Greeting cards update in the shop

I just completed a massive update to the greeting card section of my shop. Hooray! This has been a long time coming, but now you can see just about every card I have available. That includes this fun green Vespa card, or perhaps you need to send an apology or oops message with this sassy Pink Pearl eraser card!

Custom paintings for local real estate office

I'm really excited to share photos of three custom paintings I just finished for Buckley Jolley, a local real estate office here in Brighton, Michigan. The three pieces will be displayed together as a series and I loved thinking about imagery for house hunters: A large prominent exterior, an all-over design with all different types and styles of houses and a cross-section of a house representing the idea of home. 

The whole project was an adventure! I don't usually work this large — 29x41 inches each — and don't do a lot of commissioned original painting. A big thank you to Colin at The Artisan's Bench for orchestrating the whole thing and to Todd and Natalie Buckley for being so great to work with. And a big thank you to Katie Bramlage for being my model above! I look forward to seeing these framed up and in the space and will be sure to share photos then.
