A colorful weekender tote bag will help you stand out from the crowd for a day out on a weekend getaway. Tote bags are crafted with soft, spun poly-poplin fabric for comfort, but are also double-stitched seams for durability. The cotton handles are 1" thick and are perfect for carrying the bag over your shoulder or in your hand. A must-have accessory for the summer, Talyas paintings provide a unique artistic touch for high-end creative tastes.

Behind the Scenes
Painting still lifes is a long tradition among oil painters throughout the centuries, providing needed practice with the luxury of controlled lighting and still subjects. Fresh flowers, however, particularly these Casablanca Lilies from my garden, have proved to not be very still after all. I found myself chasing the light on them and the life quickly ebbed from their blossoms. My faith reminded me to keep my heart still while my brush rushed wildly to capture this moment. Casablanca lilies are my favorite flowers and they are a symbol for celebration. No wonder they don't hold still! When my time it up here, I expect Casablanca lilies planted with my remains.~ Peace
