Welcome to Raphaella's Journey Continued
"It is in being true to myself that I am most of use to others; It is in expressing the joy of my own heart that I am open to hold and behold the hearts of others; It is in seeing my own beauty that I am able to experience the magnificence of others" - Raphaella Vaisseau

I'm a kitten foster mom for Theresa Foley's non-profit spay-neuter rescue organizations: The Key West Cat Society and the Venice Cat Coalition.
Join our Facebook page: the Sarasota Kitten Club to be in the conversation all revolving around saving cats and kittens in Florida (and simply loving them). Buy a T-shirt (my art is on the T-shirt), send a donation, send love. It all goes to help the cats who love us back unconditionally and add countless moments of joy to my life.
If you live in Sarasota County or nearby areas and are interested in adopting one of these babies (or others), please call me at 941-993-7001. - Raphaella

I realized today that, because of the heat, I wasn't getting to paint as much as I like because my studio was set up outside in the lanai. By 9am on any given day, the heat and humidity maxed me out. Today I was inspired to create a solution. I carved out a 5' x 6' space in a corner of my bedroom, laid down some indoor/outdoor carpet to protect the floor tile, and created an indoor studio.
I'm excited about my new space. I have so many new galleries and shops around the country wanting original art (woo-hoo!) that I have a lot of creating to do. Now I have a more comfortable place to create.
I'll probably move back outside in the fall and winter months because I love painting outside when it's lovely weather. Hey, maybe I'll create Studio 2 and have both. Sounds like fun to me.
