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!

Already Missing Shark Week?

I’ve lost count of how many times people have asked about purchasing this painting as a print, so order away my friends!

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!

New: Floral Phrases Postcards

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!

In Progress: Apple Anatomy

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.

Create Your World

Recently, I’ve found this is easier than you might expect. Of course I can’t control everything, but mindset is a big deal — it’s sort of a magical realization, isn’t it?

This is available as an 11″ x 14″ or 8″ x 10″ unframed print via Etsy.

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!

If you want to know about the magic knot–and you should because it’s life changing–check out this instructional video.
