Born in Kansas City, Missouri and raised in Independence, Missouri. Lloyd studied art in high school and college where he was blessed to win numerous art awards and ribbons. In Missouri he studied under the late artist Andrew Thoman.

In college was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers and went to the west coast to their rookie training camp. In his second year of playing minor league baseball he tore ligaments in his leg and being on crutches resumed his passion for painting. In California Lloyd studied under California artist Bert Carter.

Lloyd’s work is enjoyed in private collections throughout the world with some of the more notable collectors being Art Linkletter, Debbie Reynolds, and Debbie Reynold’s mother.

If you have decided that you want your home to have a tropical feel, you can paint the walls in green, maybe paint the ceiling in blue or even go out of your way to paint a mirage on the wall.

Now you can top it off with a few original tropical beach theme oil paintings that will reflect maybe some palm trees and the beach. Or anything that you think best ties in with your tropical beach theme.

Art is infinite and there are no limitations to the imagination, so you will have no problem finding what you are looking for.

You can go about this another way though, the aforementioned plan was to have the walls and the rest of the house decorated first. Then find the paintings that match, but that does not have to be the case. If you visit somewhere and see gorgeous oil paintings that just simply catch your eyes, then you can bring them home and decorate your house to match those paintings and bring it all together.

When your home is decorated to suit you, you will see that you are a lot more comfortable in it, despite whatever your circumstances may be. The house will simply shine!

Buy oil paintings that you love to get your home sparkle with their variations and style while making your home decor irresistible to you and appreciated by your visitors.

Here are a couple examples of Lloyd Dobson Artist from the Siesta Key – Sarasota area of Florida.

Best Handmade Ceramics In Siesta Key- Sarasota Florida

Best Handmade Ceramics In Siesta Key- Sarasota Florida. We must include Luna-tiques at the top of the list. So how did Lynne Ostroman and Michael Newman create Luna-tiques Ceramics?

They share the following with us.

We began our journey with clay in 2002 when we returned to the USA and Sarasota after 17 years spent in the Dominican Republic and Turks & Caicos Islands. After exploring different artistic pathways though various classes, ceramics became the one we both instantly enjoyed.

Clay has allowed us to express ourselves with our hands and the intimacy of actually touching the material is like no other medium. The clay surface has become our canvas and a way to express our personal impressions of the surrounding environment. How we interpret what we see around us. The 3 dimensional form allow one’s eyes to travel around the shape and one’s hand to feel the surface with all its texture.

We began by taking pottery classes with Ann Darling at her studio in Sarasota. Over the years we studied with a series of teachers and mentors at Penland School of Crafts, NC; La Meridiana, Certaldo, Tuscany, Italy; Greenwich Pottery, NYC; St Pete Clay/Morean Center, St. Petersburg, FL and Ghost Ranch, NM.

Our inspiration comes from tropical island memories, present day life in our home, and studio compound in Osprey, Florida. Living and working on the same patch of land has given us the energy to focus on our work. The sea, the sand, the vegetation, the sky…..they all speak to us. We love mid-century modern design and architecture and those passions also influence our work.

We travel on occasion and try to return to Dominican Republic at least twice a year. Our home studio practice occupies most days as we continue to experiment and evolve. We are full time artists and parents of two Jack Russell Terriers. Our 28 year old daughter is currently working in NYC as costume coordinator on TV series Gotham, as she seeks her dream of being a costume designer.

We have chosen to sell our creations weekly and exclusively at Siesta Key Village Farmers Market. We especially enjoy the interaction with our patrons who come from all over the globe to visit famous Siesta Key. Its quite humbling to know our art lives in faraway places like Iceland, Australia, South Africa, Brazil as well as all over North America and Europe.

Most our pieces are truly one of a kind. We like to refer our work as “Functional Art”. We hope that our pottery has a place in your everyday life and provides a function whether it be only as thing of beauty or an object of daily use.

You can find Lynne and Michael every Sunday at the Siesta Key Farmers Market from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, located at 5104 Ocean Blvd in the Village on the beautiful paradise island of Siesta Key, Florida.

The Real Truth About Bamboo Bodywear In Florida

The Real Truth About Bamboo Bodywear In Florida.

Why Bamboo Fabric?

The moisture absorption, dampness release elements and ventilation of bamboo fiber has proved to be best compared to that of other textile products.

The intersecting surface of Bamboo Fiber is filled with various tiny gaps and micro-holes; it has much better moisture absorption and ventilation.

With this unparalleled microstructure, bamboo fiber garments can effectively absorb and evaporate human sweat in a split second, and make the wearer feel cool in summer and never suffocating in winter. Apparel made from bamboo is 1-2 degrees lower in comparison to normal clothing in the hot summer.

Who is Bambooty Bodygear?

Bambooty Bodygear began with a single design concept in 2011, “The Bambooty Original” a neck gator/bandana alternative made from Bamboo Fiber.

Founder R. Joseph Monach  designed the “Bambooty Original” out of necessity. The search for a comfortable, utilitarian designed bandana alternative yielded no results. As a runner Joe realized a void in the market existed. Joe created the prototype by cutting and sewing a long underwear top.

While the design for the Bambooty Original worked, the fabric did not. Joe decided to pursue alternative natural fabrics and settled on Bamboo Fiber. The bamboo fiber is soft and luxurious to the touch but also offers a sundry of performance characteristics.

Joe spent the summer of 2012 in Pittsburgh after a nasty divorce. It is here that as fate would have it, Joe met Andrea Meythaler, his current life and business partner. The two found a synergy that translates into what the company has become today but at the time neither had known the evolution to come.

Joe returned to Florida to reconnect with his 3 sons and his mother (saint) who help launch the company with a $500 cash infusion and a house where Joe could re-invent himself and his life.

Joe continued to wait tables at the age of 47 while pursuing the concept of the Bambooty Original. He and his mother spent countless hours researching and developing what would be the basis of the company. Joe established a relationship with a Chinese textile manufacturing company and placed the first order “Bambooty Originals”.

The order arrived 45 days later and created a moment of future clarity. This was to be the direction! The order consisted of 3 colors in this one style which were Black, Pink and White. Joe started taking the product to running events, triathlons and anywhere athletes might be educated about the product.

The combination of the design and the bamboo fiber which aside from being ultra soft is also a natural performance fabric was received with open arms by the community. The black and the pink sold but the white was not moving.

Joe and Andrea continued a 6-month long distance relationship with Skype chats, and frequent travel. Joe is 51 and Andrea is 29 and as unlikely as the pair might appear in the initial meeting of them both, you soon come to see the connection. This connection was not to be denied and soon Andrea moved back to her home state of Florida.

Andrea and Joe are both University educated. Andrea attended Carnegie Mellon University for Fine Arts and Joe attended the Indiana University Of Pa. for Business. Joe’s Mother and the third business partner raised 4 children as a single mother owing her own hair salons for 50 years.

When Andrea arrived and moved into the home with Joe and Rochelle, she immediately started attending the events where the “Bambooty Original” was being sold. She notice the fact the white was not selling as effectively as the other colors and offered to hand dye the white thus creating some color.

Joe and Andrea, his girlfriend, went to Joann Fabric and purchased a dye kit and went to work. This was the beginning of Bambooty Bodygear as it is today. The newly dyed white originals sold out in 1 hour and gave us our first wholesale account with a national running store. Today Bambooty has 26 products in production.

Bambooty has grown in the last several years by taking the initial $500 investment and re-investing over and over and over again. Bambooty Headgear has since evolved to Bambooty Bodygear as we shifted away from offering a line of headgear to a more complete line of Bamboo Fiber Apparel. Our biggest obstacle to date was not having enough product to satisfy our consumer demand.

2017 will begin a partnership with AMAZON and multiple distributors via wholesale agreements and additional market models.

You can find Bambooty Bodygear with Joe and Andrea every Sunday at the Siesta Key Farmers Market located in the Village at 5104 Ocean Blvd. from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. Their website
