We are so happy to introduce our holiday Greeting cards. In fact, we have been waiting for the holiday season to get here since July. I love sending and receiving holiday cards. With social media and text messaging being a big part of how we communicate, receiving a handwritten note brings a priceless sentiment into gift giving. These Christmas greetings are created with a child-like wonder of blankets of snow, brightly lit trimmed trees, and family feasts. We recollect watching Christmas movies, making lists and checking them twice and not being able to sleep out of sheer excitement on Christmas eve. We hope for each of you this holiday season you have a sense of home and happiness and you are surrounded by people who love you. You can find our holiday greeting cards in the shop now!
We set up this weekend at the Great Smoky Mountains On Cosby Festival with Dirt Werks Clay studio. It is always such a joy to meet new creatives and share our work with the community. Collaborating with Molly of Dirt Werks has been an excellent opportunity as well. I believe in finding like minded spirits and growing from them. I am looking forward to growing Some kind of Nature thing. We will be popping up at “Little Sprouts” Fall Festival in Maryville, TN on November 14th & The Market Square Holiday Market in Knoxville, TN on December 5th. Stop by and see us. In the meantime, Our online shop is always open. Happy Creating!
Some Kind of Nature thing is off to Trail Days! There is no greater celebration of nature and peace than the Appalachian trail! Weather you have hiked 5 miles of it or have accomplished the entire 2,200 miles; it changes you. It brings you centered and allows you to simplify and connect with nature. My artwork is reflective of my time spent in the woods. I don’t waste a lot of time on fine details or filling the whole page with color, simplifying and allowing you, the viewer, to complete the creation with what you see. When I think of the woods, I think of the smell of moss and the sounds of a distant creek or the harmony of birds. I hear the ruffling of leaves and tree branches moving together. All of these simple gifts nature gives to us- and if we are in too much of a hurry, we miss them. My goal as an artist is to reawaken that simplicity and love for nature that lies within us.
Trail days 2015 will begin Friday (May 15). I am very proud to say that my prints & greeting cards will be available at the Wander Trees tent. If you are festing this weekend, stop by and explore! Happy Trails!
