Well, what can I say. When I’m not painting pine cones, I’m painting mushrooms, and when I’m not painting mushrooms, I’m painting pine cones. This week is a mushroom week!¬†

I’m learning a lot with these little subjects and mushrooms are really incredibly fascinating, so I’m having a lot of fun while I’m learning.

Incidentally, I wanted to try painting from a real mushroom instead of always using pictures. At my favorite organic grocery store, I selected the most beautiful shiitake I bought (under the amused eye of the cashier who must not sell a lot of mushrooms in packs of one…), brought it home and carefully put it in the fridge waiting for my next painting session… I must have waited too long because my beautiful mushroom was all shrivelled after 2 days in the fridge! I still tried to paint it, but I will have to repeat the experience with a real fresh mushroom!

This week, I expended my office to have more space for a packing station! Orders are starting to come in (I’m so happy and grateful!), and I just couldn’t pack on my painting table anymore. So I did a bit of creative home design and used my teaching filing cabinet and an old door to create this beautifully functional space. I even found a space for some of my favourite artwork by Illulina and Heikala. I’m so pleased to have more space to pack your orders and also to paint and create.

New at the boutique

More Christmas products have made their way to the store!

I really struggled with this poinsettia painting, but in the end, I think it looks good! It’s available as a thank you card set and as a sticker sheet.

I had so much fun painting this little pinecone! Pinecones have always been really intimidating to draw to me, so I’m happy to have faced my fears and made this cute little thank you card!
