I've been adding new work to my shop, Honeysuckle Lane.
And if you'd like to see works in progress, follow along over at Instagram.
I really like the paintings I've done this summer...
lavender and bees,
barns and fields,
it's more like me...
of what I know...
of where I live.
I live in rural Tennessee... the Cumberland Plateau... the Southern
Appalachians... always have, always will. Fields full of wildflowers,
old barns, little country churches, and overgrown home-places are
forever in my heart. It's hard not to paint what you love, and I love
all of these and more.
Come back soon to visit. It's been to quiet around here. :)
Time seems to get away from me more and more. Spring is here and I have so much on my to-do list... and here I am still making Love Tokens! I guess they really are good for year 'round gifts. You can give someone a love token for so many reasons: a wedding, an anniversary, an engagement, an I Love You sentiment, a Best Friend gift... you see what I mean?
There were only 6 left from my first collection, and this second collection has been sold except for one. In this second collection, each valentine is displayed in an antique velvet frame.
Four of them have original 18th and 19th century French document
papers for the background. The other one has an embossed fragment
of a French document for the cuff. I love this new (old) element that has been added to them.
If you'd like to see them, please visit my Honeysuckle Lane shop. The one pictured above can be found here (it's #2 - the only one left on that page).
Hopefully, next time I'll have some spring related things to talk about! :)
