Horses have been such a wonderful way to meet amazing people.
At riding stables like the one that’s my second home, there’s a clientele ranging from children to seniors. Most of them are female, but the males who ride are cool guys too.
Quite a few years ago I met the most engaging mother and daughter duo. As I came to know them better I found them to be charming, clever, creative and wonderfully crazy. Judith is the ‘Mum’ and the daughter is Natasha.
Judith is a talented Master Gardener and artist as well. She and Natasha have launched a small business called Lapisdragon Arts. Judith’s unique watercolour artwork is beautifully rendered on silk scarves as well as Watercolour Art Prints and Art Greeting Cards.
The photo at the beginning of this blog showcases some of their greeting card designs. Judith’s love of flowers and plants is radiated through her painting.
They’ll also have large Art Print versions that you may frame and use in your home and office decor. Below are couple of larger photos so you can see the beautiful detail in her cards.
Judith and Nat are hosting an open house on Sat, July 27 and Sun July 28 to view the artwork. You’ll be lucky enough to see Judith’s gardens as well! They live just outside of Stittsville. I plan to be there – so maybe I’ll see you there. You can find all the details on the following links.
If you’re on Facebook – simply go to this link to learn more. Look under “events” to find open house details:
If you’re NOT ON Facebook – here’s their email – they’ll send you all the details:
If you’d like to just get to the online shopping – here are some links to connect you with Judith and Natasha:
I love these two women to death. So I asked them for little ‘bios’ so you could get to know them too. Here’s what Natasha sent. I’ve copied and pasted it so you can sense the humour and kind spirits of these two. Enjoy!
