Greetings! I haven’t touched a brush in 20 years. A bit underwhelming, I’m sure.
Under all the grill grease and beer foam still thumps the heart of a painter. I’ll be cooking during the Artwalk, and I’ve got plenty of paintings to display, so I figured why not?
Please be aware… if you pull my string I might not shut up about all that artsy nonsense.
If you can make the walk I’ll have some masterpieces to witness down at Greek’s 205. Oh, and officially I have a BFA in painting from the University of Louisiana.

Candy Hahn is a mosaic artist, based in Port Lavaca, Texas, who began creating mixed-media mosaic artwork in 2009. Candy explains her work, “Mosaics and mixed-media mosaics are my niche. I love taking things we see as broken, such as shards of glass and tile along with found or discarded items, and bringing them to life in beautiful new forms. We do the same thing in our lives, and mosaics are the perfect medium for us to visualize the beauty that can come from imperfection.” Candy specializes in using photographs as models to translate images into custom mosaic projects.
Candy’s artwork was recently highlighted in a Mosaic Art blog titled, “Composition and Correcting the Model,” by Joe Moormon, artist.
A blog containing photographs of Candy’s work can be found at bothr.net, on FaceBook @ Smidgen & Shard, LLC, and her creations are available in her Etsy shop, SmidgenAndShard. https://www.etsy.com/shop/SmidgenAndShard?ref=search_shop_redirect
Candy’s pieces are currently on display at the Bee Cave Arts Foundation gallery, The Hive, Austin, Texas, as well as the CMA2 “All Mixed Up!” virtual exhibit. She was also a featured artist during the Art at the Bend exhibit, November of 2022.
