Thinking of the past

This is back in 1975? when Big Wheels were all the rage. Just getting ideas on how to do some illustrations. Drawing some dahlias & other flowers, babushkas, more birds...

I just inquired about who to contact at Martha Stewart magazine to feature a small pix of my Tweet&Flora cards. 
"My purpose is to bring a chuckle and a smile to people who receive Tweet&Flora cards".

I have to go & buy more paper. Later, dudes.

Learning Floral Design

I finally have learned by osmosis to do small arrangements. Tammy from the www.Height Floral Shoppe has a great talent in doing loose, European "gardeny" arrangements using 3 set of different flowers. Here I just chose fuschia gerberas, with bupleurum as a foundation and hypericum berries for an accent in a small white ceramic vase. Very summery.
So, besides illustrator, graphic designer, I can cal myself an amateur floral designer.

A Double message for Cleveland from Pingquik

Today I created this image using Pingquik dreaming about making it in the music business and promoting Cleveland. This could be great for t-shirts and a print, cards. etc....
Any comments? The font? colors?

I have been Etsy Stalked!

I forgot to announce that this group of etsy curators chose my LOVE-PEACE-JOY Tweet&Flora cards for their site! Unfortunately, I think the next day that item expired in etsy! It is now back up plus the assortment of greeting cards from my little birds.

I have to paint for the NOIS show, but I don't think I am going to make it.

Tweet&Flora Calling card to give away in gifts

I am having a lot of fun designing Tweet images. This card I gave to my friends who were moving away as a gift that they can use to place on gifts or to give to new people they meet.

• I can add more information on the back such as email or cell phone #s.
• Anyone interested, business size card 2 x 3.5" on nice cover stock paper in bright white using archival      (pigment) inks.
• 20 cards for $12 or 30 cards for $18
• I can also make this bigger for Note cards, a print to have it framed, etc...
I will post this in etsy soon.
