Art Cards

Did you guys know that my Art Cards have begun to hit the shop?
 
They are all hand-cut, hand-folded and handmade by yours truly in my sweet rabbit filled studio.

They are also:
Archival
blank inside leaving lots of room to write
printed on velvety smooth heavy weight bright white paper
a lovely 5 x 7 which is perfect for easy framing  
and each one comes with a really cool translucent envelope.
 

These four designs are already available.
 
 
Because if your a lover of this dear blog of mine,
than your likely to not want to just send any old mass produced run of the mill greeting card...
You'll want to send a handmade with heart art card
one which can be framed and enjoyed by yourself and/or your loved ones for years to come.

Dangerously Close To Spontaneious Combustion

It was feeling like the pressure of all the recent rabbit stress etc was building and building.
I might have been getting dangerously close to spontaneous combustion in fact! ha ha!!
So an impromptu trip to the city was exactly what I needed apparently.
Even if it was a long 4 hours there & 5 hours back all in one day cause we don't have a bunny-sitter!
 

 A few precious hours with my beautiful best friend Judit
(carpet & wall paper designer extraordinaire)
whom I haven't seen for over a year and who I have been missing desperately was muchly needed.
It was also a day too to celebrate my sweet hard-working honey
who was beckoned to the city to be honored and recognized for a wonderful achievement in his work.
 
Ahh the city, a change of scenery & best friends to enjoy it all with...than getting back home....lovely.

Pinterest

I think that I completely forgot to tell you guys that
Please do find me on there if you enjoy it too.
 
 
As an artist I find it a source of utterly inspiring eye candy and overwhelming talent.
I have 21 boards so far with titles such as:  'Oh Those Rambunctious Rabbits In Art',
'Soul mates Made Of Flesh, Feathers & Fur', 'Mother Nature's Masterpieces',
'Artists, Their Beautiful Messes & Inspiring Spaces' & 'Stitchery & Textiles, So Good For My Soul'.

Just 1 More For A Bit I Think

I am going to finish this rabbit inkling up & than I'll get back to some colour work for a bit, I think.
It's been a nice long 'break' working with black & white and I'll no doubt come back around to it...
 
 
but for awhile now I've had this buzzing happening in my body...
It's a buzz that's fluttering around constantly wanting some paper doll, watercolours & stitchery play!

Still Frozen

We are so anxious to get into our kayaks...
so this weekend we went to check out how the ice is coming along on the lake nearest to us.
There is still quite a ways to go yet however.
We were joking that we might just be desperate enough to put our boats on the ice and
inch our way along with our ski poles perhaps, ha ha.
Or launch them in that tiny bit of open water to just float there for a couple hours, ha ha.
Ah but that second option with hot cocoa and a book would indeed be quite nice I think!
 

Because of a very scary and very close call on the ice from my childhood
I have a rather strong fear of being on any frozen lake.
When I hear the inevitable cracking sound my whole body freezes...
 but every year I venture out anyways to beat my fears slowly but surely.
Plus, there is something so centering about being on an ice shelf under a hot glaring sun...
Everything is quiet, except the gulls and the you can hear a constant 'drip, drip, drip'.
The ice is velvety smooth under the touch but still of course burning cold.
Ice crackles around you like pop-rock candy...
Lovely.

Starry Starry Night

It's a starry starry night...
with a rabbit of course.
I have to see if I can get this image on a starker whiter background...I am not crazy about the cream.
 
 
I'll let you know when prints hit the shop.
P.S.  I'll be having a SALE for all my Etsy Customers soon, so if that's you,
keep your eyes open for an email giving all the details.
