*Prints*

I've been offering prints of my work for the past few years now, and each and every one was painstakingly printed by yours truly :) Each. And. Every.One. And as much as I like being a hands on artist, it was getting to be a bit of a chore, and there was always that painful experimentation to try and get the colors and paper just right. I am happy to report that now, this aspect of my art has been handed over to the professionals :) All the new prints are done on a nice heavy matte paper. I like prints with some bulk and weight to them. In the future I might try out a bit of a gloss, for for now I like the look of the matte, its very storybookish and shows off the bold lines of my prints really well.

Thanks to the sleuthing skills of my crafty friend Holly, we were able to find a local shop that will do up our prints and perhaps even our postcards and other printed goodies and I'm so excited! Not only do we get to support a local business, its just much more efficient in more ways than one. So starting with this week's orders, the prints that you purchase through my etsy shop and at shows will be professionally done (yippee!!)

Well, I have passed my first week of being the mama of a real live school girl and its gone by pretty fast. I've gotten a lot done, but I still need to find my schedule and my groove. Some random things came up this week so I didnt get a lot of solid time in the studio, but I'm planning on lots of time in the next few days. And even with the other things going on, I've gotten a lot of good work done.

I just feel really excited about it all. It puts me in an extremely good mood. What an incredible blessing it is to get the chance to do what I've dreamed of doing since I was a little girl coloring pictures all afternoon long, lost in old timey worlds and stories. Thanks to my bearded Mister for being the real reason this is even possible.

And so. Let the folk art world take over begin! Ready, set, paint!~

  1. Well done on your first week as a school mummy Heather, and also well done for all of your work too! I LOVE your prints, and also like the idea that they are on heavy gauge card too ~ nice. I am a matt finish kinda gal, it seems to say "age and beauty" more than gloss does.....
    Go Folk Art Go!
    Have a great weekend!

  2. They look great! I feel the same way. I'm pretty much living the life I dreamed of when I was 13, maybe with slightly less $ in the bank, but still--musician husband, couple of kids, old house with a wrap around porch, making art and playing music. We are lucky gals!

  3. Congratulations, Heather! They look amazing. I like prints with a bit of heft to them, too. Kind of makes it look like actual artwork. :)
