Oyster Nativity 2020

A natural art piece created with the spirit of Christmas on my heart…palm frond pieces,  a starfish, the perfect Mary and Joseph oyster union, and baby Jesus in the manger oyster nestled in Spanish moss.

Redfish

Introducing Redfish Cutout #1!  This is my first art project in my new studio.  This fish is cut out of wood and will look fantastic on any wall in Port O’Connor.  A few will be available at the next POC Farmer’s Market on Saturday, November 14th.   Other fish species are already in the works.  Place your orders for Christmas now!

New Merch with the Same Feel

Redfish Mug Collection

The Redfish Mug Collection will be available once again starting in November 2020, as these make a great gift for the holidays.  In addition to redfish, I have also produced mugs featuring my “Trout on Black” and “Redfish on Black”, as well as “Roseate Spoonbill Portrait, Calm Waters” and “Sunset Pelican” that seem to please the bird lovers.  Please contact me for order requests.  

Fishing Partner Onesies

Back by popular demand, my onesies with my original art are back in production.  My best sellers are:  “Grandpa’s/Daddy’s Fishin’ Partner”, “Born to Fish”, and “Who You Callin’ Shrimp?!”  These can be customized upon request.  Recently, at the POC Farmer’s Market, I met a lady that said she remembered purchasing onesies at Clark’s Gift Shop when her children were babies, at least 15 years ago!  I actually started these as gifts by painting on the actual fabric.  Care instructions:  Machine wash cold, inside out.  No chlorine bleach.  Tumble dry low.  Happy Fishing!  Please contact me for order requests

New commission by a generous guy for a friend that needed some local art to adorn her “Casa de Flamenco”!

Pink Flamingo at Sunset

Art Exhibit

First National Bank, located at 1101 Hwy 35 South in Port Lavaca, Texas, is hosting an art exhibit in the main lobby for the Port Lavaca Art Guild.   This will be my first invitation to be a part of an art exhibit, so I am pretty excited!  The exhibit will be available to view September 9th – the 27th.

Art Therapy on Vacation

Redfish Turnin’!  I took some time off of work to get some art therapy in.  This was a new commission and will be a birthday gift for a beloved dad turning 80!  Hope he enjoys it as much as I enjoyed painting it 🙂

Perfect Pearl Oyster

Perfect Pearl Oyster

This “Perfect Pearl Oyster” was lovingly created in memory a dear one lost too early.  Life is not perfect…but love is.  Soothing turquoise, yellow & purple hues bring comfort and  peace to heart.  ~Dawn Ragusin

Turquoise Ombre Redfish

Turquoise Ombre Redfish

The “Turquoise Ombre Redfish” was created just for fun.  I held onto this piece for about a year before donating it.  A beautiful young lady in our community courageously battling her own cancer, yet always serving and caring for others.  Port O’Connor came together to show love & support for her journey…I was grateful I had this to give for this crucial benefit. ~Dawn Ragusin

 

Redfish Mugs

P.S.  This redfish is also a part of my “Redfish Mug Collection”, available at Salt Blossom Floral & Gift Shop located at 215 W. Adams St. and Port O’Connor Rod & Gun, located at 82 N. Byers- both in Port O’Connor, Texas.
