Spiritopia Pomegranate Liqueur

A really fun project that I was happy to be involved in.  Spiritopia Pomegranate Liqueur.  I was asked by Spiritopia, a Premium Artisan Liqueur Distillery in Oregon, to do a painting for their latest Liqueur label.  I truly love these projects, where I can showcase my watercolors in a different format.  They were a pleasure to work for...and their Liqueurs are scrumptious!  ♥♥♥  If you're interested in purchasing the Spiritopia Pomegranate Liqueur, just go to their web site: Spiritopia.  They were even kind enough to name a drink after me, how cool is that, check out "Jacqueline Rose Cocktail".  I love this company!

This weekend is the Leeper Park Art Fair in South Bend, Indiana.
I'm in booth #20 on Michigan Street if you'd like to stop by.
The fair is on Saturday & Sunday.  It's supposed to be a beautiful weekend.

Remember that because of the road construction,
the city is suggesting that people park at either:

• the new St. Joseph High School (453 N Notre Dame Ave)
• Century Center (120 S. St. Joseph St)
Both of these locations will offer free shuttles to Leeper Park.  Shuttles will run Saturday from 9:45 am to 6:30 pm, and Sunday from 9:45 am to 5:30 pm.

This painting is an ode to all of our Magnolia trees here in the Midwest that were frozen before the buds got a chance to bloom this year.  It's heartbreaking because I always look forward to them....they are normally just stunning.
