it is what it is…

In addition to the loss of my beloved RockStar Reds and Eat Your Greens series, seems my printer will no longer be able to accommodate the 8×10 size either…eeek!

While I’ve enjoyed this journey from the Southern Girl’s Cookbook, to the Taste of the Month with Skirt!, and ultimately their last hoorah at The Produce Stand, I’m thinking it’s time to move in a new direction.  Time to get back to my painting roots, and come up with a new series to keep me up at night.

Fret not, my foodie loving friends… your collections just became a  little more exclusive!  These were produced in very limited editions, so if you’ve been pondering that Fish for Dinner, now’s the time to click click buy!

I had plans…lots of them…with coordinating lists (long ones)…a treasure trove of ideas…good, solid plans.  But you know what they say, sometimes the best laid plans fail, and that is just what’s happened.

It is with great sadness, that I must announce the end of  production for my Eat Your Greens and Rockstar Reds series of canvas prints.   My printer can no longer accommodate the 6″x6″ size, and I’ve yet to find a place that can even come close to touching their price.  While I could produce them, and sell them at a higher price, it has always been  my goal to keep my work attainable…so this is it!  If you visit The Produce Stand, you’ll see there are still some to be had, and they are now of a very limited edition.  Only one of each Rockstar Red was ever created, so they are truly one-of-a-kind!

Thanks to all of you who helped support this line of work, collected these little gems, and spread the word!  I’m honored for you to have them…and who knows…maybe I’ll find a way to bring them back to life in the coming months via a different size, medium etc…(sometimes goodbye’s don’t last forever)

On to the bright side…

It’s a new year and there are new plans in the works.  I have my eye on a state of the art printer, that will allow me to print archival quality prints in-house.  The best part…I get to nurture my inner control freak, and totally eliminate the middle-man.  I’ll minimize my overhead and have the opportunity to “print-to-order,”  and you’ll see my work a little more affordable to those of you who love art but can’t quite afford the investment.  “Good Things” (as Martha would say) are on the horizon.

Bazaar recap…

November 9, 2008

The Market Bazaar was great fun.  Thanks to all of you who stopped by my tent,  picked up cards, bought a print or two, or just made conversation.   I had the opportunity to meet some super-fabulous artists, and it was especially great to finally meet Sarah and Kelly in person.  Special thanks to Nick for helping me all day…I could not have done it without you!  Thanks Marvin for letting me sit in the drivers seat of the fire truck…so cool!  Oh yeah, and thanks to Miriam and Jake for hosting an awesome event.  I think what you are doing for the community is really fantastic!  I must say though, that the real icing on the cake for me was selling Granny J’s Jello.  It happens to be one of my favorite prints, and I think it found the perfect home!  So in the spirit of Jello and all things fun.  Here’s your first peek at a complete Red Thing…

We’re certainly over the summer slump!  I ran clear out of Fountain notes the other day…(don’t worry more are on the way)…and I can’t seem to keep stock with the Savannah Prints. (it’s crazy to think that Christmas is already upon us)  Thanks to all of you who helped spread the word about my work!  Don’t forget, you can buy my Fountain Notes and Savannah Prints directly from The Ink Lab.  Or if you don’t want to “sign in” to etsy, just shoot me an email, and I’ll gladly get an invoice to ya.

Of all the Savannah Prints, this one might just be my favorite…

(well, not really…we all know that’s dangerous)…but I have whipped up some seriously delicious new prints for your modern gal’s kitchen.  “Green Things” can be mixed and matched to your heart’s content!  These charming 6×6 canvas prints can go it alone, or in a group of 3, or 9, or all 19!  Whatever suits your fancy or your wall space.  Each one is hand-signed with love by yours truly, and is named on the back.  The perfect gift for your foodie friends!  For the full line up, skip on over to The Produce Stand.

and remember…Mama always said to “Eat Your Greens”

special thanks!

I met Ann & Joe at the Gordonston Art Fair.   Just so turns out, they had a beautiful wall in their kitchen…most suitable for the new Foodie Prints

Thanks Ann & Joe for your support of my work!  I hope you love them for years to come, and send my best to Dolce.
