Lover’s Oak is located in historic Brunswick, GA, and is thought to be over 900 years old! Legend has it that Native American lovers would meet under its magnificent branches to kiss.  The trunk alone measures 13 feet in diameter.  So beautiful!

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

A Happy St. Valentine’s Day to you all!  This year I didn’t have time to illustrate a “Vayda-tine” but I did manage whip out the old x-acto and some scrap paper. Please take no offense, should you not receive one…I only made 3…maybe next year I’ll get back on the band-wagon…

I’ve been on a real peacock kick lately…thinking maybe it would make a good motif for our wedding…hmmm

pondering…

my 08 Christmas card.  Of course, Ms. Vayda will be front and center…(click here to see last year’s…)  any ideas?  I’m not opposed to the block print style of of the Vayda Valentine either.

A few weeks ago my father paid a visit, and something he said just stuck with me…”you’ve got to have balance”…this of course, was after he heard the debate Nick and I had been having over the house. According to Nick…(and he is absolutely right…) I get on a train of thought, or all focused on an art project and my tunnel vision allows me to neglect things like…keeping up the house…or spending time with my friends…etc.

So I’ve been on this quest for balance…last week I had art camp with Bekah and killed two birds with one stone…art for fun and not for work, and spending time with a friend who I hadn’t seen since before Christmas…(this said, she lives less than a mile away from me…)

I’ve scheduled a night out with Cima…haven’t had one of those in an eternity…and this weekend is Granny’s birthday…so what better excuse to escape to the River for a few days…

But back to balance…how then do I fit in 5 pen & inks…design a mural for a nursery…2 logo designs…and launch my new product?…(which by the way, is a new line of canvas prints of my work…22 total…and I’m soooo excited about it hitting the market, I can’t sleep at night)…seems to me, it would make more sense to lock myself in my studio and chip away at this list before I ventured out to the River for family time…or over to Bekah’s for art camp. Balance Balance Balance.

Spoke with my father again last night, and told him about this quest of mine…and he replied…”after all, you are a virgo”…does that mean I’m doomed to never find this thing called balance? I’m open to suggestions…and while you’re pondering some brilliant advice…(and I’m all ears)…here’s an updated Akita Rescue logo…

Even though it would be a little more work…I think this image would be killer as a block print…(the same process as the Vayda-Valentine…)

today i give to you…

THE official Vayda-Valentine! I got some crafty time in with Bekah on Sunday, and decided to do some good old fashioned print-making. It was quite therapeutic to carve my little block…and while I could have laced them with all sorts of “extra” Valentine’s Day adornments…I liked the “ruff” quality and uniqueness of each hand-pulled print. Hope you all have tons of love this Valentine’s Day!  Hugs from me and my rotten dog.
