Studio Tour Continues

Oh - aren't these LONG summer days glorious?! I know there are a lot of Autumn-lovers out there, but summer is my season and I am lovin' it!And, since the "lazy days" of summer are in full swing ... how 'bout another peak into my studio today? :-)

Between the two doorways, I found a perfect spot for a mini-gallery of some of my retro paintings. They are 20 x 24 inch wood panels. I thought these large black gallery shelves from Lowe's would allow me to change my mind "every five minutes" about what I wanted to display and not have 541 nail holes in the wall. (Tip - in other areas of my home I have used the "Hercules Hook" with great success! )Above one of the doorways, hangs this plaque. It's another example of something you could create for yourself using my Lettering Tutorial . It's a product from a home decor collection I used to sell. "Trust in the Lord" done in a casual script font. One way to create the thin black outline "at home" is to use a fine paint pen, a raised ruler (so the ink will not bleed under) and a very steady hand. Above the other doorway I have this "W" plate. A fun clearance find a while back from Anthropologie:
I thank you for taking the tour with me ... please exit to your right ... for prints or cards of the items you've seen on today's tour, please visit the gift shop. :-)

I found your blog via The Nester and have enjoyed my visit here so much. I have purchased your line at Hallmark stores, so it was so nice to meet the woman behind the merchandise. Blessings to you from Alabama!

Hi, from SITS! Let me just say, you have a beautiful blog, and beautiful work! I don't have a very steady hand, so I couldn't do what you do with the painting! Awesome work! :)
