Three weeks ago, I began trickling in some of my new Minima Series pieces. Tomorrow is the official "launch" on my website along with some elegant new pieces in the series you may not have yet seen.
Lately, I've been really into looking for sea otters. Here in the Monterey area they are very common. I love to go stand on Fisherman's Wharf and look for them eating and playing together. Why is it otters always seem to be putting on a show for onlookers? They are so gosh-darn cute! I couldn't stop thinking of them, so naturally I painted a teeny necklace painting of one for you to enjoy. -- The Sea Otter, $40.00
My trip to the redwood forest on the 4th of July was spectacular! It was almost surreal standing in such a large forest. I was inspired after visiting them to paint them, but what really stood out to me was their age. At the entrance of the trail I hiked, was a large slice from a fallen tree. The rings were marked to show approximately how old it was. I was so inspired by it that when I sat down to paint the tree, I ended up painting it's story instead. -- Slice of a Redwood, $46.00
Copper Tea Kettle, $46.00
This little fox looking up is like my unofficial symbol. For the last 2 years, I've painted several versions of him for various pieces, drawing a doodle of him on nearly every package sent out, and even considered getting version of him (looking a bit different, I think). He's still my favorite, and I think this pill case is my favorite version of him yet. -- Fox in the Woods, 3 section pill case, $50.00
As always, I take custom orders. Below are two of my recent ones. I really love them both. The cat took quite a bit of back and forth with the buyer to get just right, but I am so glad it did because the final product is adorable!
