Are Plumeria on Your Favorite Flower List?

Art Pint - Plumeria

Plumeria I Square

FIVE FACTS ABOUT PLUMERIA

  1. Plumeria is related to the Oleander
  2. It’s common name is Frangipani
  3. Both possess poisonous, milky sap (similar to Euphorbia among them the Poinsettia)
  4. Flowers are most fragrant at night in order to lure sphinx moths to pollinate them. The flowers have no nectar , and simply dupe their pollinators as they move from flower to flower in their fruitless search for nectar.

AND THE BIG NUMBER 5 It’s the flower most requested by people at my street fair booth.

Every week, without fail, I get asked, “Do you have a painting of Plumeria?“ And weekly for about 5 years, my answer was simply…No, but I will soon. Then last fall a couple bought 3 pieces of my artwork, which were all tropical in nature.

Of course she asked the famous question. And I promptly answered…no, but I will soon.

OK I finally did it. The painting…Plumeria I White. (I knew there were more in sight)

DO YOU HAVE A PAIR OF PLUMERIA?

That became the next most often asked question. It didn’t take very long and then there was Plumeria III Pink.

Plumeria III Square

Now there are a pair of Plumeria paintings and that’s just how people are buying them.

OK so you want to know … where is Plumeria II painting? That is another story, for another time.

About Bamboo…

Giant bamboos are the largest members of the grass family.

Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world. In a single day, a bamboo plant can grow an average of up to 23.6 inches, and certain species have been measured to grow as much as 47.6 inches in one 24-hour period. However, bamboo is not a type of wood, but a type of grass. It grows most abundantly in the East and Southeast Asian regions of the world, but it can also be found in Northern Australia, India, sub-Saharan Africa and the tropical regions of the Americas.

Aside from being used as building material for many centuries bamboo has also had major cultural significance in countries like China, where bamboo is a symbol of longevity. Japan’s Shinto religion makes use of bamboo as a sacred object. Bamboo forests often surround Shinto shrines and are believed to serve as barriers against evil spirits. Buddhist temples often have bamboo groves, as they create a peaceful and meditative setting.

Why is it called Lucky Bamboo

Along with its ease of growth, Lucky Bamboo has long been associated with the Eastern practice of Feng Shui – or the bringing of natural elements of water, fire, earth, wood and metal into balance within the environment. Lucky Bamboo is believed to be an ideal example of the thriving wood and water element, with the addition of a red ribbon sometimes tied around the stalks – which is believed to “fire” the positive flow of energy or chi in the room.

The number of stalks also has meaning : three stalks for happiness; five stalks for wealth; six stalks for health. Four stalks, however, are always avoided since the word “four” in Chinese sounds too similar to the Chinese word for “death”!

Growth and Harvesting

Bamboo has become a popular eco-friendly alternative to using hardwood as building material. Because of its rapid growth and short life-cycle, bamboo is one of the most renewable natural resources in the world, and it can be harvested on a regular basis without causing significant damage to its surrounding ecosystem.

Unlike hardwoods, bamboo plants achieve their full height and girth in just one growing season, which lasts between three and four months.

Uses

Bamboo has a wide variety of uses. From construction to cooking, it has been a part of human culture and consumption for centuries. Another very common use for bamboo today is as a decorative tool. Small bamboo plants are becoming very popular in western interior design, and Asian cultures have been using it to decorate rooms and altars for centuries.

Unique “Dahlia IX“painting from the Tea Stain collection by artist Jackie Jacobson. THE NEUTRALS – for today’s transitional home decor.

Decorate your home or office in style with eye-catching framed art prints. Back in time, people gave flowers for any occasion.

But as giving flowers has lost significance, adorning walls with flower images is as popular as ever. The lasting appeal of colorful flower art is here by Jackie Jacobson. You don’t have to be a Victorian to appreciate that.

They also make great gifts. Do you know someone who could use a dash of color on their walls? Why not give them something they will enjoy for many years to come?

Street Fair – Update

COD Street Fair – Weekend Events

Shopping Fairs

Shopping the Street Fair

SHOPPING PALM DESERT 

COD Street Fair is OPEN ALL SUMMER

Saturday and Sunday 7-noon

I’m taking the summer off to paint and will return October 2

MEET me at the COD Street Fair this weekend

I’m celebrating. For the first time in 9 years, I’m taking off 4 months from the Street Fair. It has been the weekend event in my life, and it has been wonderful. But this year, I said, “I need new paintings, and I can’t fit painting into my schedule. So I’m taking the summer off, painting and putting together a group of new canvas prints.”

To celebrate with my customers, I’ve decided that I’ll make it one of the best weekend events. People come to College of the Desert Street Fair for special shopping opportunities. And this year, they are finding it in our booth. I just don’t want to pack up all of the canvas prints for 4 months. They won’t be seen or enjoyed in our warehouse. So I’ve decided to sell all of the canvas prints at 50% off my regular prices. And I’ve been doing just that.

WEEKEND EVENT – STREET FAIR SPECIAL

This last weekend, I will sell every last canvas print. What does that mean to you? I’m bringing all the canvas prints from my warehouse, and if you make me a respectable offer, I will take it. That’s right…I’m here to have fun and to see people leave with artwork they love at affordable, VERY AFFORDABLE, prices. Stop by the street fair booth this Saturday, May 29 or Sunday, May 30. Arrive early for a complete selection of my unique canvas prints and celebrate with me. You’ll find me at the street fair in Lot#2 – Space 75.

REVIEWS OF THE STREET FAIR – BY SHOPPERS

  • Gotta go there! Sep 15, 2009 My  family and I have been to this street fair many times. It is always a new experience when we go there. Lots and lots of great deals to choose from. The food is to die for! The people are friendly and very helpful. You can bring your doggie too! Definetly a place to see.
  • Fun place for shopping! Jan 12, 2009It’s a must see. I enjoy this street fair and I come to visit once every season. Lots of sellers and lots to buy so bring a list or you end up buying what you don’t need. Lots of walking too so wear comfortable shoes. Come early to avoid crowds and parking gets full easily. Some parking are on dirt so don’t wear fancy shoes. Some vendors are always there but not all. It’s a lot of fun especially if you go with several people. I usually go with my girlfriends or sometimes I just go by mysellf. I like to come early when its cooler and less crowded. I highly recommend it but 90 min is my max
  • If your going for unique! Jan 12, 2010 I went in 2008 and found a ton of unique jewellery and clothing!! Some was a bit pricey but expect that in Palm Springs. Great golf gear too!! Definitely a must see when in Palm Springs!! The food was fantastic ….first time I had a tamales and they were great!

SEE HOW WE SETUP THE STREET FAIR BOOTH
