Creating small Story Coloring Books...

       During this eventful year.. I have been teaching myself HOW to self-publish..

   So far I was able to attempt two Story Coloring Books this year.. "I Love Numbers" 

and coming very soon, "I LOVE FOOD"...   I will be listing them on my ETSY & EBAY

shops.. just type in "simbachdesign" and take it from there.... oddly enough I'm 

having trouble trying to upload any images onto this site?

others just keeping in my portfolio for later...  They are paint on 100% cotton fabric.

Marshall Gras Crawl Windows at the Arts Center

Huge paintings that fill up the entire windows on Main Street Marshall announcing the upcoming town event sponsored by the DMA... Downtown Marshall Association.
The event will take place the evening of FAT TUESDAY.. Feb. 28th 2017.  There will be a route for the crawl from one downtown establishment to the next. A total of 6 stops, each featuring a food of New Orleans. Included and beginning the route is Star Diner, then MAD Co. Brewery, then onto ZUMA, next is Good Stuff, across the street to Marshall Container Company, and ending up the block to Sweet Monkey.  Costumes are strongly encouraged.(HEY, this IS Mardi Gras after all!)
Beads and doubloons along the way. A Family Friendly Event...
     I, Lois Simbach, painted those paintings in the Arts Council Windows and, I must say, they look absolutely fantastic at night!  I back lit them and added a bit of red... I love it !!!!
    An official Marshall Gras Crawl Poster will be coming out soon, (which I also painted).

Be sure to look for it in all the windows in town.  And be sure to come "in costume" on Fat Tuesday!!
    See you there.
