A Day with Sunny Carvalho

A really fun workshop at Ephemera Paducah yesterday with artist Sunny Carvalho! She is an amazing teacher and talented artist. Sunny lives just outside of Birmingham, AL and teaches at workshops all over the country.

This is my art from the workshop. While I like it, I don’t’ love it, typical of my response to most workshops. I did learn some new techniques and can’t wait to try them in The Underground.
As always I totally enjoyed hanging out in the Ephemera Paducah studio and making new artist friends. Saturday’s group included folks from Southeast Missouri, Halls, Tennessee, a group of four from various cities in Kentucky as well as a couple of hometown girls. Here is some of their work.

Sunny had some of her art for sale; couldn’t leave without purchasing an artsy purse!

You can see more of Sunny Carvalho’s work on these sites.

While I spent the day creating art, Handy Randy started the studio renovation! Can’t help but love this man!



  1. It was so great to meet you and get to hang out all day painting, Chris! I hope you will love your bag and I truly hope to see you again soon!

  2. I love the bag! Looking forward to you returning to Paducah, hopefully for another class!

  3. I plan to do a post about prayer flags soon.
