right on target…

February 16, 2009

Maybe I’m speaking too soon…but sometimes things seem to align just right.  I’ve only got two coats of oil wash, but already the color is just as I had planned.

In other news, talented artista and web promo maven,  Robin Lynne, has got me all wrapped up in a new site.  Made By Hand. BY ME, is a free place to promote your wares and network with other artists.  The site even offers a “spotlight” feature similar to etsy’s treasury concept, except that I don’t have to do math for three hours to find out when one will become available.  It’s a fresh site on the scene, with real potential to grow.  If you’re looking to reach a broader market and like free promo, CHECK IT OUT!

Tis the season!

December 2, 2008

For scattered blog posts, shop shop shopping, and the best arts and crafts projects of the year.  I spent some time with my little apprentices this past weekend, and they conjured up some imaginative garland for their holiday decor.

Caty Greene that is…

She’s worth reading about..(click!)…especially for all you Savannah folk.

Took me a little longer to pull this one together…it’s hard to put a face to someone who was so overlooked by history…I hope I did her justice.

works in progress…

July 2, 2008

19 small green things…(almost complete)

2 portraits

a website

birth announcement

conceptual sketches for a new mural

I am quite sure this list is not complete.  I’ve been a bit all over the place as of late, but good things…definitely good things.  A few more:

Special congrats to Bekah on her new job!  Pooler Elementary, you have no idea how lucky you are to have her…If Nick and I ever have children, she will be in charge of training them, teaching them manners, and discipline…(you need only look at my spoiled dog to know that discipline is not my forte)

Oh and for all you local Savannahians, be sure to pick up the latest copy of Savannah Magazine Robin Lynne’s work has been featured!

I’ll be sure to toast an extra drink to both you girls this 4th of July!
