I know–I’ve taken my sweet time getting this painting into print form and up for sale. Now that Shark Week 2014 has come and gone, I figured I’d better get moving: shark week fans may be feeling a little empty, and 30 Rock fans will just appreciate this reminder of Tracy Jordan’s #1 life tip!
I’ve lost count of how many times people have asked about purchasing this painting as a print, so order away my friends!
Been eyeing anything on Great.ly lately? Good timing, because they are offering free shipping this week! Check out boutiques curated by Design Crush, Glitter Guide, the Jealous Curator and others to shop my prints!
Introducing more new products on Etsy! I’ve made some additions to my collection of southwestern floral pieces–the most popular line in my shop now includes two postcards perfect for sending a friend a quick, informal note. You can purchase a set of five in either “Hello.” or “So, how’ve you been?” via Etsy!
My southwestern inspired floral collection of prints and stationery has always been my most popular line, and the thank you cards in particular have received some attention lately (much to my delight). Blogshop asked me to provide sets of the note cards for their Los Angeles workshop gift bags. Designlovefest was the first design blog I read, before I even started my own career in art and design, so Bri Emery including my work in the Blogshop goodie bags was a pretty exciting milestone. Even better, Style Me Pretty Living published a behind-the-scenes feature on LA Blogshop along with a photo of the gift bag contents. With all the love for my floral stationery floating around the internet these days, it seemed like it was time to add to the family with some new flowery cards!
With my work calming down–at least a little–this weekend, I managed to squeeze in some relaxation time. Hello, Fringe marathons, evening runs, and watercolor supplies. Grocery stores really sell apples short, as a fruit, and a quick glance at the produce section would leave you with no idea how beautiful apples can be. There are hundreds of varieties, all with different flavors and even colors–for instance, some apples are pink inside like the ones I’m painting. Some are dark red. Why isn’t Trader Joe’s stocking prettier apples? I can’t be the only one who makes food choices based on aesthetics.
Apologies for my recent silence — I’ve been buried in work and out of town. We’ll see if I can manage to post here more regularly this week! I have made time to update the shop a bit, and the new additions include this lovely photo and the pineapple study I created for Studio DIY a few weeks ago.
I was going to post a diagram of how to tie a magic knot today, but I painted it and it turns out there’s not really a way to make a shoe-tying diagram look good in watercolor. Or, I haven’t found it, anyway. So here’s some ice cream instead!
