It’s that time of year, and I’ve created some unique gifts for the holidays.
I have a lovely selection of leaf print silk scarves in two sizes and many different designs. These scarves are created by pressing leaves against silk and steaming over boiling water for two hours. No inks, dyes or paints are used — just the colors from the leaves themselves.
Next up are my handwoven scarves, soft and luxurious in a variety of lively textures and colors. I weave each scarf on a rigid heddle loom using elegant high-end yarns.
My framed art and leaf print necklaces make great gifts. The art necklaces are one-of-a-kind miniature abstract paintings mounted in hardwood frames, and the leaf print necklaces are made using leaf prints on paper mounted under glass. The leaf prints look like fossils to me — interesting marks made by plants from long ago.
I also offer my leaf prints on heavy watercolor paper, ready to be framed. These look great displayed individually or in groups of two or three prints. They’re created the same way as the scarves — leaves pressed against paper and steamed over boiling water.
Then there are my paintings! I’ve created some smaller paintings for gifts, and I have a few of my experimental paintings that I’m offering at a discount price.
“Joy,” diptych, 10 x 20 inches, repurposed acrylic latex paint on canvas
“Fracture,” 10 x 20 inches, repurposed acrylic latex paint on canvas
If you’re looking to treat yourself, I highly recommend one of my larger paintings to spruce up your home. I’m especially fond of the new pieces I’ve been working on, and I’m kind of in love with this painting right now.
“Rhapsody in Blue,” 36 x 48 inches, repurposed acrylic latex paint on canvas
As a “thank you” for the holidays, I’m offering 25% off on all of my larger, regular-priced paintings. See them here: Rust and Flow, Gaia, Transformation, and Stream of Consciousness. Use discount code HAPPY at checkout. Good through the end of the year, and paintings ship for free!
For those in the US, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, whether you’re spending it alone or with loved ones. I know this continues to be an especially challenging year, and yet we still have much to be grateful for. I’m very grateful for you, and I so appreciate you following along on my artistic journey.
Take good care, and as always, be well.
