Bringing winter to Florida

Megan here!  We had a "cold front" on the Space Coast of Florida a while ago, but it's been consistently in the 70s and 80s since.  Guess that's a good thing compared the rest of the country - but I like my winter time season, regardless. Growing up in California made me ache for seasons, too.

To conjure up some of that colder weather, I created this group:

Anemone Blue

  Above designs would be great for:  Greeting Cards, Art Prints, Garden Flags, or even T-shirt designs.

Annnnd, I kind of love it.  I wasn't sure where to start, but I knew I wanted to keep a blue and white theme.  It's a trend, you know!

I wanted a big bold flower to set off the "white" portion of the design, so I went back to my favorite flower, the California Poppy, and discovered it has a botanical relative, the Anemone.  And this flower is just as pretty, but with a little more quirk.  So off I went! 

I got to try out some new lettering, too.  It's kind of flourishy, with a bit of Old-English flair. 

  Above designs would be great for:  Home Decor (blankets, coasters, art prints), bolt fabric, and apparel. And more!

I'm hoping this collection makes you think of moonlit nights and frosty windows. But at the same time, I'm hoping you're warm wherever you are, and you can always visit Florida for a pick-me-up from your winter blues.

 

I'd love to find some homes for this artwork. 

I'm very attached to it would love to see it be snatched up a few markets.

Getting through the winter with floral art therapy.

By Katherine

I live in Minnesota and we have a reputation for being the land of ice and snow. And yes, the winters get long around here. I love winter but come March I’m very ready for spring. This is when being an artist has its perks because in my work I can make it whatever season I want, even when the view on my canvas does not at all match the view from my window. Here’s a look at some of the ways I’ve been surviving this winter through some art therapy. 

 Painting “play” in my sketchbook with some new Kuretake watercolors.

 I’m an avid gardener and I grow a lot of flowers in my yard. I’m also lucky enough to live near the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and I make frequent trips there for inspiration.

 Another floral collection, this time in watercolor. Flowers are, hands down, my favorite thing to paint.

I’m sure I’ll be painting and drawing a lot more flowers in the months to come, it’s only January after all! P.S. All the above collections are available for licensing/purchase if you’re an art director in need of some florals! Get in touch!
