Newest arrival

So excited, my custom embosser just arrived in the mail today and works great! Kudos to CustomEmbosserPro.com for your great customer service. You will find this little logo on all my giclee prints moving forward. I love little embellishments that make art pieces just a little more special. 

The 2015 Madison Park Art Walk was a success

Well the 2015 Madison Park Art Walk opening was last Friday night. The weather was beautiful and people came out early and numbers to enjoy the art and food provided by Starbucks and the local merchants. I have to say, it was an exciting event, even though I was little nervous and concerned that people would have a hard time finding my show because it was at the end of the street, not directly on Madison. But they did find the spot and traffic flowed continually all evening. Thank you to everyone who came out, friends, family and supporters of the arts. Time to start prepping for my next show.

My childhood home

Just finished this one today. Started out as a tree illustration and turned into a pretty little landscape of my childhood house and farm. Well, I left the farm out of it this time and focused on the mailbox at the end of the lane. My mom and dad still live there and I still love getting letters.
