Each one is a lovely, hand printed original on a Moleskine Cahier Journal. I print them one by one, layer by layer, in small batches at a time on both plain and ruled Moleskine Cahiers. And then post them to my Etsy shop. Recently I also started printing on squared Moleskine cahiers, and soon, very soon, I'll be introducing new sizes as well!


gift help.

Need help shopping handmade? Check out the Gift Guides on Etsy, they just appeared today! I'm so very excited to have my work featured there, and the added bonus is my artwork appears right beside Sean's.

[Thanks mlee for letting me know!]

Just last week, Sean and I also appeared together in the sidebar on poppytalk! One of my knit paintings is the current icon for their affordable art guide, and one of Sean's pieces was their Etsy Pick of the Day!

Lots of great news happening over this way, but I'll save the gushing for another post. I'll leave you with a screen shot of my knit paintings on Etsy, where I discovered today that I've almost got a whole page of them. I don't think I've ever had this many posted at once:
Paintings on Etsy
Some days I wish I had an Etsy shop that only featured my paintings, and then other days I love seeing all my work mixed together. And if they were separated, what would stay under shoofly, or goshdarnknit, or would I just post it under my real name? See, too many decisions to make, might be best to just keep it the way it is for now.

art whino.

Going to the Art Whino opening last month was really refreshing. For once I was at a gallery exhibit where there were so many pieces I wished I could own, and so much to be inspired by. Here are some of my favorites:

Mary Spring on the left, Scott Musgrove on the right,

and Kelly Vivanco.

See more images from the exhibit in Sean's art whino flickr set, and maybe we'll see you at the opening tonight! [Please check the Art Whino site for details!]
