Nourish Restaurant Painting Delivered

Nourish

Nourish

I was recently asked to create a painting for the Nourish Restaurant in Sequim. This painting would then be used as the basis for creating coasters, 6×6 trivets and cards. I just delivered the painting and all of these products to Nourish and they are now for sale. I am very excited about this opportunity. Next time you are at this great restaurant, please check out the painting and products.


Handmade Buttons for Journals

I recently met Dede Leupold (Bumblebeads) who makes hand made buttons. I bought a bunch of these buttons to go on my softcover journals and I’m anxious to do that,

Additionally, I asked her to make some that have my logo on them so I could use those as well. I am very excited about these new buttons and can’t wait to get some softcover journals made with these great hand made buttons.

The other book of Gene’s that I illustrated, called “When Cricket’s Snore”, was published last summer. It was a lot of fun to do and so far this one is as well.
