New Directions. New Ideas.

Hi again! 2 posts today....Can you believe it? 

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about my art, my business, and the direction I want to take things.  I'm sensing an evolution and I want to share it with you!

My favorite part of the day lately is working on my "Month of the Moleskine" project. I just adore the looseness of these works. I don't have to do much planning, but just go for it with pen in hand.  Best of all, I really like the way most of these sketchbook drawings turn out. 

So here's the new idea.....

I'd like to turn these drawings into saleable products, that I could work into both my Etsy shoppe and art fair inventory. I would complete these drawings on loose paper that could then be framed or mounted on panels (like shown here). Size-wise, I would keep them small to begin - say 4"x6" - comparable to the pages of my Moleskine.  Unframed/unmounted original drawings would start at under $50.00. 

Here's where you come in...I need your feedback friends!
  • Does this new direction interest you? 
  • Would you purchase an original abstract drawing? 
  • Does the size and price point seem right? 
  • Would you prefer the drawings unmounted or mounted and ready to hang? 
Your feedback would be so greatly appreciated! Feel free to leave comments here or email me directly. I can't wait to hear what you have to say!

Ta-ta for now.


  1. Price seems right if framed and ready to hang.

  2. I think it's a good idea, it has a very clean and modern feel.

  3. Good for you for taking what you enjoying in a marketable direction. I am feeling so lost right now but working to get back on track.

    I love these new drawings - abstract is so popular right now and the flow of these is so peaceful and calming. I think that you can feel the enjoyment in these.

    Good Luck!


    1. Thanks Brandi! Thank you for being such a strong supporter over the years.

      And you, lost? Outwardly, you always look on top of your game. Your shop is filled with fab products - and you've got a whole holiday collection up and running. I think you need to give yourself a break! Cheers.
