tiny rabbits - no. 12

tiny rabbit no. 12 dons a cranberry-colored rain slicker in preparation for the forecasted rains over Memorial Day Weekend. I realize that the weather has been far worse in other parts of the country, but folks up here in the Pacific Northwest (myself included) are pretty cranky with the long run on gray skies and cool weather since late summer of last year. Ugh!

In happier news, I've been busy at work in the studio:
  • Finishing up a few of my "dustbowl" paintings + prints
  • Working on a painting for an upcoming equine art show alongside my girls
  • Drawing a handful of original pen + ink "art is my compass" prints
  • And, last but not least, making progress on my oil paintings.
Stay tuned for more shop updates. My goal is to list new items by mid-June.

Thank you for all your support!

Cheers, Mandy

sneak preview

my dustbowl series

pencil and ink sketches; coffee + tea stained papers

salvaged wood for a future canvas

Here's a sampling of the art I've been working on and plan to officially unveil next month once school is out for both daughters. Sketching, painting, natural dyes/colorants....each have brought me happiness.

tiny rabbits - no. 11

tiny rabbit no. 11 is ordinarily a quiet, well-mannered rabbit named Molly. But not today! We found Molly playing with her mama's make-up. We find it charming. What do you think?
