Texans spend big for the holidays - Hays Free Press
Wallethub analyzed over 500 cities across the nation for the report.
Here in Hays County, the San Marcos Premium Outlets and Tanger Outlets have consistently accumulated over $1 million in sales tax revenue in the month of December alone, according to reports obtained by the City of San Marcos from 2016 to the present.
"(Texas) ranked so high because of the large holiday budget potentially available for each household, which is over $2,000," said Jill Gonzalez, an analyst at Wallethub. "This means the consumers in Texas are, in general, in a comfortable financial position, which allows them to engage in holiday spending without too much stress or fear of going over the budget."
According to the National Retail Federation, Americans are expected to spend around $1,000 during the Holiday season, which is up four percent from 2017.
But while many cities in Texas can afford to splurge during the season of giving, there are many cities across the country that struggle in this department.
"We found the largest holiday budgets to be more than $2,000, with the largest in Texas' (city) Flower Mound, at $2,761," Gonzalez said. "The difference between the first and last budget is huge. Flower Mound's budget is over 43 times bigger than Cleveland's, where people can spend only $64 on average on gifts."
The study credits Texas' low taxes, debt to income ratio, savings and other expenses to draw its conclusion. Acc... Nov 28, 2018
Artists take diverse approaches to flowers in two central Arkansas exhibits - Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
Divine Energy, a 28-by-20 inch silverpoint, watercolor, crayon, white charcoal and graphite on tinted acrylic gesso and watercolor paper. It is a painstakingly executed presentation of allium schubertii -- aka flowering onion. In Williams-Smith's hands, three of these plants turn into a fireworks-like explosion of creative energy. Divine, indeed.
Roses in the exhibition also capture the eye -- especially the gorgeous Clairvoyance, a 2012 silverpoint on black gesso. In it one sees dawning of awareness, of truth emerging from darkness. Pink Rose is a 2007 silverpoint and watercolor that is only 5 by 4 inches, but its impact is much larger.
Also present in the gallery is a vase of dried roses and one of allium schubertii, which inspired works in the exhibition.
Williams-Smith's growth in technique and her expression of spirit and determination inspired by nature's flowers has moments of beauty, power and revelation.
A catalog ($10) also accompanies this exhibition.
. . .
Williams-Smith will lead a silverpoint workshop at 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Nov. 17 at the Hearne Gallery. The $75 fee includes all supplies. For information, call (501) 372-6822.
Marjorie Williams-Smith, "The Messengers: A Survey of Work in Metalpoint," through Jan. 5, Hearne Fine Art, 1001 Wright Ave., Suite C, Little Rock. Hours: 9 a.m.-5 p.m Monday-Friday; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday. Info: hearnefineart.com, (501) 372-6822
SHEARON AND ARTAUD
Diana Shearon's oils are also a bit deceptive. To say her floral canvases are things of beauty is stating the obvious. Her work is representational, at times bordering on magical realism/romanticism.
At first glance, Tempest aches with beauty. Look deeper and the beauty goes deeper -- into yearning, a longing for home and hearth in the array of yellow roses. Red roses are the stars of Reprise, while sunflowers fill the canvas of the inviting Sunflower Bouquet. It's a calming, cheery balm for the spirit. She is capable of surprises, too, as the striking minimalism of the still life Dill & Limes shows.
Shearon broadens her view with Summer Garden, an explosion of color that embraces a larger field of vision. Generally, her floral work is superior to the landscapes, but Hilltop 1, 2 and 3 -- a triptych -- shows she has a real affinity for depicting the sky and cloudscapes. She works well with nature's spaciousness, leaving the viewer wishing he was there.
Shearon's talents have been recognized with her acceptance at a number of national juried exhibits and a best in show at the Memphis Germantown Art League's 41st Annual Juried Star Exhibition, honors well deserved.
Also showing at the gallery is French award-winning watercolor artist Georges Artaud. Whi... Oct 26, 2018
Narcotics professor, florist found faith
I've ever worked," she said of the jail. She even takes her students on tours
of the facility as part of the class she teaches at NOVA, Narcotics and
Dangerous Drugs. "I'm teaching my students that if you treat someone the right
way, you won't have half the battles," she said. That philosophy extends to the way she
interacts with everyone, including her students. At the beginning of the school
year, she tells them she's happy they chose to take her class. She gives out her
cell phone number. Sale knows she won't get inundated with calls, and it lets
the students know she's there for them. "What if they need me?" she said. "For
some reason people forget to welcome - that's my keyword. You gave this
wonderful individual a feeling of importance. How hard was that?"Flowers are another way Sale likes to
spread a little kindness to others. A few years ago, she took a class on floral
design. By happenstance, her teacher was a social worker who donated flowers to
women's shelters. Sale fell in love with floristry and spent three years off
and on at a floral design school in Manhattan. She also volunteered arranging
flowers at women's shelters. "It was the first time (the women) ever had
flowers. Can you imagine?" she said. "They would come up to me and cry. I would
teach them and I would say, ‘Put them next to your bedside because you deserve
flowers - always remember that.' " Now she has her own small business - Sandi's
Floral Creations. A few years ago, Sale took her flowers
and retired to the beach. But after six months, she found she was miserable. So
her brother invited her to stay with his family for a while. One Sunday, she
joined them for Mass at St. Leo the Great Church in Fairfax. "Everybody seemed so peaceful, and the
welcoming was amazing," she said. "I said, ‘What planet is this?' And my
brother goes, ‘That's our faith.' I said, ‘How do I get that?' " So Sale was
back in the classroom again, this time attending RCIA. In 2017, she was
received into the church. Sale's Catholic faith is "the best gift
I've ever had," and so she uses her talents to give back to the church. Sale arranges
the flowers for the altar at St. Leo Church and occasionally at diocesan
events. She likes to volunteer with the youth group and is a member of the Legion
of Mary. "It is finally a place where I feel I
belong. I was meant to be here, and the joy I have every day from belonging and
finding my path is more than I can ever say," said Sale. Her hope is to bring
people the light of Christ through all she does. "I waited 60-some years to get
this gift - I want to shout it from the treetops."

'That brick red frock with flowers everywhere': painting Katherine Mansfield
Katherine was attracted to the artist, Rice and Mansfield were not likely to become loversAnne Estelle Rice had first met Murry at the Café d'Harcourt in the Boulevard St Michel in Paris in 1910. At that time Anne lived with the Scottish painter John Duncan Fergusson, who recalled that he and Anne had "sat beside a very good-looking lad [Murry] with a nice girl ["Yvonne", Murry's current girlfriend]." Murry first met with Mansfield late the following year, and Murry soon introduced Fergusson and Rice to Katherine (Pictured above right: JD Fergusson, Anne Estelle Rice in Paris (Closerie des lilas), 1907. She and Anne were to become close friends through the rest of Mansfield's life, although Rice is only mentioned in passing in the many biographies of the writer. Mansfield dedicated her New Zealand story of 1912, "Ole Underwood", to her, Katherine summing up her warm feelings for Anne in a letter to Murry on 23-24 May:Drey and Anne came last evening and we sat up late talking of Anne's life … You know she is an exceptional woman – so gay, so abundant, in full flower just now and really beautiful to watch. She is so healthy and you know when she is happy and working she has great personal "allure" – physical "allure" ‒ I love watching her.Mansfield concludes this passage by reassuring Murry: "Of course she is not in the least important." Perhaps this was a coded message to him that, although Katherine was attracted to the artist, Rice and Mansfield were likely neither to become lovers, nor to intrude in their relationship. In a later letter to Rice (26 December 1920), Katherine makes clear her admiration of the artist: "Whenever I examine things here – the lovely springing line of flowers and peach leaves par exemple, I realise what a marvellous painter you are – the beauty of your line – the life behind it."Eleven years older than Mansfield, Anne Estelle Rice was born in 1877 at Conshohocken, a mill town near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, then grew up at Pottstown, some 50 kilometres away. She was said by her husband to be of Scottish, Irish and Pennsylvania-Dutch descent. From 1894 she studied art for three years at the School of Industrial Art in Philadelphia before going on to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where she studied with William Merritt Chase and others.Even in her student years, she was contributing fashion illustrations for Collier's, Harper's and the Saturday Evening Post, before moving to Paris in 1905, where she worked for Philadelphia's North American magazine. At Paris-Plage (now Le Touquet) on the Normandy coast two years later, she met and formed the close relationship with John Duncan Fergusson, who introduced her to the Fauvists. The aesthetic concept of "rhythm" provided the connective tissue between the writers and artists involved with the magazineJD Fergusson has come to be associated with three other Scottish painters with similar a...
