Sleepy Sundays: Harvest Time

This time of year usually brings in a lot of autumn design requests. This year has been no different. Although my schedule has changed a little, and I’m still in a healing process, I look forward to doing these designs each year as they’ve become sort of a fun tradition. Keep sending in those greeting card requests as well because I love doing prints for as long as I can until my schedule fills up. 🙂

Have a relaxing Sunday!

Tonight’s nightmarish addition is going to be part of my horror design collection for this year. The look was inspired by a nightmare had about being trapped under ice.

Quite the chilling recent memory.

Sleepy Sundays: Crimson Waves

There’s been a lot of talk these past few weeks about “peak colors” for fall foliage in my region here on this east coast section of the clouds. Some say this time for the greatest variety and most gorgeous hue is around October, but it largely depends on the temperatures of the season. This new wall art/greetings combo tile was designed with that time in mind. There are trees around here that turn this bright, candy apple red when the conditions are just right. Many of these sights usually make it into my designs each autumn season. This year is no different.

Do you enjoy the fall season? We sure do!

Sleepy Sundays: Heart Stream

Heart Stream

Way back when artwork was sold here as home decor & greetings, Valentine’s Day cards and greeting card designs became sort of a tradition here every year. This one was designed with watercolor effects in mind. I decided to make it into a simple patterned greeting. Sometimes less is more. I love these colors so I just might keep this one and add it to the growing new gallery.

Have a light-hearted Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Wind Trips

Patterns like this one are always a blast for me to design because I’ll collage several different designs into one. This one is made up of two different patterns of fall foliage, one that I shrunk down into tiny little golden pearl-textured dots. I’ve been working on designs like these through October, and they will likely continue through November if time allows.

This weekend’s was inspired by the winds that hit here about Friday that are signs of an upcoming storm in our area.

What colors have you seen floating through the sky lately? Do you like multi-layered designs for a living room? How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?

Have a breezy Sunday!
