postheadericon Birds, Foxes and Creatures, Oh My! … and more!

Let’s catch up!  Grab your coffee/tea/beverage of choice, and curl up around the old computer screen.

Seen the Gallery page lately? It’s changed a bit. You can now order prints (paper and canvas…metal and other options coming soon), greeting cards, and e-cards right from my website from Fotomoto.  You need another reason why this will rock your socks off?  Previously unavailable illustrations and paintings are now available in print!  Of course, there is and will continue to be a great selection that you won’t find elsewhere, in my Etsy shop.

Speaking of greeting cards, I have some that will soon be offered solely in my Etsy shop next week.  Here’s a sneak peek…

New line of greeting cards

I’m also working on some new holiday designs that will hopefully be available in the coming weeks!  The greeting cards (including envelopes) will retail at $3.50/ each.

Also in the works… more Lolee Bird Ornaments and some other little special woodland friends!  Last night, as I finished up another bird ornament, I couldn’t get this cute little fox sculpture I had in mind out of my head.  So, instead of making a dozen birds last night, I ventured deeper into the forest.  I must say that I am pleasantly pleased with the outcome of my little foxy friend, a scarf sporting owl, a whimsical holiday tree, and even another style of bird.  Here’s  a peek at the sculptures as I wait patiently for them to dry before I get to slather on the paint!

New sculptures for the Holidays!

And creatures!  I did mention something about creatures. Well, creature, singular rather.  I don’t know if you recall the art creature creation, as it has been eons since I posted about it, but over the summer, me and some fellow artist friends started a trans-continental collaboration that began in England, ventured to Scotland, made it’s way around the Netherlands, journeyed to Oregon, then land at my doorstep in Savannah.  Well, due to our impromptu move and the craziness that pursued, the creature finally was unpacked and finished in my new studio in Asheville.

Though I REALLY am dying to share my contribution to the project, and especially the entire project as whole, since it looks so neat, I am not at liberty at this time to do so.  But in the meantime, do check out the Art School Grad Blog, where you can see the talented artists’ contributions and read their bios.  I’m hoping to do a little Meet the Creature Artists Artist du Jour interview style in the next few weeks.

But in the meantime, be sure to check out: Brienna Pruce, Yvonne Stewart, Louise van Terheijden, Suzy Brown, and Cindy Martin!

Ok, since I teased you with the creature, I’ll share with you my studio!  Mind, it is still in progress, but at least it is a workable space no longer piled high with boxes of random stuff!  And actually, it is a bit more together since these photos, I’m just being lazy and haven’t taken any new shots, but you get the gist!

And the hubs was nice enough to locate this bookshelf at a yard sale, slap on a few coats of spray paint, and then some lovely little stencils.  It’s now in my studio, but like I said, lazy today.


Oh, and another exciting tidbit!  Just had the Young Maya illustration printed on canvas, which you can find here.  It’s pretty neat to see my illustration on canvas!  Also, I have some new prints of the illustration on Somerset Velvet paper, which will be available soon in my Etsy shop.

Well, folks, that’s all I have to share for them moment.  And I’m feeling it’s time to break fast, as my tummy is a rumbling.  But now worries, I’ll be posting again a lot sooner then later.   I can’t wait to share with you the new woodland friends sculptures once completed!
