Gah! I feel like I have been neglecting my blog <sniff, sniff>.

Well, as previously mentioned, we (the husband and I) are busy with moving preparations. I have been squeezing in a little creative time, though. For instance, the other night I was working on a rain-inspired piece, while listening to “Rain is Falling” (ELO), as it was pouring outside.

My response was to stare blankly for a minute, with my mouth open. And laugh at the craziness of that coincidence.

Also, I worked on another piece prior to the rain one:

The title “Leaf S’plosion” comes to mind, but only because I was in a goofy mood when I thought of it. I wanted to play around with color, pattern, and using found texture. I like the feel of it- I think I will keep exploring this way of working.

Now that we’re moving, I thought it would be a good time to move my blog, also. I have a portfolio site (www.sarahpo.com). As you can see by visiting, it is not yet complete. But, it will be the new home for my blog.

I’ll be sure to stay in touch with the blogs I follow and my awesome followers on the new one. Hopefully, I’ll be able to transfer this one to it; we’ll see how that goes.

Anywho, I will keep you all updated on that. Thank you so much for taking an interest in my work. It really means a lot to me. It can be a lonely, weird situation, making art in a little studio by yourself. The feedback and support from the blogosphere is wonderful! :)

Bye for now,

Sarah

Here’s another one:


I wanted something fresh and pretty for my wall. I am going to be moving out of state in the next month (yowza!). It’s got me thinking about my new apartment, studio space, etc. – and how to make it awesome.

I am such a nerd- I’ve already started sketching out the layout, based on the floorplan I got from my new landlord. I just love thinking about it!

I’ve been working on a couple new pieces this week. Here’s one of them:

 

This squirrel is so cute, I wish he was my friend. We could talk about the weather, the status of acorns, neighborhood dogs, and kite flying . . .

I’ll have to share the other piece soon, hopefully next week sometime.

See you later!

My Simple Shoes { purple, blue, awesome }

This post is a bit bittersweet for me. I adore my Simple Shoes, but unfortunately, they are no longer making them. Which means, unless I can find a replacement pair on Zappos, I’ll have to patch mine up until they are absolutely kaput. So far they are holding up well – hopefully I can make them last.

I finished up my whale illustration, and it is now available in my shop as an art print!

It is a 5 x 7 print (artwork size is 4 x 6). This is my first print working with my colored pencil drawings, and I’m really happy with how it came out. :)

I made a little Easter card, which is available as a free download! You can use it as a place card, note card, or tuck it in your Easter baskets.


I recommend printing on a good card stock while using the matte photo settings on your printer. (Also, the download doesn’t include “To: Michael, From: Abbie.” That middle section is blank, so you can fill in your own names or messages.)

Please note, this download is for personal use only.

The download is available here:

Thank you, I hope you enjoy it! And Happy Easter :)
