“Elite Feet Luxury Foot Care Spa”,
by Evy Okerstrom,
Watercolor, Pen & Ink

My creative life continues with two exciting commissions. First, I was asked to paint a picture of the Elite Feet, Luxury Foot Care Spa in watercolor, pen & ink. The result was a picture of a beautiful place to spend time relaxing while being pampered by the staff at the spa. It also showcases the spa’s name prominently. The Elite Feet Studio is located at 4319 S. Ridgewood Ave., Port Orange, FL 32127, ph: 386-717-3311.  The second commission by a member of Trinity Lutheran Church is a vibrant acrylic painting with a radiant rainbow against the background of late afternoon clouds at sunset. It has a bible verse celebrating the beauty of rainbows as a symbol of hope.  This painting will be hung in the Fellowship Hall at Trinity Lutheran Church, 485 Turnbull Bay Rd, NSB, FL 32168. Both places are open for you to see these paintings.

The weather is cooler and the holiday season is approaching! I have been busy preparing for the “Gallery of Gifts” at the Hub on Canal. It opens Friday, November 17th with a Members Preview at 5:30 pm, and Saturday, November 18th it will be open from 10am to 5 pm until Christmas Eve. Be sure to mark your calendars for these dates!  This year, I am again creating a series of small 5” x 5” watercolor and pen & ink paintings, perfect for that special someone.  My new 2024 calendars, which have plenty of space to write notes, will be there too.

I will not be teaching in November and December. I will resume my Urban Sketching with Watercolor, Pen & Ink in January. Stay tuned for more details next month.
