Bottles and Barns

Not a likely combination you might say – Bottles and Barns – unless it is this joint enterprise between two talented ladies.

Susan Martin is a bottle enhancing machine!  She can turn the most mundane beer bottle into a creative conversation starter.  Her hand gives new life to any  bottle you can imagine.

Melinda Ray, retired pediatrician, is turning her energy to the canvas creating not only the image but using all means of wood fragments for framing her paintings.

The two teamed up this holiday season for a home show offering up their talents for our gift giving pleasure. (Well some people may have bought something for themselves – we won’t mention that.)

Susan certainly offers plenty of choices for showing team spirit…

After the hail storm in Jackson last spring, the cold frame in the Eudora Welty garden was heavily damaged.  Melinda quickly grabbed up the fragments as it was being dismantled and here they are lovingly used to frame one of her paintings…

She did not limit her offerings to barns alone…
