An Update

Hello there, guess what I've been doing? Lately I've been using every spare moment to work on a complete redesign of my blog. I figured it was time.. I have tossed up many ideas, and I'm still not sure what the end result will be.

I've thought about changing to wordpress, or starting a completely new blog with content that focuses on handmade/indie as a whole rather than my own artwork so much. I'm not sure which way my path is about to take career wise, but if I do keep blogging here under DeannaMaree, a blog makeover is long overdue anyway!

In other news.. I am so close to having prints available! Just in the process of finding the paper/canvas that produces the best print. Also trying to figure out how to make prints available in US letter size, and A4 as well. So keep dropping by, one day in the next couple of weeks I will start releasing prints!

I wanted to share this beautiful artwork with you today, by Jane Hill. I love her work because it combines so many of my favourite things - painting, home decor, flowers, colour, clothes, shoes... Have a look through Jane's portfolio here, or her Etsy shop here.

I'm back!

Hello, and Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a relaxing break. We had a great holiday - travelling north a long way, and spending a lot of time catching up with family and friends. The highlight of my holidays was finally getting that fancy camera I've wanted for so long! This means I am even closer to being able to offer prints of my artwork!

We're back at home now, back to work and life as normal. I've been making the most of daylight savings, and going for evening walks with my camera! We are lucky enough to have a beautiful park/reserve just down the road from our house. There are many winged and legged subjects there that are just to happy to smile for me!
