What a month. But after some unrelated conflicts I finally stopped by my town office in Brandon Vermont and applied for my permit to have my studio open. Paid my fee and now my studio is officially a business in Vermont.
I feel like I put the cart before the horse. You see there was someone who harassed me. Threatened me and my business and since I knew I needed to stop by Brandon’s Town Office it pushed me to go.
I always try to find positive energy in turmoil and if this individual was not inserted into my life I would not have gone yet. Also in doing so I met some wonderful people working in the town and got a chance to network in my town.
So thank you for the conflict universe. I am so grateful. A friend keeps focusing on the conflict that started this and my thought is stop, let it go. Don’t take my joy. I feel elated and joyful, positive in the recent choices I made. Mostly I am thrilled delighted and content.. Making the move back to Vermont is very right for me.
As a thank you if you order $200 or more I will send you with your order a bit of Vermont, an antique roof slate with an authentic maple leaf. The leaves amazing red, orange and salmon variations.

The sales from my Etsy shop are few and spending more time and energy does not make sense. Etsy has changed. They are not that magical place where people could find quality handmade custom work. It is filled with prints knock offs from China and substandard products. There is still the most wonderful original work found but most serious artists have moved on with their own web sites.
Since I work with FineArtAmerica and Society6 where you can buy any size print, on anything wood, paper, canvas, acrylic or metal, frame it, or buy from the large selection of home decor and accessories with a hassle free return policy at an amazing price why Etsy? Etsy charges for everything and I had to add the additional charges to the final price I charged at Etsy. This really bothered me. I felt like I was cheating my customer, though I was upfront with my policy at Etsy. Etsy customer (I have a record of you) get 10% off on select products.
I have gone back and forth with this for a year. I gave Etsy till the end of the year to prove their value. Sadly the stats proved me right. Etsy has changed. My web sites get an average of 1500 hits a day where Etsy could not break the 50 mark. At one time I had an average of 500 to 700 a day at Etsy. Etsy has stopped listing with Google. Their home page is confusing. Most of the products cater to one demographic, not mine. My clientele tends to be older, affluent and searching for custom one of a kind art and work.
Herbs and flowers are illustrated in my watercolor painted on clay board. The watercolor is subtle and makes a wonderful compliment to the ink work. The hint of sky is reminiscence of a summer sky with the herbs and flowers painted in the same subtle hues. I love the contrast of the ink and how the flowers pop.

Oh how much fun painting this sign with a twist. I took an old stretched canvas and repainted a painting of a whimsical farmhouse garden with my sign in the painting. This is the new style, a new branding for my studio. I decided being serious is overrated and fun is so much better.
Lots of prints and things at Between The Weeds over at Society6 in a bunch of sizes on paper or canvas framed or unframed. I love working with Society6 because they offer the best in printing and customer service.
