It’s full-on summer mode here in Seattle.
That means blue skies, sunshine, and beautiful flowers everywhere.
Ok, this photo was not exactly taken in Seattle – we went to Orcas Island last weekend for a short visit.
We stayed at Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead, where Dave used to live for 7 years when we were first dating.
Such a magical place Orcas is… If you haven’t been there, I highly recommend you make a trip up there! It’s not that far from Seattle (about 2.5 hrs one way, including the ferry ride) but feels so far away from everything.
Plants and nature have been a big part of my creative inspiration.
Especially flowers, I can’t get enough of them!
I’m often daydreaming of converting our veggie gardens into flower gardens (don’t tell Dave!!)
So it is no wonder why I created 2018 calendars full of flowers and uplifting messages.
Though the calendars are long sold out, I turned 6 of my illustrations into 8″x8″ archival canvas prints for an art show I’m having at Tin Umbrella Coffee in South Seattle right now!
First of all, if you live in/hear Seattle, go visit this cute coffee shop this month and enjoy the artwork in person!
Plus, their coffee is amazing.
These canvas prints turned out SO nice.
The colors are so crisp and vibrant. And the canvas texture is oh so yummy.
It’s scratch and smudge resistant, so you don’t have to be super precious around it, which may be a plus if you have little ones around 😉
It’s got a metal piece on the back for easy hanging, too.
Since many of you live far away, I wanted to invite you to the show virtually and make them available for purchase online, too!
You can now enjoy the gallery and shop your favorite canvas art here ✨
(** Please note that since I only have one of each prints, the artwork you purchase won’t be available to ship until the show is over at the end of July.)
Oh, and if you live in the US, shipping is FREE! Isn’t it exciting?
I hope you get to check out my work in person if you’re in the area, or online if you don’t live nearby 😊
p.s. in case you missed the link, you can shop my new canvas prints here.
