The warm weather makes me happy!
I have fond memories of tanning by the pool as a teen. These days, I slather on SPF just to walk to the nearest CVS.
I'm working from my studio today and not on a job site (a stage - painting sets or location for mural) It's sunny, mild and all my windows are open. It seems like a nice day to write a quick post and send out my newsletter. If you receive one from me, you are one of a small select group :) Feel free to sign up!
I recently added some new items to my Society 6 Shop. Above, some of the bags with their corresponding paintings.
Like mother, like daughter.
My good friend, Melissa Zexter, finally broke down and purchased an iPhone for her older daughter, Mirabelle. I'm calling her phone case the Mirabelle Rose :)
She bought the Tropicali case for herself. Just look how happy it makes her!!
These beach must-haves, are just that, must-haves and every illustrator I know has probably painted or drawn some version of this. It's fun to paint the icons of summer!
I thought I'd end with a Wednesday round-up! I love painting portraits, cocktails, cars and cute characters.
Enjoy the rest of your week. Go get some sun, your essential vitamin D!
