Knitter and The Stash

As both an artist and a knitter, I was surprised to learn recently there were no knitting superheros out there. So of course, I had to fix that, hehe...

Introducing "Knitter"...


And "The Stash"...


I have both originals here in the studio, painted in acrylics on deep, 9" x 12" gallery canvas, and haven't yet decided if I'd like to part with them. So for now, prints are available in the Etsy shop (click here). I think they'd make a fun gift for a knitter, so hope a few of them find homes. :)

In other news, there was a bit of a Facebook kerfuffle last month, after one of my St. Gertrude prints was appropriated by someone to make a meme - which turned out to be shared over 20,000 times before I finally got wind of it, and asked to be credited. The people I contacted graciously did so, and it resulted in quite a few print orders. But I can't help but think what it would have been like had credit been given BEFORE all those shares... All of this is to say, if you see my work - or any artist's work, really - and it is not credited, please inform the artist, and ask whoever is sharing to please give proper credit.(And I should add a huge thank you to all my friends who did just that.)

Lots of other pieces are in the works this month, including quite a few custom ornaments, and one or two more canvases. Please follow my Facebook page to keep up with works in progress, studio happenings, events and the occasional giveaway. I try to post there every day or two, so it's updated far more frequently than my poor neglected blog here. ;)

Anyway, as always, thanks for visiting, and please do leave a comment if you're so inclined. I do love hearing from you!

Until next time,
♥ Carolee

Woodland Magic!

Hello, there!

I know it's been ages since I've posted, but between the holidays (all those commissioned ornaments!), and a rather full work and social schedule, well.... No excuse really, just LIFE. ;)

But I'm so excited about these new pieces I wanted to share them with you...

"Woodland Friends", originally painted on a tea chest, and now available as a print...


And "Woodland Ceilidh", acrylic on canvas, also available as a print...


To purchase either, and to view other prints, click here

I'm so pleased with these I'll be ordering a couple of prints for myself as well (the originals have both sold), and since I'm still having a bit of a love affair with this teal/turquoise/jewel toned palette, look for one more tea chest coming soon, inspired by "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

Until next time, wishing you all a Happy, Health and *magical* 2018!
