What’s going on in the studio?


{acrylic in progress} I'm still trying to finish this pink explosion of ranunculus. The goal was to have it done by this past weekend but my birthday 'got in the way' so it just had to wait. It's getting there and I may have it done later this afternoon. It's feels like it's taking too long even though I haven't spent too many hours on it. I guess it's just one of those projects that feels like they'll [...]

New prints


{Mamma Mia Bedroom} I'm in the process of turning some watercolor renderings into prints right now. I finished a few editions of each room in LiveLikeYou's "Mamma Mia" interior design personality yesterday. Aren't they so adorable? These are small and more intimate prints at 4x4 inches. They are meant to draw you in, as if you are just sneaking a peak into someone's house without anyone noticing. {a 4x4 print next to my business card} They would look [...]

More beautiful studio space


I just can't help myself! Everytime I browse my favorite blogs I see spaces that just would be perfect for an art studio... How about this gorgeous porch from Material Girls! I wouldn't move! Look at all those windows, trees in the backyard and all that natural light.  My friend over at LiveLikeYou did a post on her summer house in Sweden a few months ago. It's so classic Swedish country life! I would turn this room into my art [...]

Knock Out Abuse wrap up


I attended the the 17th Annual Knock Out Abuse Against Women Annual fundraising gala in Washington, D.C. recently. What an event! I had donated my “Closed Tulip III” to the silent auction and had the honor of attending as the co-founder's, Jill Sorensen, guest! Standing next to my darling, "Closed Tulip III," which is the painting I donated to Knock Out Abuse. The proceeds of the painting went to benefit women and children of domestic abuse. (sorry for [...]

When I’m not painting…


I'm painting all day today as I'm about to finish another larger piece, but I figured it was time for a post where I show you what I do when I'm NOT painting. I hope you had a fantastic long weekend and that you're enjoying the shorter work-week. We get the long-weekends so seldom it's almost like we go into mourning once they are over. It's a little different when you're a full-time painter and can ease into [...]

What do you do when no one shows up?


What do you do when you drive through seven states to get to a show and then no one shows up? That's pretty much how the Cape Cod Fine Arts Festival went. A total bummer! I love meeting new people, engage with them and hear how they experience my art and when you've put so much into an art show and don't get it (organizing, packing, driving, painting new work, etc. etc.) it's a complete let down. Luckily [...]

Three’s Company


{Three is company: Mirja's Bridal Bouquet (24x24), Royal Bridal Bouquet (24x18) and Caroline's Bridal Bouquet (18x18)} It's not often I have three bridal bouquets in the studio at the same time, so Casey snapped this photo of before I was heading out to watch Chris Botti at Wolf Trap yesterday. I always find it helpful to see a painting next to a person or a piece of furniture you know the size of (my chair). What also is [...]
