I am so pleased to have been invited to participate in the first "SCHERTZ ARTZ" fine art exhibition this week! The show is being held at the lovely Schertz Civic Center and is open to the public on Friday, July 31, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday, Aug. 1 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A VIP reception, which is sold out, is also planned for this evening. For the next 3 days, the civic center has been transformed into a fine art gallery! For those not from the area, Schertz is located between San Antonio and New Braunfels. They have a newly created Schertz Area Arts Council that is co-sponsoring, with Schertz Magazine, this first exhibition of high quality fine art created by some of the area's most well-known professional artists. I've posted to photos with the blog entry. One is of David (my husband and partner), being interviewed by WOAI 4's San Antonio Living, the local NBC affiliate. The other is photo of my display at the exhibit taken right after we did the installation on Wednesday. Special thanks to Stella Marroquin and Kathy Perales for providing these photos. Both are fellow artists participating also featured in the exhibit. The Schertz Civic Center is located at 1400 Schertz Parkway. If you are in the area, it's worth the short drive to see this wonderful exhibit!

Germany is the newest country offering my wildflower paintings as fine jewelry. Two of my paintings "Freedom" and "An Eternal Love" are the focus of these ladies watches being sold at 1-2-3.tv. These limited-edition, artist-inspired watches are being offered in smaller quantities than last year. There are only 500 made of each of the two watches being offered in Germany. The few auctions we have seen show they are being well received and going fast.
Meanwhile Bid.tv in the United Kingdom is using the painting "Dreamy Daze into Night" with a brand new watch style that is selling very well. This limited-edition has only 720 watches to offer, so they aren’t likely to be around for very long! So don’t wait if you want one, get it now for that special someone or for yourself.
Another difference from last year is they have etched the "Jacobson" part of my signature on the back along with the series number and my full name. We have one each of the three watches that sold last year and these are truly beautiful time pieces. J.K. Henderson, the watchmaker, has done a wonderful job in creating a fine watch that accents the artwork very tastefully.
Unfortunately they are still not being offered for sale nor can they be shipped to the U.S. from either of these companies.

Downtown New Braunfels, Texas, will be open for business from 5-9 p.m. next Friday, July 10. And so will my Casa de Linda Art Studio and Gallery, located above the New Braunfels Art League Gallery. Come on up for a glass of wine, visit for a bit and check out some of my newest Wildflower paintings! We are located at 239 W. San Antonio St...in the heart of historic downtown New Braunfels! The gallery downstairs will also be hosting a reception for the "Texas" show that just opened. See you Friday?
