Artwork in the Studio

Often, people ask me how it is best to
frame watercolor prints. 
(It really depends upon your own preferences)

This image is "Bumble Bee Tea"
an Original Watercolor Painting.
It is displayed in a 7 X 7 inch opening, square format, matted in a creamy white 12 X 12 mat with a thin Periwinkle Border
A 1930's thin vintage style frame was used to not compete with the delicate art.

UV glass helps to help protect watercolor artwork.

Christmas Morning Joy Cards!

You asked, we listened...
Christmas Morning Joy!

Originally, this card was designed with a bright red border. Many people remarked (on my blog and in emails) about how much more they preferred the white border in the original rough.   One woman suggested "The white border shows off the sensitive watercolor look of the card, lending a more charming look and feel".  Another woman said she liked both borders.  The red one is "eye catching, bright and bold".  But, she also tended to prefer the white one for a different look, a softer and warmer feel. 
Several people mentioned the white helped the watercolor detail stand out better and look fresher.

After careful consideration, and after reviewing comments... I have to say I totally agree!   Fortunately, I was able to change the border to white.  With fingers and toes crossed, and with no more glitches, the "Christmas Joy" white bordered cards will be here November 26 - 29th.  Cards may be preordered now.  All preordered cards will be labeled and stamped and ready to go as soon as they are delivered. 

 Although it is too late to make more changes for this year, ( cards have gone to press)
I'd love to know your thoughts.   It will help me with designing next years cards!

I love Halloween.
Pumpkins, spice, fall air, berries and candles,  
soft warmth of lanterns in the windows. 
Halloween Lanterns

One year, some of my lanterns went missing.

I ended up buying new orange paper lanterns, and simple lights.
Then I opened the lanterns and drew faces with markers. 

...each year I like to change and add new ones
the purple/pink on was purchased at Trapps years ago.  
 "Trick or Treat" by my house to see our Pumpkin Lanterns.
