I have had the pleasure of working with so many Jekyll Island Club brides, that it’s about time I added this beautiful wedding venue to my collection of hand painted watercolor prints.   Each print is printed with archival quality inks onto watercolor paper, then painted and signed by yours truly.  For more information CLICK!

Self Portrait #7

June 3, 2010

if I were a material girl…a few of my favorite things.

Self Portrait No. 7 - Material Girl

1.  Gap jeans – my favorite pair.

2.  Great-Grandmother’s wedding band.  Oh how we miss her!

3.  Scarves.  This one, hand-painted in Belgium, a gift from some old friends.

4.  Flip-flops (my feet hate socks!)

5.  My Blushing Mona Lisa, a canvas print by dear friend Dana Jo.

6.  Paint brushes.  I don’t think I’ve ever thrown one out.  Too much story in them.

7.  Painting by Lee Anne. She offers the best kind of inspiration.

8.  Our wedding rings. (photo by Jade McCully)

9.  Hand-written recipe cards.

Early morning paint session today.  Adding washes to these always brings me back to summer visits at Granny J’s.  She ALWAYS had a Paint with Water book to keep me occupied.  Shame you don’t see more of those around today.

hand painted savannah watercolor prints

Want some?

My original Savannah sketches have been given a little *punch* of color!  (Sorry for the delay, but things had to be “just so” you know)  Each 8×10 print has been delicately hand watercolored by yours truly, making each one unique.  Of course, if you haven’t the space for an 8×10 and you must have a little something “Savannah,” then the Mini-Prints are for you!  They come matted ready to fit a 5×7 inch frame…(perfect for the tabletop frame) or a collection of little Savannah memories…take your pick!  You can find these little gems locally at ShopSCAD or purchase them online via TheInkLab. Enjoy!

I’m a collector of sorts.  Little odds and ends that might inspire are good to have around.  My three little apprentice girls presented me with quite the gem this weekend.

Isn’t it amazing?  I love that it is wearable art, but I must say Nick and I are tempted to frame it.  This, by the way, is only a small detail of the scarf, which measures nearly 6 feet in length.

I love the variety, the patterns, the uniqueness of each one.  I rarely wear them, but I can’t help myself from picking them up here and there.  Here’s the collection…

My favorites are vintage Vera and Liberty of London prints.  I also draw heavily from the ones with sentimental value.  And there you have it…a little eye candy for your Monday morning blues.
