|Nestled in the quaint waterfront town of Palmetto, Florida.....|
|....is the historic home and totally cool studio of my long-time friend|
Sharon Kay Stouffer Derflinger.
|She is the creative force behind HUNTERS CROSSINGS ART.|
|Magnificent antique doors welcome....|
|...and inspiration surrounds you upon entering the rustic studio.|
|(I could play with this rusty treasure all day)|
|Outside is equally inspiring as you wander in the garden among Sharon's concrete and gourd creations.|
|This massive dried sunflower atop large acorn gourd is A-MAZ-ING!|
|Built in 1911, the beautifully restored house is on the historic home register and just a few blocks from the water. It was the home of the only florist in the area in the old days.|
|Richly textured walls and vintage architectural accents create the perfect touch of interior drama.|
|Up-lighting creates sillouette-type shadows from every angle.|
|Of course Sharon's MAGNIFICENT signature art crosses take center stage.|
|She is also a sculptor and painter of primitive art.|
So much talent!
|A fabulous collecton of face jugs also reside here.|
Sharon shows and sells her creations and vintage findings at Renninger's in Mt. Dora, FL
every 3rd weekend.
Her art work is also available at WWW.ETSY.COM/SHOP/HUNTERSCROSSINGS
