Love love love this sweet face!  Did I mention, Boz’s Mama is a super talented photog in Savannah?

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!

Delicately washed watercolor prints of Savannah’s Harper Fowlkes House are finally up for sale in the The Ink Lab!  Each print has slight variations that make it unique, comes hand signed and matted.  If you ever get a chance to visit Savannah, I highly recommend taking a tour of this beauty. From the exterior to the interior to the lush garden, this house embodies Savannah’s grace and charm!

Atlanta House Portrait

October 6, 2012

I absolutely LOVED drawing this house, so much charm!  While I’ve never met the owner in person, she’s been such a gem to work with, I feel like I’ve known her for years.

*Just a little reminder  – my holiday schedule fills fast! If you’d like to commission a custom pen & ink drawing, the sooner the better! Oh and Happy Fall!

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!

I love it when a customer commissions a custom pen and ink drawing and gives me a little back-story, history, or memory about the property.  The slatted windows, the barn built by hand out back, the crooked little sidewalk…this house was loved.

so much so, that they couldn’t decide between black and white and color, so I made a hand-watercolored print in addition to the original sketch…

Ahhhh…red doors!  I ADORE red doors!!!  (though I doubt if my homeowners association would approve)

If you’d  like to commission a drawing of your old family home, (and with the Holidays approaching, now is an excellent time), remember that I can make inexpensive archival-quality prints of Grandma’s house for the whole family….large or small, hand-watercolored or black and white, lots of options to choose from!

 

I’m in the midst of one of those transitional times in life, and when these times come, there is no better way to clear my head than to spend a day out on the boat with Granny.

Elway Pug Portrait by Heather L. Young

8×10″ Acrylic & Oil Wash on Illustration Board

Ahhh…felt so good to have my hands in paint for a few days…now back to ink work.

If you’d like your own custom pet portrait, now would be a good time to book before the holiday madness ensues.  (Seriously, where has this year gone?!)

I fought this painting until the bitter end, but the look on my husband’s face said it all.  Thankfully, my second attempt is proving fruitful.
