Original Child's Pose - Free Shipping!

I've just added an original painting to my shop! She's a sweet little thing, wanting to get out into the world. I painted this version of "Child's Pose" back in 2002, when I still signed my name "elle." I will not be offering any prints of this image, so this is truly one-of-a-kind.  And free shipping right now!!

Flowers and French Curves

I thought I'd share a recent painting...   Simple flowers with stencil drawing behind them. I love using the French Curve stencil, it's so fluid and graceful.  At the same time, I love the rigidity and limitation of using only the edges of the stencil to create the shapes. The flowers are watercolor with metallic ink centers; the stencil forms are Prismacolor, and the "grid" in the back is black ink pen. I found some India Ink pens that I LOVE.  Enjoy!!

Please note that any purchases made this week will not ship until next week... because my best friend is getting married!  We are traveling back to Michigan for her big day, so I won't be able to ship until we return on the 19th.  You can be patient now, right? I'll put some pretty stamps on your package, maybe some other treats.  Thanks, y'all!!

You know what looks great? Three of anything, especially when hanging artwork. So how about 3 prints for $50?  Yay!!

Stamping good fun

I was inspired by Geninne over at Geninne's Art Blog to make some rubber stamps. I used to make these years ago- they're really simple. Just use a Mars plastic eraser and a sharp knife, and watch out for your fingers!

 I can't wait to decorate the packages I send out into the world!!!

Toddler Yoga

My son likes to do spontaneous down dogs. 
Sometimes in bed while he's supposed to be sleeping...
