When my life gets hectic, my creative energy is the first thing to go. I'm thankful to have some time on this rainy Saturday to connect my hands and my heart to paper and paint. This is what came of it. I even added some gold leaf accents for some extra sparkle. ✨ Here in this moment, all is right with the world. I'm going to hang out here for awhile.🏡
I love getting surprises in the mail, don’t you? These fab Atlanta mugs came from @tammysmithdesign She has a wonderful line of state mugs, dish towels and prints on her website so go on over to her Instagram page and check her out. In addition to being a terrific artist, she’s also a fun person to hang out with.
After a walk in the snow this morning I needed a little spring color on my desk! Behind the scenes: art I create for Licensing is usually drawn & painted in little pieces like this, then layered out and formatted in Photoshop. The art is more versatile for various products but it requires a lot of time sitting and staring into my computer monitor. These days I’m trying to balance that out by spending more time here in my studio making things with my hands, to feed my soul and avoid burnout. After all these years I’m still learning ❤️ #onmydesktoday#artstuffstudio#artlicensing#springart#cutebirdart
