I can’t stop looking at it. I hope to catch Adam Bateman’s work in person, as it looks phenomenal. The linear quality and textures are just so graphic!

You can peruse his website here: There is also a bit about him and an exhibit of his work at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center that you can read about here. Thanks for sharing your work, Adam. 

20×200 and Vines

Vines I


Vines II

Where are my weekly journal quilts? I’ve been busy and I’m a bit backlogged on journal quilts, which I will fix up this weekend. For some visuals for now, both of these pieces were created while making a custom order. I (thank you!) was asked to create a custom 5×7 piece with the imagery of vines. I created one that I loved, and then second guessed myself and created one more that I thought was a bit more vinous and true to theme so my customer would have another option. Vines II is available for $30 here in my Etsy shop.

What I REALLY wanted to post about today is the 20×200 blog and shop by Jen Bekman.  It’s worse than in obsessiveness for me. Instead of just a techy hot deal item selling out, it’s affordable ART! I often feel like art is a luxury to purchase when our house is FILLED and I mean FILLED with my art, so a $20 print is something I feel I can justify to myself. Anyway, I’m on their mailing list so I got notified of today’s small edition and was able to snatch one up of More Books by Mickey Smith before they sold out. Thanks for sharing your art with 20×200, Mickey. Go and get on the mailing list!

ACEO Sky I, Naomi S. Adams, 2008

I created a showcase of artists on Etsy’s Treasury West. I really enjoy running across new artists on Etsy and being able to purchase a small print or ACEO to love. You can view the showcase here.

This is a way that allows members to share creations in other shops that they enjoy. Some of the pieces were created by my team members on the Etsy Texas Crafters Team. This is a time limited display that will end on Sunday morning, so check it out before then!
