Sunny Vacation

 It's been a bit since I've updated. Here is the new work I've added to my shop this month. This should be it for the rest of the month. I'm taking a vacation! I'm pretty excited to have time to relax and just focus on painting. As much as I love printing, packing, and shipping artwork to my lovely customers, it will be nice to have my full attention on creating. I plan to make more illustrations and try some new things. My hope is to be back with lots of new original paintings!
I'll check in with photo updates.

Hope the sun is shining, where ever you are!

A few new paintings in the shop. 
I've been loving painting owl. They're so mystical, one of my favorite creatures.

Weekend Feathers

Amethyst Feathers 12"x16"
Anna Feathers 9x12
Mila Feathers 5x7
 Here are some paintings I finished this weekend. They've been sold, but I now have archival prints available in my shop! I had fun with the patterns and used some that I've been playing with in my animal illustrations. I really loved working on the Amethyst Feathers. They were inspired by the two gemstones pictured. The painting is 12"x16", the largest feathers I've painted so far. I think I'll be making more. I'll also be adding more feather paintings in sets of three.
The Anna Feathers I painted specially for my studio. I've been decorating with that color combo in mind, so I'll be hanging a large print on my wall. 
Other than that, I finally figured out a few settings on my camera! The last pic (Mila Feathers) is before, and the others are after I fixed the light setting. Basic stuff, I know. I just haven't had time to read the instructions. But really, I could have saved myself a ton of time from photo editing!
