My most recent projects (for a couple different clients!) has been a departure from my usual botanical work. A challenge every once in a while is pretty nice, so it's been a fun break! Once these are finalized and released into the public wild, I'll post with links so you can see how and what they're used for.
If you don't get the Jill Bliss newsletter, let me tell you, you're missing out. My inbox fills countless times a day with health-based newsletters, but nothing is better for the spirit than the beauty that accompanies Jill's newsletter.
We have a handful of Bliss-Goods: notepads, prints and a beautiful original in C's and my bedroom. I'm so tempted to really pinch pennies (bye bye Americano addiction) and buy another original. The Fairie series is heavenly.
This is the beginning of something (a print? a pattern? a pile of paper for the recycling?). I've been walking around town, snapping photos of the elephant ears dominating the transitional landscaping. I love the ways the veins replicate natural systems, the veins create detailed patterns and maps of imaginary watery worlds.
This painting by Mabel seems to replicate the pattern in the leaves just perfectly! Maybe she'll teach me how she did it so I can use the same technique when I'm ready to add color. Or maybe I should just let her add the color?
I've added a couple new things to the shop: a small but mighty original drawing ($25) and a set of postcards (6 postcards for $10). If you get a second take a gander. I love the idea of affordable original art, as well as finding a way to keep drawing on the daily. The post cards are printed on an uncoated heavy stock and are gorgeous enough to be framed.
