mixing paints

Trying to come up with a poster to advertise my floral designs. 
Should I worry about branding this early? My largest concern is creating a theme I will be happy with for a prolonged period of time.

Karlie in China

Here is a practice peace I painted from a photo of Karlie Kloss, in the latest September edition of Vogue. The editorial is a great shoot in all various locations across China. 
I am slowly getting used to Gouache Paint.
~ Have a great weekend ~

Festival Flowers



This past weekend was the Harvest Jazz & Blues Music Festival. I was able to exhibit some of my flowers at a local eatery Ceder Tree Cafe which was a host spot for some great live music during the festivities. Here are some quick shots I snapped. The arrangements are 90% wild flowers & locally harvested apples. It was a lot of fun & I hope to do it again soon!

Some shots of whats coming across my desk these days. Quite enjoying flipping through my Vogue September issue 2011.

Loved the latest show from Rodarte. The girls use of Van Gogh Sunflowers was quite brilliant.
I am sure there clientele will agree.

Diane von Furstenberg spring/summer 2012

Jacquelyn Jablonski as seen in a look from Diane von Furstenberg's latest spring/summer collection. DVF had a great wearable catwalk show. A very strong & positive line to be viewed on sept. 11th 2011.
I also love how the hair was styled for this show.

FNO Fashion's Night Out

SO SEPT 8th FNO or Fashion's Night Out
How was it? What did you buy? Who did you see? 
What I would have done to have been in the Big Apple tonight. 

Here is a close up of the drawing I did of Arizona Muse for FNO.

Hint of Fall

Has anyone else felt the first nip of possibly cool airs stirring?
Are you beloved swarthy sweaters calling softly to you from your storage trunks? 
Have the gleanings of summer's harvest made their way to your local supermarket yet?
Have you seen any hints of fall?

Summer Hues + Blooms + Eats

Thought I would share the feast my great mother spread for me back at the beginning of the summer before I headed off on my adventures. I figured it would be a great time to put my then latest vase into use. I created a tall centre piece & trailed some vines in the water for an added effect. All of the flowers grow in local fields (three cheers for living in the countryside!)

summer supper

Gathered at some friends house for a traditional "Sunday Supper".
We all enjoyed the fresh corn on the cob, spinach salad, market carrots, broccoli, home grown garden potatoes & BBQ steak. I brought some flowers I picked on my way there & after we got a tour of the chicken coop.
