A blog about my thoughts and my love of artwork as it develops. It reflects some of the basic steps that I go through to achieve the artwork which is eventually presented to Spicher and Co, an innovative design firm that manufactures artwork for the trade. The why, what, how, and where are a few of the questions that I attempt to answer as I blog away! This is a tiny window into the life of a painter, and my hope is that my love for life shines through in the objects that I work to create.

Vintage looking pressed flowers
THE CHESAPEAKE COLLECTION
THE ART OF pressing REAL FLOWERS and
turning THEM into LIVE stamps.
I am really excited about these and have been working on this project ALL summer. I went to the Chesapeake Bay and while on walks, I gathered fresh flowers and weeds along the roadside, painting them, pressing them, and then turning them into 'stamps' that were used for art.
These will be taken to High Point Wholesale MARKET in October. We exhibit in the Commerce and Design building! There about 24 of them! I hope you enjoy!
I really love the colors on this one
A splash of red for fall!
I am unsure how I will have the framed but am going to be hanging then in my house sometime very soon. Here is the whole lot of them thrown on my extra large dining room table!
