Hi there! Crabs, seashells and flowers for you :)

I recently ran into a friend on the street wearing mustard colored pants.
I came home and immediately made some paintings with it as a background. Above, is my favorite.

The assignment this month for Lilla Rogers' MATS Bootcamp was to create 
1-3 plate designs : crustaceans + pattern
The blue crab, above, probably got a bit too painterly for a plate, 
but I cleaned it up some for the final submission, which is at the bottom of post.

Meanwhile, I keep painting flowers. I think once I learned that florals tend to stay in style, 
as far as licensing and art goes, that I've given myself free rein to keep going.

Below, my set of summer plates. Click here if you'd like to see the class gallery.

June is the last month for bootcamp. 
I look forward to finding out what our final project will be next week. 
I recommend the class for anyone who wants
deadlines and a supportive group of artists with whom you can
 share opinions, resources and encouragement, if and when you need it.

And finallyThank You Chris Dunbar of Konduit Set Makers, LI City
for giving (and cutting) some nice squares of birch plywood for me.
I should have taken more!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
xo, A

You did so many beautiful florals! i'm sure you could use these for other things too! I didn't have time to spend on mine, so I would like to revisit the theme again later!
