a little village
last night i was going through some boxes of stuff (i have too many boxes of stuff), and i found this painting i did about eight years ago after visiting the charming little village of tiradentes, brazil. if i could make artsyville a real town, i would want it to look like just like tiradentes - a warm, colorful, quirky, nonlinear, haphazard place where it would be a joy to retreat and create.
speaking of joy, i was thrilled to find christy's letterpress joy card in the december/january issue of mary engelbreit's home companion. here it is online, and in the magazine it is on page 30. if you're a letterpress fan, get thee over to the petite press; christy's work is amazing. there is also a great article in this issue about penelope dullaghan, founder of illustration friday.
other news: sold some more prints at the blue plate exhibition and i'm off to deliver them this afternoon. and, now that i have the print thing figured out, i've decided to take artsyville to etsyville. i reserved the name earlier this year just in case i decided to open up a shop, and i'm glad i did. hopefully, artsyville will be up and running by the beginning of december with 5"x7" and 8"x10" doodleprints.
