color palettes for your interior decorating

I was playing around with color palettes today and came up with this one for my recent birch painting.  Then it occured to me that this might be useful for clients.  A lot of times, folks are uncertain if a piece of mine will "go" in their room.  This might be a helpful tool!

If you are interested in a certain painting of mine--send me a message and I would be happy to put together a color palette for you.  I am going to write about some other services that I offer soon--stay tuned!

Available prints!

The prints are here! 
I printed the first run yesterday and got them all framed.  Here are a few photos of them hung on my porch.  They look cute all in a row, don't you think?
They are printed on canvas with archival inks and then sealed with a protective UV spray that protects them from moisture & sun.  They are framed in these simple, natural wood frames. Size of the prints are 8x8 inches. Price is $50 each. Message or email me if you'd like to purchase one.
I will eventually list them on my Etsy shop but in the meantime I am off to Andover Art in the Park and then getting the Happy Camper ready for her debut!

This Saturday is the annual Andover Art in the Park in lovely downtown Andover, MA.

It's a great way to spend the afternoon--strolling around Central Park while enjoying the work of 70+ regional fine artists. After the show, you are within walking distance to the shops & restaurants of Andover for a bite to eat.

Find me in booth #41 (look for the giant, red poppy!)

I now offer prints!

New this show, I am offering prints for the first time. Folks have been asking for a while now and I'm finally ready to deliver. To start, I will have 8x8 inch prints on canvas using archival inks---they will be virtually indistinguishable from the originals. The prints will be framed in simple, contemporary wood frames.

YOUR input is requested!

By popular request, I am going to start offering some select prints of my work!

These will be prints on canvas using archival inks and will be virtually indistinguishable from the originals.  To start, I will be offering 8x8 inch size prints framed in a clean, contemporary frame.

I'd like to hear from you about which paintings you'd like to see offered as prints.  I'm going to start with 4 from my backyard chicken series, 4 landscapes & 4 florals.

Please leave a comment and tell me your favorite 4 chickens, landscapes & florals and why. If I've left a piece out that you think I should include, let me know!

Thank you!

Keene Art in the Park---in pictures

Ahhh, Keene! My hometown and home of my favorite show--Keene Art in the Park.  The weather was fine, the folks were friendly, and there was plenty of beautiful art from 80+ artists to admire and inspire.

Despite evidence to the contrary--I WAS actually there.  I guess my photographer (hubby) was off duty that weekend.

Wondering where I'll be next?  Check out my busy, busy fall line-up here.

You can find me next at Andover Art in the Park in Andover, MA on September 15th, booth #41.
