I’m so excited to finally have the Live Oak Tree Prints for sale. They’re available in three different treatments, Icy Blue and Moss Green hand watercolored prints, and archival black prints on Natural paper.  All are hand-signed, and though they are listed at 5×7 inches, I can certainly print 8×10’s or even 11×14’s should you fancy a larger size.

and too darn cute!  I might just have to kidnap these pups one day.  (well, I might pass on Yoji since he’s on a homemade vegan diet…I can’t even cook that good for myself)

There’s something about a landscape painting that speaks a little louder than just a photograph. It can capture the mood, the atmosphere, that specific moment in time that reminds you of the day you got married, the view from your honeymoon balcony, or maybe the place where you met and fell in love….awwwwww!  Just think of the possibilities!  (and the look on your Valentine’s face when you give him/her this thoughtful reminder of fun times)  Anywho…we haven’t much time til February 14th, so be sure to book quick!  CLICK HERE for all the deets and don’t forget to spread the love!  xo

What a co-ink-y-dink!  I have spent weeks working on this portrait, to wake up and realize that today, March 5th, it is complete.  Perfect timing, as today is Lee Anne (my little mermaid’s) birthday.  There’s a story here, and for those of you lucky enough to know Lee Anne, you know where it begins.  Lee Anne, my step-mother, has been living with Huntington’s Disease for the past 10 years.  Never heard of Huntington’s Disease?   CLICK HERE.

Lee Anne is such an inspiration to all who meet her.  She fights her battle with an outpouring of love, an endless supply of hope, and a smile so infectious it can light up a room…( it’s hard to miss her trademark ruby red lipstick!)  I can’t think of any better way to wish her a happy birthday, than to unveil her portrait, and to offer it up as a charitable print.  (That is, of course, if you approve Lee)  You can purchase your print by visiting my HeatherLYoung Etsy Shop and know that the proceeds will help find a cure for this debilitating disease.  Spread the word!

A Happy St. Valentine’s Day to you all!  This year I didn’t have time to illustrate a “Vayda-tine” but I did manage whip out the old x-acto and some scrap paper. Please take no offense, should you not receive one…I only made 3…maybe next year I’ll get back on the band-wagon…
