While I have been adding the final touches on the art for Greta’s room, I have been working on some paintings for the gallery shop.  Woot. This 24×36 painting was just added and is available for purchase here.
Also, since Valentine’s day is upon us, our two most lovey-dovey prints are on super sale at only $15 (originally $25) for the month.  Check the Kermit quote out here and the anatomical heart here.
And tomorrow, come back here to chat about some art in Greta’s big girl room.  :)

What do you think?

  1. Also, the heart chalk print isn’t showing up as $15 on Etsy. Does the sale start in feb?

  2. Love the new painting! So much talent you have.

    It sold? Noooo :-) If you feel like making a similar piece again, let me know! I would love to have it up proudly in my home!

  6. Whitney says:

    Oh, I adore that painting! I love your style!!! We just moved into our first home (we previously lived in a mobile home), and I’m itching to fill our walls with art. I’m definitely going to make my way over to your Etsy shop. :)

    Also, I love your blog! It’s so refreshing to read a home decor blog that just feels so real to life.

  7. Missy G. says:

  8. On sale!!!! Eeeeee!!!!

    That new piece is a show stopper. Definitely one of my favorites that you’ve done!

Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work.
