February tends to be a difficult time for Portlanders. After months of gray, rainy skies and the cold, we start looking like Gollum from The Hobbit. Okay, maybe that's a little extreme, but you get the point. We are all chomping at the bit for some summer weather. And I'm no exception.
Our family had a blast last summer exploring the Pacific Northwest. And we hope to continue the adventure in upcoming months. Until then, I'll keep the fireplace crackling and daydream via paper and paintbrush.
My latest vision of summer grandeur is captured in a new work called Beyond. I've made it into a print that's now available in my Etsy shop. And, this week, you can get it for 25% off the original price!
I recently discovered that the sugar cane paper I've been using for my art prints has been discontinued. I have one box left, but I'm transitioning to using premium paper made from bamboo fibers. Although there are a lot of paper options for artists who want to make their own prints, there actually aren't very many eco-friendly choices. Fortunately, the bamboo paper is nearly identical to the sugar cane paper. So I'm relieved that the change hasn't been too problematic and that I can still offer eco-friendly prints in my shop.
