Here’s a photo of this years Yard Art Day sign – approved by my cat LaLa.

If you’ve filled out your participants application – just come grab a sign off my side porch located at 1908 Matheson Ave, Charlotte 28205. We will shortly have signs in other locations for distribution. But time is running out before the big Yard  Art Day weekend coming up. And would love to see these in yards soon.

Creative Testimonial to Yard Art Day

A dear friend of YAD and a contributing artist last year and this year is Ilisa Millermoon. Her sculpted Goddess last year was exceptional. And this year she has topped herself and set the goal high for all of us.

Here’s a photo outtake from her Alice In Wonderland yard art PLUS a testimonial for YARD ART DAY.

“Why do I participate in Yard Art Day? At the age I three I was compelled to draw all over my bedroom walls. I immediately received a whooping, but that did not dampen my overwhelming desire to create!
Some of my fondest childhood memories are going to the dump with my grandmother. This was before people threw away food. We would find all kinds of treasures and refurbish them or make them into something completely unique.
I am an Intuitive Energy Artist. My chosen medium is acrylic ink and gouache on watercolor paper.
Yard Art Day gives me the opportunity to work with new mediums. I thoroughly enjoy the adventure.
My home and yard are my sanctuary, my little slice of heaven.
Seeing the sparkle in the eyes of my neighborhood children as we discuss art, fairies, and imagination is a joy!”

Love and Light,
