Here are some pics of some rather different, unusual, some a little weird, but all fun -- pieces I've been working on lately. Come take a look at them and more at my space in Country Roads, in downtown Orange, CA!!
Welcome to Decorating With Art -- the official Lori Gutierrez blog! Bringing you an artist's eye view of the world, I want to show how you can find beauty, charm, and style - the usual and the unusual - in everyday life. Anything and everything you see, even those things you don't even notice, has potential to become artwork. Life brings subjects and models for creativity, every moment, every day. Read my blog to learn how to find them, and more about my passion, my love, my life - art! Take a look at what I have for sale at LoriGutierrezArt.Etsy.com.

One of my favorite subjects without a doubt -- she is so full of beauty and grace.
Demure Mermaid on Vintage Hand-mirror
One of my favorite mermaids that I've painted, and on an unusual and pretty item! I wonder what she's thinking.... :-)
Cherubs in Flight
Victorian Wedding Shoes - Before....
Aren't these to die for? I just had to have them! I saw them as Marie Antoinette's very own wedding shoes. But, like everything else, I had to do something special with them....
And here's what I did. I painted pink roses and added a rhinestone buckle and bow! Marie was so gloriously over-the-top with her fashion, I think she would have absolutely lost her head over them.. Oh wait, she did.. :-)
