A custom pen & ink drawing of a home or garden makes for a very special gift. I still have time to ink a few drawings out before Christmas, but if you’re interested, please book soon.  Remember, if you commission a drawing of an old family home, we can make archival quality prints for the whole family, and with a few quick edits to the original drawing, an elegant holiday card can be fashioned…(see below)

Remember if you miss the cut-off date, I can always issue an attractive gift certificate that would be good for anything in theinklab.  Please email heather@flyoungstudio.com to get on the list – or commission directly from my etsy shop.

Tomorrow is the last day to get your custom pet portraits commissioned in time for Christmas.  If you miss the deadline, I’m happy to issue a gift certificate to redeem after the dust settles a bit.  Hope you’re all enjoying the festive season so far!

The sweetest bride commissioned the original sketch of this charming church in St. Francisville, Louisiana. I’ve absolutely fallen in love with the structure, the stained glass, and the azaleas… maybe one day I’ll get to visit!  Our Lady of Mount Carmel Hand Watercolored and Signed Prints are now available in TheInkLab!

I love this time of year!  I get to work in all my favorite mediums, reconnect with old clients, and meet lots of new ones.  Very content with the way this house turned out, and happy I can show it to you since the gift has already been given…

Hope you’re all enjoying the hustle and bustle of the season!  Hugs~

It’s the perfect day to head to the beach!  If you plan on hitting up Tybee, be sure to stop by Gayle Bolton’s Gallery by the Sea at 1016 Hwy. 80 E.  She’ll be hosting a Garden Party complete with wine, lemonade, and “Mater” Sandwiches!  Artist, Stephanie Dwyer, will be there with her latest bottle trees.  Take a moment to peek inside as there’s lots of new artist work to be had (including some new works by yours truly)  Perfect place for that last minute Mother’s Day gift!  As you get on Tybee, look for Gallery by the Sea on the right side of the road…get lost, call 912-786-7979.  Have a super fabulous weekend!

Last year he got this one…(the original, of course)…this year a little something to remind him of his 3 months in Central America.

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

Schedule Booking Fast!

December 2, 2009

Thanks to all of you who took advantage of my weekend sales.  Would you believe it?  It’s only Dec. 2nd and I can no longer accept Pet Portrait commissions!  If I’ve just broken your heart, no worries!  I can still issue you a super cute gift certificate, good for one year, from Vayda’s Pet Shop.

I still have time to squeeze in a few custom Pen & Inks, but better book quick!

Of course, I have plenty of reasonably priced prints for the Foodie on your list…and a full line of Savannah Prints and Notes…(a good thing to have on hand for that unexpected neighbor that drops by with a surprise gift)

Hope y’all are having the best Holiday Season ever!  Oh and please remember to support your local artists and the hand-made movement.  xo
