New in the Art Studio [+ the Giveaway Winner!]

In My Heart 

I've been getting busy in my art studio over the past few days -- probably because the temperatures went down enough so that I could be upstairs during the day without sweating buckets.  I've never been so happy to see fall-ish weather!  I even saw my first fallen yellow leaf today . . . perhaps a sign of an early fall?  I wouldn't mind!

I overcame my fear about making art while pregnant and finished the above piece.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I was a bit nervous about the color combination, but it seems to work nicely.  It's called "In My Heart," and the words winding around mama and baby read, "You've always had a home in my heart . . ."  You can nab a beautiful fine art print of this piece here, although I'm still deciding whether I want to part with the original or not. 


I've also been working on some more wood-mounted prints to put in the shop.  The last one got snapped up fast!  I love mounted prints because they require no effort on the part of the owner -- namely, no matting and framing!  When I buy art, it often takes me months to finally display it in our home because I find the process of framing so daunting. 


Now for the giveaway winner!  Thank you all so much for helping me to celebrate my art shop's first birthday.  I can't believe it's already been a year!  As for the winner . . . it is Sarah Ski!  Sarah, please send me an email at epiphanyartstudio (at) zoho (dot) com with your mailing address, and I'll get your print in the mail right away.

Thanks, everyone!  I hope that you all have a beautiful weekend.  And watch for those wood-mounted prints to hit the shop soon!
