New United States of America maps by artist Sharon Cummings. Colorful explosions of your favorite destinations.
I have been working on some new maps for quite awhile now. It’s time to share them. The stars and stripes with a cool modern twist! USA
The Statue Of Liberty. Liberty is defined as the state or condition of people who are able to act and speak freely. It is a right we enjoy in the United States. It is a right denied to so many in the World. For some it is a target for their hate. My heart goes out to all of my brothers and sisters in Orlando, Florida who are processing a horrendous act of terror. To those who lost their lives for simply living in this beautiful country and enjoying our freedoms. We do recover. We do overcome. We share the American sprit…
I cannot imagine there is anyone in the U.S. that doesn’t know a Veteran. Either you’ve got a family member, friend or neighbor who has served our country, or you might even just have a Facebook friend who has given their time and a portion of their life to protect all of the rights we enjoy so freely here in America. A special shout out to my Uncle David for all he has given. Others like my Grandpa and Dad have passed away. Today is for the living! Say “thank you” to a vet today!

For those of you following my map quest, I should say that I will not be creating all 50 states unless someone requests that I do so. Nothing personal to all of my Wyoming fans, but a rectangle really does not make for much excitement. 😉 So I’ve found myself attracted to the funky shaped states such as my own: Florida.
Known as the “Sunshine State” for obvious reasons, Florida is kind of shaped like a gun which I find somewhat fitting. Because every time I read a news report about some bizarre crime, the scene is always somewhere in Florida. Truly we have many interesting people here and the real crazies seem to be drawn to it. If a man is going to eat another man’s face while he sleeps, it will happen in Florida. If someone will be attacked with a dead squirrel….yup, it will be here.
All of the oddities aside, I love my state. I have lived here almost my entire life and I have no desire to move anywhere else. If you want entertainment we have Disney, Epcot, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens. But the real attraction are our beaches. They are absolutely stunning! Sarasota’s powder white sands and turquoise waves equals heaven to me. I love the lush tropical landscaping and the relaxed atmosphere of the smaller cities.

I am one of those people who gets focused on one thing and I cannot let go. “A dog with a bone” as one of my friends likes to say. Even though I am preoccupied with Society 6 at the moment, my work is still going places. Namely to Michigan, New York and Massachusetts. 🙂 I have been to two of these states so far and plan to pick up New York on my way to Canada soon.
Where are YOU going?
More maps are on their way including some fun country pieces. I love creating these as they combine my love of color and my attraction to interesting shapes. 🙂
Stay tuned for the next adventure!

Sometimes you have to take a new look at an old piece and see a better way to present it. This one has languished in my portfolio long enough. It was good, but not great. I took this photograph a few years ago while on vacation with my husband in Sarasota, Florida. It was high tourist season and the beaches were filled with screaming children, lobster people and old folks slathered in sunscreen. As we walked the shore after dinner, there was this one magic moment. A little girl playing in the sand all alone. She was not playing with any of the other children nearby. Mom and Dad watched from a safe distance and it just struck me that she looked so happy. Completely oblivious to her surroundings…totally absorbed in the pleasure of the beach sand….she had “Perfect Company”.
