Weekend Recap

May 3, 2010

Nick, Vayda and I took a trip down to Amelia Island this past weekend, where we stayed with my brother and his lovely gal, Liz.  I could not wait to meet my new nephew, Gibson…

Gibson Mutt Baby

at just 14 weeks of age, he is already the size of Vayda…just look at those big dog paws!  It should be noted, that while Vayda was tolerant of the new gangly legged pup, she was less than thrilled to see another Granddog running around her “vacation” home.   I tried in vain to get a picture of them together, but the Diva would not have it.

While there,  I also whipped up a little cursive for Dad’s kitchen wall.  “Bella Cucina” has a nice ring to it…no?I believe the translation is “Beautiful Kitchen” in Italian…

Bella Cucina Script on Kitchen Wall

A much easier task than one would think.  If you’d like the step by step tutorial, leave me a comment.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Cyber Monday Newness!

November 30, 2009

Two brand new prints for your Cyber Monday shopping list!

Originally published  by my friends over at Skirt! Magazine, I present to you Gingerbread Men in Skirts No. 1

and Gingerbread Men in Skirts No. 2

Both prints are printed with the finest archival inks onto yummy epson paper.  They measure 8×10″ with a small white border for framing.

Both of these charming little prints can be found over at The Produce Stand, and you have until the end of tomorrow to take advantage of FREE SHIPPING!

My commission schedule is also getting very full, so don’t delay if you’d like a Pet Portrait or Pen & Ink…I am very  near capacity this year, and rates will go up after Dec. 1.  Thanks to all of you who have already taken advantage of my Holiday Sale! The postman may not like me much today!

for your Friday.  At sixteen I was given $50, some paint, and a wall in my neighbor’s nursery.  Pretty bold folks if you ask me.

I must be in Australia mates!

Speaking of food…I sold three Foodie Prints yesterday!  No more Lemon Tree. I’m a little sad, as this was always a favorite, but I feel confident it will go to a nice home.  Get yours now before they are all gone!

It always makes me happy to see that my babies have found good homes.  These three made it all the way to Chicago.  Thanks Val!

I still have an Artichoke Blossom and a Fresh Herb or two…but Sweet Potato Blossom has sold out!

These two prints, went to Anna in Athens.  A happy home indeed!

Ah…Monday morning, and I’m content.  Life is good!

That’s right…the Rockstar Red series is all gone!  Things seem to be picking up this first week in Spring…so if you’ve been eyeing the Foodie Prints, better pay a visit to The Produce Stand quick!

Not much else going on around the studio…a little of this…and a little of that.   I have, however, decided to design my own wedding invitations.  I’m not sure how smart this idea is.  I’m plenty capable of designing invites…but my indecisive nature may just work against me here.   When to stop my inner control freak?

Anyhoo…wishing you all a lovely first weekend in Spring!  xo

Only 9 left in the Eat Your Greens series!  Can  you believe it?  These are of very limited edition,  some only printed once…EVER!  So get your hands on them before they’re all gone…

I think I’ll start the day off right with some green eggs and ham…Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

where did the sun go?

March 15, 2009

This is south Georgia?  We spent yesterday freezing at the Savannah Market Bazaar. Not the best turn out for the event, but it’s always great to mingle with other artists, and see old friends.  I sold my very last Fresh Carrot yesterday to a lovely couple, and Cherry Babies, the only one ever printed in the Rockstar Red series, went home with a young girl about the age of 10.  She pondered over the purchase, and I’m sure spent some time negotiating with her mom over just why she needed a Foodie Print…but it’s so inspiring to see a youth interested  in art, and not some video game…the highlight of my day, no doubt!  In general, the Foodie Prints have been feeling the love as of late…if you’d like to get your hands on one, you better click-click-buy!  There’s only 3 Rockstar Reds left!

Returned home to find my little Sublime featured in this lovely treasury…now I’m really longing for a sunny beach, 83 degrees, and a margarita..
