Sprout Shower

Two springs ago I designed this baby shower invitation to shower my sweet friend and her now-almost-two year old daughter. We didn't know yet that little Maddie was all sugar and spice and everything nice, so this was the neutral gender invitation. They called her "Sprout" up until they named her, so I wanted to work in that cute nickname since I thought it added character and personalized it for them.


I printed them at home (4 x 6) and glued them onto varying earth-toned shimmery pieces of cardstock so there was a border of color. 

Names and personal info are changed....In case you didn't read the part about it being a couple years ago and you try to crash the party :)

Graphic Design: Oh What Fun

I know it's April.

But still, I'm posting our Christmas card from 2011 for your viewing pleasure and for me to have chronicled in my file of silly things I have designed. 

We like to think we're slightly odd (in an endearing way, maybe?) and we like to have fun! We wanted to put a smile on our family and friends' faces -- or at least make them raise an eyebrow :) So here's what we came up with.

I had them printed by and they turned out fantastic!

Calendar: April

A new month to celebrate! Happy April to you, my fine feathered friend.

This month I'm thankful for warm, sunny weather, and for a new outdoor swing to enjoy these longer days with my sweetie.

A year ago, I made my first desktop calendar in order to share something I love to do--a simple, quick composition of color from my sketchbook--with my family and friends. It has been a joy to hear of friends from all walks of real life and web-life enjoying the calendars and it has been a great creative discipline to keep me challenged and consistently painting.  

Here's to more s k calendars, straight from the bottom of my {brightly colored} heart :) 

Pretend it's March 14th

I had a little fun on my sweetie's birthday a couple of weeks ago.... and I got a laugh out of him, so I'm happy :)

Finished Products

An update on these sketch paintings for the Rick family...
      They became paintings on full-sized 2' x 4' x 2" canvases.

The beautiful blue-green-gray walls in their living room form the backdrop for these colorful panels to flank the crisp white mantel and smooth stone-wrapped fireplace.



They have a love for nature--trees, specifically--and their appreciation for art in their home was refreshing.



Thanks, Ricks! These were a lot of fun :)
