Roses have always been symbolic to me. Some give them as gifts. We see them at weddings; funerals.
I’m sharing an older, more simple design today that some of you may have already seen if you follow any of my “Daydreams” accounts on social media.
I share this in memory of my late father, for Father’s Day. & Also for my Uncle Pat, who passed away in January. My great uncle was another one of the amazing father figures I’ve been blessed with in this life.
I miss them both terribly, but they’ve made me realize just how lucky I am to still have some special men in my life that hold the title of “father” in more way than one.
Alright friends & friendly strangers, we’ve got some great news!! We were able to save our business & website just in time! You know what that means, don’t you?? #SleepySundays resumes this Sunday & I’m taking requests for my services starting right now! Back to work!
While most of you wait until October to see some of my horror-inspired designs, I remind you that horror is where my love for art and design began.
With a string of vivid dreams and nightmares lately, it’s no surprise I took a break from my tradition of spring floral sets to work on a horror piece.
My personal life has my career feeling like bloodletting lately. My love for art has not left me, however, the strain of having to design on a schedule has been a nightmare. Art has been a cathartic release, even if the scheduling causes me pain.
Financial stresses make operation a lot more difficult as well. As always, we will see what the cards hold.
This weekend I got a chance to catch up with some family and friends & a family member happened to remind me spring is around the corner. I’ve also been working on some floral patterns & spring designs for that reason. This is one of the early concepts for one of them. I plan on making this one into some sort of tiled pattern.
