Just Listed: New Lake Effects Art, plus Christmas Sales!

So here are my latest listings: Original Lake Effects III watercolors from last summer’s  painting project of Lake Michigan; a fabulous new signed and numbered collage print series showcasing the new Lake Effects III (summer) watercolors. Also find my new 2007 handbags and scarf & bag sets (now on sale for Christmas) as well as new necklaces and earrings (also on sale for Christmas).

Order anytime, but if you call by the 18th (i.e. the next ten days!) you can get it for Christmas!

The season has come for me to create! I love winter—so much time to focus and get things made and written. I have some big projects to finish, including the children’s book titled What’s In the Woods? (Great Lakes companion to my successful What’s on the Beach?) 

So Happy December, everyone!

Lake Effects III, Coming Up!

Starting in May and going through September, I will be working on the third and last poster in my Lake Effects posters. I don’t know whether I should say where this window is quite yet, but it is probably all right to let on that it’s in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, looking south, which lends a slightly different perspective to the first two posters, which were painted from a west-facing window.

I am almost out of the first two posters—Lake Effect I and Lake Effect II—with fewer than an hundred each remaining. I thought that rather than go to a third printing (those that remain are of a second edition), I’d do a summer poster, something new and a little different. Lake Effects I covers October-December, and Lake Effects II January – April; Lake Effects III will celebrate May – October.

Here are two sample paintings I’ve done as an experiment, painted from photographs of the prospective view. The actual poster paintings, all small playing-card size, will be painted from life, not photographs.

The posters should be ready for Christmas, 2007, at $25 each. Email me to get on the waiting list, and get a 20% discount!
