I'm so excited to be offering prints in an online shop now! While I very much enjoy designing for and with companies, it really is nice to just make pretty things that can go in frames sometimes, you know?
So, first up, lets talk about the Wildflower Tangle print. I first drew this design in an oval shape...
I drew it for myself, with no end-use for licensing in mind, which I hadn't done in a while. I'd been hearing from a few companies that they wanted to see anything except a floral*, which was disheartening, because I mostly draw florals! It was refreshing to draw some flowers again since I hadn't drawn any in months. I thought pieces of the original would be great for framing a quote, and I've always loved this part of Georgia on My Mind, so I made this new layout. This print is framed at the foot of our stairs right now, but I think it would be nice as part of a gallery wall too.
And speaking of the virtues of the Gallery Wall...
If you are like me, you may be asking yourself, "How do I get away with decorating with florals when I live with a guy?" Florals are my favorite type of pattern, to draw, to wear, and (as much as I can get away with, living with a male whose favorite colors lean decidedly toward gray or army green) decorate with. The size of these prints are great for a gallery wall, and gallery walls are a really good way to have a floral print in your house without your husband turning up his nose. If your husband is like mine, he will be more concerned with your lack of care about wall anchors and the amount of holes you hammered into the wall, allowing the floral print to exist in peace.** Good luck and Godspeed!
*a dream client licensed this very soon after I drew it, lesson learned? Just draw what you want. Life is too short.
**This conversation for sure happened. I still don't know how to use wall anchors. Life is too short?
