The Saturday Evening Post




I'm so excited to share this recent illustration!  The Saturday Evening post asked me to do the cover of the March/April issue back in January and I couldn't have been more thrilled.  It's an honor to take part in such a historic magazine.  Nothing like Rockwell, but fun nonetheless!

"The grand legacy of The Saturday Evening Post has endured for nearly 300 years in part due to the creativity and innovation of its founders, publishers, editors and cover artists. The rich history of the Post has been thoughtfully reaching its readers since a time before America yet existed."-from saturdayeveningpost.com.  You can read more about the magazine and it's history here.

Zermatt




A recent commission appearing in the upcoming issue of  Die Weltwoche Stil based in Switzerland. 
I did a similar scene for them last year, and I was very excited when they asked me to do another.  The illustration shows the alpine village, Zermatt, and the famous Matterhorn mountain.  It was such a pleasure to do this, because I think cottages and trees are some of my favorite things to paint!

There has been a serious lack of posts here lately, but hopefully that will change soon.  I've been so busy with work and wedding planning that I hardly have time to breathe!

Etsy news: going postal



I'm so excited about these new stickers I designed for my Etsy orders.  Silly little things like this make me so happy.

My "Night Home" books have officially sold out in my shop (WOW), but you can purchase one here for the same price.

collecting evidence


 I've been saving my palette papers as mementos.  I don't know what I'll do with them, but sometimes they turn out too pretty to throw away.  I seem to use a lot of green don't I?
