Small Wear

Trying something new to sell at the Eastside Artist show this year- baby onesies and T-shirts. I have 4 nature inspired, hand screen printed designs from my collection available; Prairie Boy, Prairie Girl, Night Owl and Early Bird. They're also on my Etsy site. Nice, 100% organic cotton fabric, too.

Still autumn out there, still time to enjoy tea outside. Still life of an autumn tea...

Harvest Farm and Preserve

This is a small piece I did last month when I was a visiting artist at a nature preserve located not that far from my house (Harvest Farm and Nature Preserve). There were other artists there, working en plein air- outdoors! I set up in a leafy, wooded area called "Whitman's Glade" and commenced to create a little botanical from leaves and things I found around me. Then people walked through and talked with me as I worked. At least that was the plan. I've never worked in public liked this, so scratching and talking at the same time was challenging! In fact, I talked much more than I scratched! So, the piece is quite small, but representative of the essence of that lovely October day.
