Artist Spotlight: Part Forty-Nine

Today, I'd like you to meet the mulitalented artist, Lisianblue of Albuquerque, NM.  OK, so her name's really Kris, but her favorite flower is the lisianthus and her favorite color's blue (so's mine!).  Of course, in learning that about her, I had to look up lisianthus flowers, and I see why she likes 'em so much.  Check it out.

Beautiful!  So I see why she chose Lisianblue for her business name.  Speaking of which, although that photo didn't come from Lisianblue, she is an art photographer, who sells prints and cards of her flower photographs on Artfire!  And as one who's taken my own fair share of photos of flowers, I think I'm a fairly good judge of botanical photography.  Her's are gorgeous.

Am I right?  (That was a rhetorical question, silly.  Of course I'm right.)

Her penchant for flowers translates really well into another one of her art forms, painting on glass, like she's done on this ornament.

When it comes to her glass painting, I love this vase and this other ornament too.

Painting isn't all she does with glass, though.  She etches it too.

And shapes it into suncatchers.

And fills it with crystals and solders it into paperweights!

Her glasswork can be found, together with her crocheted and knitted items at her other Artfire shop.

Wait.  What?  Crochet and knit?  Yup.  Now a grandmother herself, Kris' own grandmother taught her to knit and crochet when she was eight.

Cozy!  And while her grandmother was teaching her to make those awesome things, her mom was teaching her the joy of making gifts for loved ones, like this bunny I found on her blog.  She made it for her granddaughter.  How sweet is that?

She's got a more up-to-date blog too, that you should really check out.  Enjoy!

oh Larrisa you have me giggling - I was like what, where did she find the bunny!
I love that flower, the lisianthus, unfortunately it is difficult to come by here in Alb, otherwise I would probably have gobs of photos of it too!
What a wonderful post, thank you so very much! It is interesting to read what tid bits & items people have taken to highlight!
