…it’s what keeps me interested in pen & ink work.  After all, it’s the little things that make a house a home, right?

It’s not too often I get asked to do a pencil sketch vs. a pen & ink. However, the owner of this home, had two other pencil sketches of previous residences, and wanted to keep this one with the same feel.  It turned out lovely, and even reproduced well on Crane Stationery.  Don’t forget, if you’ve had an ink done by me in the past, you can now have your drawing reproduced on stunning Crane Stationery by my friends at Turtle Creek!

Such a thoughtful gift for their parents.  Congrats Newlyweds, and super thanks for giving me such a unique house to draw!

Somewhere in New Jersey, if my memory serves me correct…

Holiday Recap

January 2, 2010

Hey everybody!  We’re back from the “North Pole.” While we enjoyed our white Christmas,  it’s good to be back in the warm South…(even if we did bring a few sneezes and sniffles home with us)

Nick’s home in the summer vs. Nick’s home in the winter…

and no, I did not shovel one bit of that snow, nor did I make a snow angel…

but I did take a chilly walk through the forest preserve to capture some snowy pics.

I’m thinking a new painting or two is in order…in fact, that is part of my New Year’s Resolution…find more time to paint for me.

Hope you all had a lovely Holiday Season with friends and loved ones…tomorrow I start posting all the fabulous Christmas commissions I’ve kept under wraps for so long…so be sure to stop by…and a very Happy New Year to you all!

hugs ~ h

Schedule Booking Fast!

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

Tis the Season!
