The Holidays are right around the corner!  Now’s the time to get your custom pen & ink drawing started, and for a little incentive, I’ve dropped the price from $250 to $200!  So commission that ink, and use the extra $50 to order 50 fabulously matching note cards!

Here’s how the process works:

1.  I start with a photograph.  You can supply a photo of your old family home, your cousins house in Wyoming, or if you’re local to Savannah, I prefer to take my own shots.

2.  I draw up a pencil sketch for your approval.  You tell me if I’ve missed that ever-so-unique weather-vane, or little detail that makes your house a home.

3.  We make any final adjustments, and then it’s time to play with ink.  Your final image is an 11×14 inch drawing with archival ink, and comes with a black mat and a sassy pinwheel bow.

4.  Last, but certainly  not least, for a $1 per note,  you can have your house printed on fine Crane Stationery from my friends at Turtle Creek.  Perfect for that “anytime” note!

I’ve even had small prints made of the old family home, so that everyone in the family can have a memory of that special place!  The possibilities are endless!

So take advantage of that low rate, and availability…(last year my schedule booked up pretty fast)…and commission your ink today!  You can do so easily via The Ink Lab, or if you’d rather not have to “sign in” to etsy, then just shoot me an email at Heather@FLYoungStudio.com and I’ll send you an invoice.

Thanks for stopping by!

doors…

October 30, 2008

Once in a while, they must be painted.  It’s been a long time since I last painted a door, beveled edges and all.  I believe this was the last one, painted nearly 4 1/2 years ago.

My new canvas will require a bit more detail.  Here’e your first peek…

I’d spill some more, but I’m itching to get out of this studio and get my hands in paint!  Have a lovely Thursday!

at it again…

October 29, 2008

Little white squares of paper everywhere!

Ah but there’s so much more to do!…a new batch of Savannah Fountain Notes are set to arrive today, and like a breath of fresh air, I get to start work on my new mural!!! Oh have I been itching to get out of this studio…

Yikes!

Some days I don’t know where the hours go?  This time of year seems to move so fast!  Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to take advantage of the SALE at The Produce Stand.  So be sure to EAT YOUR GREENS! In other exciting etsy news, I’d like to introduce you to Coastal Gems. My Granny…(the one I so affectionately named this painting after), and her dear friend Teena have opened shop on Etsy!  They’re selling some fabulous jewels, ornaments, and adornments inspired by the sea, and I hope you’ll all take a moment to show their shop some love.

…all the photos from the Pirate’s House mural.  I must say, this one sure is hard to photograph, so the next time you’re floating around downtown, drop by to see it.  Just tell them you’d like to take a peek at Captain Flint’s Hall, and they’ll give you the tour.  Enjoy!

Oh yeah, and Mr. UPS is due to drop off some yummy new paints for my next mural today!  I can’t wait to get out of this studio and on location again.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

7 things and a disconnect…

October 25, 2008

I know, I know…my posts have been a bit scattered.  Truth be told, life is a bit overwhelming as of late, and when it gets to feeling that way, sometimes I feel it’s best to “disconnect” from the information super-highway, and focus on more tangible things…know what I mean?  Anywho, Nick and I have taken some time to hunt for wedding locals, and it’s great to do so with a clear head.  I hope all you loyal blog readers understand!  I’ll be back in a few days with some great art related post…but until then…I’m stealing the following idea from this lady and her clever blog:

List 7 facts about yourself or your blog:

1.  I love ranch dressing and will visit restaurants for no good reason other than they have stellar ranch.

2.  I have two of these just like in the cartoons…(probably could have landed me a job in the circus)

3.  I attended 10 different schools in 5 different states before I graduated  high school…

4.  I am totally OCD about lists…(but you loyal folks knew that already)

5.  I taught art for two years to elementary / middle school students.

6.  I had a moment of clarity in the 10th grade…I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life, how I wanted to get there, and what ways to facilitate it.  Most days I consider this a blessing, some days I consider it a curse.

7.  I drink champagne for no good reason.

hot items!

October 22, 2008

We’re certainly over the summer slump!  I ran clear out of Fountain notes the other day…(don’t worry more are on the way)…and I can’t seem to keep stock with the Savannah Prints. (it’s crazy to think that Christmas is already upon us)  Thanks to all of you who helped spread the word about my work!  Don’t forget, you can buy my Fountain Notes and Savannah Prints directly from The Ink Lab.  Or if you don’t want to “sign in” to etsy, just shoot me an email, and I’ll gladly get an invoice to ya.

Of all the Savannah Prints, this one might just be my favorite…
