Just a peek

I've been hard at work in my new studio.

Here's a little sampler of the creations I'm working on now.
These pieces will soon be hanging on consignment in a pediatric dentist office in Baldwin Park, Orlando. Thanks for checking it out! :) - Kim

Illustration Friday- Pet Peeves

One of my pet peeves is traffic...Beep Beep Honk Honk

Oh and I thought of another pet peeve while finishing the "SMILE" sign I mentioned earlier in post TGIF.... LIES (SMILE minus the M)
Other words we could spell Limes, Slime, Slim, Mile, Me... Can you see any others?

Actual sign I am making is -


I've finally completed this sign for the reception area for a local dentist office. Each letter is adhered onto it's own 16" x 16" block and will be hung side by side. The sign in total should be over 6 feet long.

Click on photo for a bigger Smile! :) And thanks for taking a look! - Kim

Clean Sweep - A studio makeover

It was just about this time last year when we tore the roof off of our home sweet home and began "the RENOVATION"...(otherwise know as the REVOLUTION). We moved in Christmas Eve - because we were insistent to everyone we knew that we WOULD be in before Christmas 2007.
It wasn't long before the blueprint space I had dreamed about and coined "the studio loft" was filled with boxes of you name it.
My beloved studio had become the storage room before it even had a chance. The more we unpacked, the more we stored... and so on and so on. But finally on this given day (three months later - no comment) I can say with much blood, sweat and tears (stubbing toes, climbing stairs & looking through old pictures) that we no longer have a untidy storage room.... but in its place - a beautiful studio loft... Let there be ART!

So the studio loft overlooks the living room...allowing me to keep an eye on the monster and goblin down below... quick look fast while they are getting along.

Dylan & Owen sharing the "final" bedtime story.

Ohhhh and look how everything has its place - yeah that's until I start working and then its a free for all. I am not what you call a neat and organized artist... Is there even such a thing?

Oh - Did I mention my ulterior motive - It was my husband's birthday today. I decided that I would give him a cheap / but not easy present by cleaning out the office which is also housed in the studio loft. Win Win!

Now I just need to throw in some rugs and some artwork to warm the place up - Oh and peel the energy efficient stickers off the windows - (minor details) Thanks for taking the tour - Stop by again :) - Kim
