New Print Too!

I have these in a variety of color combos and can't wait to get them all photographed. So far this is the best photo. I have this new canvas paper that I am officially in love with. It holds up to my process and feels nice and thick. I only have a few sheets left... I just might need to stop off at the art store this weekend!!

Two paintings in one week! Also in my etsy shop. click me

Starry Eyed Golden Painting

I have a new painting in my etsy shop. Am I the only one or is it ridiculously hard to capture gold paint in a photograph?

This one is 10x10 inches on canvas board.

Oh Yokoo...

Why must you torture me with your awesomely knitted scarves. Which do I want more, the Pembroke or the Mothership? Hmmmm... I guess the Pembroke. No wait! The Mothership... No, Pembroke. Pembroke it is.

They come in other colors, but I'm digging the sweet pea green.

I know I'm not the only one who likes Yokoo's work. She's been featured in popular magazines and has become quite a success. You can check out her etsy shop here: click to see her shop

The Mothership

The Pembroke Cowl
Note to my family: Nudge and a wink... don't forget May 16th ;) !

Easter in the Park

On Sunday I spent part of the day venturing over to the Botanical Gardens in Tilden Park. I am so lucky to be living only 3 miles away from such loveliness! If only I had a car so I could get there more often!

When I think of botanical gardens, my mind immediately goes to Ringwood, NJ. I love the park there, and it's very different than the one in Tilden Park. But Tilden has a wonderful charm and is quite magical! I thought I would share a few of the pictures I took while I was there. The garden is still a bit bare from the winter. I look forward to seeing it again in a month or two!

Back to work...

I have a new temporary job and have not found any time to do artwork. In time Im sure a routine will develop... *sigh* ...I can't wait until the weekend when I can devote all my time to artwork. Almost there!

Here is a pic of one of my latest linocuts. I haven't had a chance yet to do this one up in various colors. Hopefully this weekend.

And here is a pic I took of the Bay Bridge with my phone, its just around the corner from my job and a great place to eat my lunch!

I've been wanting this...

I love hats and I have been wanting this cloche for ages. It's been a favorite of mine for quite some time.

My birthday is coming up in May...

The designer is Liza Rietz and she is from Portland, OR. Her etsy shop can be found here: click me click me

I'm pretty sure I like the brown linen the best. And this is the link to the hat pictured above: brown linen cloche w/ extra pics
