This just about sums up my tardiness, and brings an end to the series.

110 wedding invites to delicately piece together.  Prints to package and ship.  I’ve been right here…a lot…but no complaints.  It’s a happy place.

Studio Overhaul…

February 22, 2010

After living here for the last 8 months or so, It’s about time I got this studio in working order…Bulletin boards and calendars are pretty well useless if not hanging on the walls.  So this weekend, I painted the studio a fresh February Frost color.  Something punchy to get me motivated.  Here’s a sneak peek…I still have a long way to go, but I think my Blushing Mona will fit right in.

Oh and don’t forget!  Today is the LAST DAY for 1/2 Price Kitty Portraits!

Wishing you all a lovely Monday ~ xo

It’s here! It’s here!

February 11, 2010

Quicker than I thought even…Did you see it? We hope you’ll enjoy the layout…I’m most excited that you can now view the murals full screen (it did them no justice to have them at 400 px wide, when some are 24 feet  in real life)…Oh and speaking of which, we finally added my Anne Bonny Mural to the site.  Now that it’s all rolled out, I owe Nick about 1000 sketches, so it’s time to get back to work…but in case you’ve forgotten the old layout…here are some before and after shots..

Before on the left…after on the right…

Patience is key…

February 10, 2010

Did I mention I’ve been waiting?…waiting for my newly designed, expertly re-organized, new website to début!  It’s been such a process to rework it all…(and I really shouldn’t complain, because Nick’s done all the real work)…but I’m losing patience, and right now, that is key…see, I like things polished…but that takes some time to make sure all the last little details are in place…so excuse me if you will from this little blog for the next day or two…I ask that you, too, be patient…and know that when the new site debuts, there will be some pretty sweet deals to go along with it…I can barely contain my excitement!!!  Oh and have a lovely Wednesday.

I’m alive…

and doing quite well, thanks to many of you who have spread the word about my work, and kept me working like mad this Holiday Season.  I sooooo cannot wait until after Christmas when I can finally debut all the Pet Portraits, and Custom Inks that have come my way…I even picked up a charcoal drawing on a whim, and rather enjoyed getting back to my  roots for a few days.  Things are starting to wind down, only 1/2 a sketch left to complete, and then it’s time to focus on family, friends, and all the things I’ve missed so dearly during these hectic few months.  Oh and I managed to squeeze in a little time to whip up a Vayda Christmas card!  Although, I’ll wait just a few more days before posting, to ensure a proper surprise to many by snail-mail.

Anyhoo, just checking in!  Hugs~

Mystery Pet Portrait

November 20, 2009

Tis the season for custom Pet Portraits and Pen & Inks! I love the hustle and bustle this time of year, the steady stream of work in the studio, the variety of subject matter, reuniting with old clients, and meeting new ones…it’s an exciting time…the only downside, is having to keep everything top-secret until after Christmas…so here’s a sneak peek of a mystery pup in progress…don’t you just love that patterned paper?   …and those giant ears!

P.S. I still have time for more Christmas commissions!  Email heather@FLYoungStudio.com for a quote and time estimate.

pondering

it’s a fine line between under and over-working.  A bit strange to see these old works with a pinch of color.
