Special thanks to Jody from ThePoint for including my little lemon in her Etsy Treasury.

Quite refreshing for the dead of winter, right?  To find out more about these lovely gems, CLICK!

In other exciting news, I bought the Epson!  I can’t wait to get  my hands on it…looks like it’s set to arrive on Monday…oh it will be like Christmas!  Thanks to all of you who helped steer me in that direction.

feeling torn…

January 27, 2009

Sorry to have neglected you blog lovin’ folk!  I must say, January always seems the month to tie up loose ends, attend to the real business side of things…revamping this, tweaking that, and taxes…ugh….taxes!  Oh and we bought a wii…so yeah, a little distracted to say the least.  The other missing part seems to be inspiration…since my printer is a jerk…(there I said it)…I’ve had to fore go many of my initial January plans, and search for inspiration elsewhere.  I have an idea of the direction in which I want to take things, but it hasn’t exactly beat me in the head or anything…so I’m holding out.

According to Nick, I’ve been talking up a storm in my sleep about printers…I’m still torn as to which beast to go with…which one would you go with?

Nothing makes an artist happier than seeing his / her work appreciated by other artists.  I was pleased as punch that fellow southern (though displaced) artista Victoria Bennett Beyer wanted my work in her collection…now she’s given me quite the write-up on her blog!  You must  CHECK IT OUT! (thanks Vickie!  I can’t wait to get my Glass Diamonds print)

In other news, Vayda’s working hard to raise awareness for Spay Day 2009…of course the puppy prizes are pretty enticing too…Be sure to check out her little page and place a vote…you know she’s the cutest!

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday

it is what it is…

In addition to the loss of my beloved RockStar Reds and Eat Your Greens series, seems my printer will no longer be able to accommodate the 8×10 size either…eeek!

While I’ve enjoyed this journey from the Southern Girl’s Cookbook, to the Taste of the Month with Skirt!, and ultimately their last hoorah at The Produce Stand, I’m thinking it’s time to move in a new direction.  Time to get back to my painting roots, and come up with a new series to keep me up at night.

Fret not, my foodie loving friends… your collections just became a  little more exclusive!  These were produced in very limited editions, so if you’ve been pondering that Fish for Dinner, now’s the time to click click buy!

doodle?

or character design?  Perhaps mindless drawing may be the most natural way to achieve  doodle evolution…I’m not quite sure, but I’ve enjoyed two full days of it….ahh January bliss!

feed the beast…

January 19, 2009

Yep…today’s one of those days when I  just need to throw some paint around, for no good reason other than to nurture the creative spirit that’s been tied to this computer, mountains of email and messages, wedding wedding wedding, and blah blah blah.  You get what I’m saying…right?… I’ve not got the time to explain…but should you happen to call / email / knock on my studio door…don’t be offended should I not respond…I’m just feeding the beast so to speak…I mean, it is a national holiday right?
