At the end of 2011, my personal project was chalkboards. I was itching for a new medium, as I often do, and I decided to draw on a chalkboard every month. It was my creative outlet, if you will. By 2012, there was some interest in purchasing prints and after some hesitation, I decided to sell just 25 a month.

Cow Butcher Chart

Since then, the image files have been on my computer collecting proverbial dust and a few weeks ago, someone asked if I would be selling prints again. I have thought about it and although I was reluctant at first (I just don’t have the time to go to the post office every day anymore) Etsy has a digital download feature that allows me to sell the image files directly to you. You can print it at any size up to a 16×20 at your own home or send them to your local printer–how could I say no?

Whole World

I have created several digital download listings of chalkboard drawings of yore for just $10 each (I used to sell each print for $25) and the well-liked “Home is the Nicest Word There Is” print, too. They are available to download instantly after payment is received. I can’t thank you enough for supporting me throughout all of these years. Art is a large creative outlet for me and it is so wonderful to be able to share it with all of you, in one form or another, each day.

You can check out all 7 of the digital prints available right here.

What do you think?

    I’m glad you put these up– and so affordable! I’ll probably buy “home sweet home” once I figure out where to put it! I have always loved that one. Thanks for sharing your talents!!!

  2. Beautiful! Right now I live in a small apartment with a teeny-tiny kitchen (no wall space at all) but when we get a house I’ll definitely be purchasing these to hang up!

  3. I love that you’re featuring your artwork here. And that with two kids, you’re still making art! I have two art degrees (and a basement full of old paintings!) but haven’t made anything in a while – it’s hard to find/make the time (we have two kids as well). I really enjoy seeing all the creative work you’re doing, please keep sharing!

We’re welcoming fall by lighting up the evenings with the glow of our fire pit. In Idaho, fire pits were more of a summer evening event. Fall was too cold to be out in the evening without being bundled with a coat and blanket. It’s magically different here, and the subtle crisp evenings are just […]
