I’m so excited to finally have the Live Oak Tree Prints for sale. They’re available in three different treatments, Icy Blue and Moss Green hand watercolored prints, and archival black prints on Natural paper.  All are hand-signed, and though they are listed at 5×7 inches, I can certainly print 8×10’s or even 11×14’s should you fancy a larger size.

Spending Labor Day applying various washes of color to my latest live oak sketches.  All these experiments, but something tells me, I’ll come back to classic black & white…

I’m not 100% sure where I’m going with this series, other than it’s in my blood to draw Live Oaks at the moment.  Sometimes it’s best not to force an idea…let the drawing hand do the thinkin’.

The years have been far better to the tree than to the structure for which it was  named.

Secret Valentine #2

February 18, 2010

It’s always fun to paint something that you would fancy in your own home.  It’s even more fun to paint it, knowing that it’s a special Valentine’s Day surprise.  And, as if it could possibly get any better, I got to paint it for the oh so talented Jade McCully. Trust me, her photos will be much better than my sneak peek below…but you get the idea…

Birch trees on a crisp yellow-green.  Loves it!

Etsy Love

January 30, 2010

A little something fresh and springy to brighten your rainy Saturday…thanks to Stephanie of Harlow Monroe Vintage for including my little Lemon Tree print with such fun items!  This list expires tomorrow, so if you’d like more information on any of the items CLICK today!

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
