Greetings and Salutations on this rainy Fall Equinox day. Although you won’t see this post until tomorrow, I hope your first day of fall was lovely.
Yellow the bracken,
Golden the sheaves,
Rosy the apples,
Crimson the leaves;
Mist on the hillside,
Clouds grey and white.
Autumn, good morning!
Summer, good night!

It has been about three weeks since my last post and felt that it was time to update you on what’s going on in my studio. It was fairly uneventful until a few weeks ago.
Art News: A few pieces of my art have found new homes. And if you remember, the vintage slate tiles we’d found on the property? We’ll mostly, pieces of slate, although some were nice sizes and interesting enough for arts and crafts. I had an urge to paint some fall pumpkins and sold all of them but one. I would love to get my hands on more of those tiles. If they are whole they are 12×24 inches, and apparently fetch a pretty penny. I saw one for sale in the FB Marketplace for the same price that I sell the painted pieces. I am not familiar with their history, but am guessing they do not make them that size any longer? 🤷🏻♀️
I am working on some digital images for my sig gigs (RedBubble & Etsy-links at bottom of this post)
I’ve been thinking about the holidays, they’re quickly approaching! 😑 How could I incorporate something artistic but affordable on my Etsy store and on products in my RedBubble shop (my side gigs). I’ve noticed that woodland creatures are still very popular and am working on a series based off this idea, but themed for the holiday. I will also make them UNthemed and available as well. Which brings me to 1the social media Tik Tok. I’ve been a fan of many accounts for over a year now, and I recently started adding some of my time lapse videos. They seem to be pretty popular in views. I’m still working on getting comfortable enough to talk more and show my face. I don’t have that millennial/GenX gene, not one drop. I don’t imagine I’ll ever have the charisma to ever be a viral sensation on social media.🤣
That about sums it up for my studio work. The other things occupying my time would probably bore you silly…like gardening, grubbing, and working as a pavers assistant while we put in the sidewalk from hell!
Until next time. Stay safe and healthy.
