E Komo Mai! Welcome to my blog.

I'm delighted that you dropped in! E Komo Mai: WELCOME! This blog is basically an online visual journal is modeled after a concept I learned of in psychology 101... waaaaaaay back in college. That concept was somewhere in the chapter on The Significance of Dreams, where it mentioned someone's theory on dreaming about a house usually means that the house represents you. So I have used my actual house (Mauna Lea Manor) to structure my blog. In different rooms you will find different aspects of my life; different interests I like to blog about. This is a way to bring a little organization into my life and thoughts for myself... (dreams are in The Bedroom, Family updates are in The Living room, etc.)
This also, I would imagine, make reading this blog more convenient for you as well. If you are a grandparent interested in seeing photos and hearing stories about my boys, but maybe not so interested in my bellydancing obsession: you can just read what goes on in The Playground. But if you are an Art Collector more interested in my latest work and information on collecting, but not especially interested in my personal life: you'd enjoy The Office. Mauna Lea Manor is sort of the foyer to all the other rooms. If you would like to tour my online portfolio, please visit: www.stephaniebolton.com.
I hope you enjoy your time here ;) & continue to stop by!

The Latest

This is Lillinoi Bach.  
She lives in Thailand.  
She just turned three years old this October.
Her Daddy adores her.
This is what the painting looked like when I finished.
Of course, since then, it has been signed and sealed.
Something odd happened though, after I sealed the painting.
The kids had been in my studio and the usual brush I use for varnish was not on its usual nail.
I searched and searched but I couldn't find it.
Laying on the window sill was a sponge brush.
I picked it up... "...suppose this will have to do."
And I sealed my painting.
Well, as time passed and the varnish was drying the painting began to grow progressively bluer and bluer.  And the varnish began to crackle and crackle. 
Evidently there had been residual crackle paint from my last project still in eery depths of that innocent looking black sponge.
The painting now looks like it is about a hundred years old.
I was so upset I could hardly sleep.
The next day I was supposed to present it to the father.
But I told him what happened and decided to show him...
He loved it. 
It is now on display at Divine Goods Gallery till Christmas.
He'll be taking it back to Thailand with him after the new year.
So you have any curious interest in seeing what happened to the painting, 
visit Divine Goods at Mango Court.
If you go on a Saturday, you will catch the Christmas Faires that are going on till Christmas.
Henna art, Natural Cosmetics & treatment, Watercolorist Lynette, Craftmaking with Lisa, Jewelry, and more.

And on Saturday 5th from 10:00am - 1:00pm you can make wreaths with MAAZ.
The workshop is $60.00 for all the materials.  These wreaths are true works of art and people fly here from other islands to make them because there are special plants that only grow on the peaks of our mountains that are used for these special Christmas wreaths.
16 years or older- bring your own clippers if you can
everything else is provided.
