Decorative Focus

I love the idea of grouping several photos of something you love as a focus of your office, your den, or your living room. You bring gorgeous photos together, don’t spend a fortune, and create a happy place you and anyone who visits you will love.

Here’s an example –

I love lighthouses. I’ve been fascinated by them since I was a child. Living in Arkansas, I don’t get to see lighthouses very often. But look at these!

 

 

 

 

 

Using a variety of layered effects filters, Joe has created a unique artistic rendition of these photographs. These are open edition prints, printed on archival card stock with satin finish. The prints are 8×10 with 11×14, acid-free, white mats that are ready for framing with a standard 11×14 frames. Of course, no watermark on actual prints. Signed on the mat by the artist.

If you love pretty windows, sailing ships, flowers – see more of Joe Parskey’s photos  – to make your own collection!

Wonderful Change in Plans

Yesterday I finished cleaning up and reorganizing my art room in preparation to start working on a new theme I wanted to do for custom Christmas cards and wooden Christmas ornaments.

When I was taking a victory lap I received two orders! One was for a one-of-a-kind plaque I made for St. Pat’s Day. I have that packed up and ready to mail. The other order I received within 10 minutes of the first, was for a package of floral note cards

and a package of deckled edge floral stationery!

 

il_570xn-146025373

As I showed my husband the results of three days of trying to get more organized in my art room, I joyfully moved aside what I needed for my personal project and prepared to dive in what I love to do the most – create something I hope will bring someone a smile.

I’m so pleased to show you four more clever drawings by Bethany Kerr on Creative Artworks.  I wish I had a young child so I could fill his or her room with these!  If I were still an elementary school teacher, I would love decorating our room.  If I were lucky enough to have grandchildren, I would send some for each occasion until they had the whole collection. If I still had an office outside my home, I would feature a grouping – assuming I could choose a ‘few’ favorites – on a wall so that I could lighten my load a bit from time to time.

Click on any of these links to purchase. From there you can click on “All Posters – Prints by Bethany Kerr” to see the whole collection!
