I have mentioned before that my absolute favorite blog is The Enchanted Home.  Tina is so incredibly talented at design, entertaining, and all around lifestyle advice.    She shares her life, her loves, her decisions and so much more, she generously features and promotes talent of all sorts, from artists to designers to other bloggers, entertaining, you name it.  One of my favorite things to do every Sunday morning is read her latest "Seven on Sunday" posts.  I have shared my paintings with Tina via Instagram, as some of them have been inspired by her beautiful pieces she carries in her shop.  I was so thrilled this last Sunday to see she had featured my paintings and was so appreciative and feeling unworthy, yet grateful!  I dont have the blogging talent or followers she has, but I want to encourage people who like my style to read her blog and visit her shop!!  here is the link!!

I also wanted to share my new landscape painting that just sold! It was special to me because I used a photo from my daughter's recent study abroad side trip to Tuscany!

and of course another blue and white vase with a little mini bouquet of roses and sunflowers! available through daily paintworks gallery or my etsy shop

Busy With Comissions

I have been avoiding blogging, I am trying to get my daughter to help me with it, but in the meantime  I have gratefully been busy with comissions, which can be challenging but very rewarding.  I am learning that communication is extremely important, and also having a knack and passion for interior design has helped me too, clients need help and advice on size, layout, colors, ect.
here are my recent custom paintings.

my shoe illustrations are still very popular so I was inspired by Jimmy choo's Fall 2015 line, just had to sketch me some Jimmy choo's !!
