The Swan

Hi everyone! I have a new painting in my shop, called "The Swan." It is a 5"x7" on stretched canvas. I like how gentle these two came out looking :)

We are enjoying a nice cloudy day here with a little break from the heat! I am looking forward to a day of baking, drawing and reading in the company of my sweet fiancee :) Who could ask for more?

I hope that you are all having a nice day, and I'll see you soon!

The Garden Party

Hi everyone! I have another new painting available in the shop, this one is an 8"x10" and is called "The Garden Party." I have been wanting to do a painting with a kitty for a while (the only time I usually paint them is for commissions), and I was still in a lighthearted, party sort of mood :)

These two little friends love having impromptu tea parties out in the garden when the weather is fine! :)

I was also very excited and lucky to receive a special little gift from the lovely Kim of B.B. Bellezza...

A gorgeous and whimsical little pair of clock hand earrings!! I entered her giveaway during the Mad Tea Party and was so thrilled to have won! I can tell that I will be wearing these ones a lot! :) Make sure to check out Kim's blog here and her lovely etsy shop here, where you can also purchase your own pair of clock hand earrings! Thank you Kim!! :)

From being able to meet this way, Kim and I have also decided to do a collaboration, which I am very excited to share with you soon!

I hope that you all have a lovely weekend :)
