Hula and Wonder Updates

Here’s some Hula and Wonder [exhibit] updates from previous posts.

It’s pretty incredible how Hula gets around on his paddle board from place to place and the beautifully realistic portraits he paints. Most respect his ability and talent, which is why it was so surprising to learn that recently his new Clara Mural in West Palm Beach was vandalized and his painting supplies were stolen.

I was able to visit the Wonder Exhibit at the Renwick Gallery on the opening day. Luckily this was the day to go because it’s been even more crowded since.

Here is some pretty awe-inspiring artwork that I’ve tried to capture while there but in most respects they are so much better to experience in person.

I'm an artist, wife and mother of two boys. I started my illustration business, The Occasional Palette over 23 years ago, when my oldest son was an infant. Once my children were in school, I began painting decorative, faux finishes and murals through my second business, Casart, now over 19 years old. Now, my third business, Casart Coverings is a springboard from my second. Click on the link on the sidebar to see innovative, custom, designer wallcovering, removable and reusable wallpaper.
