this and that…

March 25, 2009

Today I’ll be shipping Mary & Caty to their new home in Texas.  I’m quite sure they’ll like it there.

And for a little bit of news from Studio North…Nick’s finally wrapped the CSM Paper site.  Take a peek…

Not bad eh?  Spread the word to your small business friends!  Great design and a functional website don’t have to break the bank…and trust me, we know how hard it is to be a small business in this economy…

Well, better warm up that printer, and get some cardio in this morning.  Happy Wednesday!

she’s finally dry…

Caty Greene that is…

She’s worth reading about..(click!)…especially for all you Savannah folk.

Took me a little longer to pull this one together…it’s hard to put a face to someone who was so overlooked by history…I hope I did her justice.

Caty / Mary update…

July 20, 2008

It’s been a long time coming on these two portraits.  Mary (on the right) is still quite undeveloped, Caty (on the left) is approaching the “over-worked” line…it’s a delicate balance, and thus I haven’t pushed.  I’ll work on them for a few hours, then come back to them the next day.  (Which is also, a lovely way to work with oils, as it allows the previous layer  time to dry.)

I’ll be so thrilled to finally peel the tape off of these two…maybe tomorrow?

On another note, don’t forget that today is the last day to enter my Blog-A-Versary Give-A-Way!

works in progress…

19 small green things…(almost complete)

2 portraits

a website

birth announcement

conceptual sketches for a new mural

I am quite sure this list is not complete.  I’ve been a bit all over the place as of late, but good things…definitely good things.  A few more:

Special congrats to Bekah on her new job!  Pooler Elementary, you have no idea how lucky you are to have her…If Nick and I ever have children, she will be in charge of training them, teaching them manners, and discipline…(you need only look at my spoiled dog to know that discipline is not my forte)

Oh and for all you local Savannahians, be sure to pick up the latest copy of Savannah Magazine Robin Lynne’s work has been featured!

I’ll be sure to toast an extra drink to both you girls this 4th of July!
