A New Look, a Birthday and a Blog!!

To start things off…here’s a big THANK YOU for stopping by! The ol’ website has been under construction this past month, with a completely new layout, color scheme and ALL new high res.  images.  If this is your first time taking a look…please feel free to plunk around on the tabs and sub-menus…things should (hopefully) be arranged in a very straightforward and easy to “browse”  fashion.  So click and scroll to your heart’s content.   I’m excited to share that this very month of May is our birthday here.  MaryBalda.com has been up and running for 7 years now!!! Hard to believe, yet amazing to think of how far we’ve come and the many iterations in color, content and overall appearance the website has taken. I’m proud to say that art is of top priority and now that we have a blog (!), I can share much of my process, inspiration, events, and exhibitions…and of course, being the avid thrifter that I am… you may also discover tidbits of weekend excursions to flea markets,  junk shops, and small beach towns here on the Central Coast.  And with that  said, I leave you with this amazing diorama found in the quaint yet colorful town of  San Luis Obispo.
