I Painted.

I Painted.

  In June, I went to Wine and Canvas at Wicks Park Bar and Grill in Saugatuck with two of my friends. We had a blast!  We had so much fun that we decided to do it again in July.     It reminded me how much I love to paint!  I’ve had a GIANT canvas sitting in my laundry room for 7 months now.  I decided to get it out and do something with it!  I’ve been very inspired by floral paintings lately, since it’s summer and all, so I decided to give it a whirl.  I really like how it turned out! I couldn’t resist adding a word with hand lettering to it.  I don’t know if I have any art that doesn’t have a word on it… It just doesn’t feel complete until it says something!   I hung it in my entry way/ stair way.  Maybe someday I’ll sell it.  Or make prints.  But for now, I like it...
Autumn in Michigan 2014

Autumn in Michigan 2014

Today seems like an appropriate day to introduce this year’s Autumn in Michigan sign!  We are having another polar vortex here in west Michigan.  It’s July 15th, and it’s cold and rainy.  I really don’t mind this weather, though, because Fall is my favorite season. This sign will be available in two sizes: 8×10″ and 4×5.”  In an effort to get myself a little more than caught up for Fall (since I always make everything to order and go a little bit crazy trying to keep up), I am going to take pre-orders for these at an earlybird sale price, and they will begin shipping at the end of August!  They can be customized to any state or town. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the Christmas in Michigan sign, which will also begin shipping at the end of...
June MATS Bootcamp Assignment

June MATS Bootcamp Assignment

    It was another nautical-inspired month for Make Art that Sells!  The June gallery will go live in a little over a week, but here is a preview of my art.  Some day, I would love to be a licensed artist!  I know I can make small prints of this and sell it, but I’d love to see this piece a lot...
Final Week of Art Class

Final Week of Art Class

I just wrapped up Make Art that Sells class!  Our final assignment was to design party plates & napkins.  Lilla reviewed mine, and suggested it would also be good for wall art and that I should make a series of 4!  I’m going to miss this class… Bootcamp still continues through July, though. And I just signed up for “Daring Adventures in Collage” with Mati Rose in June!  I’m excited to keep learning and growing my...
