The Best of Summer is Yet to Come!

Read on to find out what’s fresh and hot this summer season at The Abode.


August Spotlight

Featured Artist

Joe Vickers

From childhood to his present day life, Joe Vickers has always doodled with markers and pens. Drawing from his love of the sea, surf, and waves, Vickers creates eye-catching coastal landscapes. What started as waves on paper has evolved into acrylic and gouache paintings. Ditching the traditional canvas about a decade ago, Vickers decided to go big with his artwork and transformed paper images into vibrantly colored paintings on wood panels. You can find prints of his work at The Abode, as well as books, stickers, and some coasters featuring his art. Follow his artwork at and on Instagram @joevickersart

Fully Present

We often forget the preciousness of time. We can lose money and earn it again, but lost time can never come back. Time feels like it can bend, speed up, slow down, or fly by. The illusion of time feels malleable and adaptable, but time brings changes as it continues on. With distractions at our fingertips, it has become easier to lose our grip on time. Our minds can live elsewhere while time slips from our hands. Learning to pause and notice the now has become an art to master, and master it we must. Go outside and leave the distractions at home. Live in the present and take hold of the now.
