'Round Here: Art Edition


Y'all are the sweetest with all the birthday wishes. Thank you so much!! The 31 things was a fun post to write. Maybe I'll do another one sometime (but, like, only 5, ha!).

So my art collection has been growing! Yay. Here's the latest.

I framed and hung one of my own paintings and am really liking it in this spot.

I painted two very similar ones here and here in my shop. And I know what you're thinking, my striped blankets end up everywhere. I love them and am always moving around...

For Valentine's Day Josh surprised me with a Lulie Wallace painting. I love :)

And for my birthday he also got me an original Clare Elsaesser painting after I blogged about it. Clare was sweet enough to also send along two prints and a pack of gorgeous post cards.


The top one is the original piece. Bottom two are gorgeous prints. I love these so much. Need to frame asap. 

Lastly, I got out my paints and added a little color to some charcoal nudes that I've had for years. Planning to hang these in our bathroom.

After...

That's all I have for today. I'm running off to do a million things today to prepare for a really busy day tomorrow. I'm hosting a girly pot luck on the porch lunch for some friends, then off to a fun photoshoot for Glitter Guide with some awesome girlfriends, and then a birthday dinner at Rutledge Cab Co with some friends. 

I hope y'all have a great weekend!

Love the unique way you added color to your charcoal nudes. We had some John Dunnan original nude drawings in our office, but finally decided that a Children's Hospital office might not be the best place for them. I love them.
