new prints


:: shooting . limited edition fine art print

i've made prints of my first 2 new paintings for the new year. {the other one is here}.
they are now in the shop.

have also been playing around with the design of my blog! there's lots left to do still ~ but i'll need to work on it when i can without stressing! one of my vague thoughts/wishes for the new year {not concrete enough to be called resolutions} involves trying not to stress about the work that i can't do/finish in the time available and even to limit the 'deadlines'!

a hard one!! it seems a bit counter~something too, as to get the most out of the short work time blocks, it's best to have a plan/list/deadline/goal . . . but, my expectations are often too great and the resulting stress is not do~able long~term!

. . . so, you might notice a few improvements here over time :)

did you factor in any stress~reducing thoughts for this year?

I really like the new layout. Blog design is tough- hard to obtain balance with out looking empty. :)

The new print is lovely- I think the red really pops out of that soft green

LOvely print - I love what you do - so serene :).
As for bringing some serenity into my life I'm trying to get into online grocery shopping and meal planning - wish me luck!

The site looks great, as does the print. Can't wait to see more stressless work. :)

You're blog is looking so lovely and fresh! Very stress free I think :) I need to find some stress reducing thoughts for the year because one of my "resolutions" has been very stress-full (ie, get more involved in social media) :) I need to get back in the studio more!

LOVE the new blog look! the header is nice and soothing. and i saw your new print on tumblr and just adore it. ^_^

i too tend to take on too much and romanticize the amount of work i can get done in a block of time and end up frazzled and disappointed. if you figure out a solution then let me know!

Hmm.. stress stress. I spent my last year stressing in finishing the projects and deadlines but the starting of this year, I'm taking them slower than usual. I just tell myself "This can wait..." XD I need rest, afterall!

Lovely print :) I really like the new geometric shapes that you are starting to incooperate (sorry, I've been semi-absent from the blog world for a few months).

Ren said...

Very nice. Reminds me of constellations.

Love the new prints ... there is always such lovely delicacy and calm beauty in your art.

I've been working on my blog design too - yours is looking lovely. I think they are often a bit work-in-progress, particularly if you're a control freak / perfectionist like me! ;)

My stress reducing thought this year is just to force time out - I'm reading from a book each night and just relaxing with the husband more than I did last year ... stay stress free my friend! :)

beautiful and delicate work...stress less? I have to tell myself everyday 'what's the rush?' but not stressing is a work in progress too x
