Spring has been blooming for a little while now here in Phoenix. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous and I linger on these days when the Summer is just around the corner. All of this inspired me to create a new floral collection in watercolors. One of those pieces I used for the March Calendar.
This floral acrylics collection was inspired by two of my favorite historic artists, Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh. They each had a love of flowers and it showed in their work.
In the last few years I have developed an
obsession love with everything English, I think the term is Anglophile. I love watching old, black and white Sherlock Holmes movies, reading Agatha Christie books, collecting English china and linens, and of course drinking tea. It’s not tea time everyday, but most days it is and thanks to You Tube, I’ve learned how to make a proper cup of tea. So, you can bet that love is going to show up in my art…
The day of Love, St. Valentine’s Day, is just around the corner and I’ve been busy creating some artwork in it’s honor. My Shabby Valentine is the collection I’ve created. It’s soft and lovely and everything pretty if I do say so myself.
It’s Summer time and that means time to start preparing for a new Fall Show Season. Part of that entails doing some clearance of my inventory and making room for new designs. I have a small inventory of cotton canvas prints that I will be discontinuing and I’ve reduced them to wholesale prices!
Hello friends! I have a new obsession in my gardening life, succulents! I love their diversity and ease of care. I use them outside in my garden, in pots on my patio and indoors also. Today I’m sharing with you how I updated an old terra cotta pot with some chalky finish paint, a stencil and some soft pastel succulents.
Today’s project was created for Bella Crafts Publishing, so hop on over to their blog and see all the details.
Did you know that April is National Gardening Month? Well it is and after a long Winter, it feels great to get outside and get my hands dirty. Although the Winters here in Arizona aren’t very harsh at all, people love to garden here and for me it’s not just flowers that I like to add to my garden. Adding some whimsical garden art is a wonderful way to bring even more color and fun to your garden.
One of my favorite decorating techniques is creating gallery walls that tell a story. I have several vignettes around my home that are all different, but each one has a theme and look that are unique. You can easily create them with the artwork and collectibles that you already have also. I’ve compiled some truly awesome gallery walls to inspire you and I’m also sharing some from my own home.
