For the Love of Art

You’ve heard me speak on artistic expression and how important it is to myself (and others here) many times before. I often see some wonderful creators go unnoticed and this bothers me to no end. So, earlier in the week I vented those thoughts on Twitter and called out to fellow artists and creators of all kinds to share their info with me so we can all give each other a little boost.

The response was so warm and beautiful. Here are the results:

See what I mean? Such a lovely response from such beautifully talented individuals. & We will continue to support and feature fellow artists & creators of all kinds as long as this site stands.

Be sure to follow the CardCastles Twitter for little updates and exclusives like these. For now it’s solely run by yours truly, but moderated by our team behind the scenes here at Snapping Turtle®. CardCastles TERMS apply to all social media accounts as well.

Most importantly, never stop dreaming. 🙂

The Information Broker

Well darlings,

I’m excited to reveal to you another collaboration with my two favorite authors!

The Information Broker, the sequel to The Erratic Sun

is my third cover artwork for a book or novel that is available for purchase on Amazon.

[Click to purchase on Amazon for Kindle or paperback!]
My dear friends Matt “Matticus” Blashill & Micheal “Revis” Hansen have worked very hard to give you another beautiful installment to this story. For those that enjoyed The Erratic Sun, I highly recommend this sequel.

If you aren’t familiar with either, I suggest giving The Erratic Sun a spin.

& If you’re into the fantasy genre, check out The Seven Sceptres as well. (Also available right here at CardCastles by clicking on the book in the sidebar.)

Happy reading!

Come back & let me know what you think!!

Sleepy Sundays: Hazy Memories

Hazy Memories ©️2019 Snapping Turtle Arts | cardcastlesinthesky.com

Some summers remind me of summer’s past & the little memories tucked within them.

Out where I live, if you’re closeby some water or a storm is on its way, sometimes you see this hazy mist in the sky–almost like a fog, but much thinner.

This is the first landscape design I’ve done in a while based off of just that. This one is going to be exclusively wall art & not used for other projects.

We’ve spent a good portion of this year cleaning up from the last. Now it’s time to finally have some fun. Much more to come in the coming weeks, folks. Strap in & get ready. 😁

& Most importantly, have a relaxing rest of your Sunday.

Sleepy Sundays: Beyond the Line

Beyond the Line ©️ 2019 Snapping Turtle Arts | cardcastlesinthesky.com

Landscapes are one of my favorite things to paint or design when it comes to wall art. Right now, I’m working on a few of these and am unsure which ones I’m going to keep.

This is the first one in that bunch. The look was inspired by how this area close to us looks after a thunderstorm at sunset.

What have you been up to lately?

Have a peaceful Sunday

7 Years

It’s been 7 years since we put the first card in the sky.

So much has changed.

We almost had to close between this year and last. Somehow, running on miracles, we were able to save this place. &While things are still somewhat uncertain, I am grateful for this opportunity to continue what we are trying to build on.

Thanks for flying with us.
