ooh la la
check out the new illustration for my blog
I am so excited. I just love it.
The illustration was done by pve design
I read about Patricia last September 1oth, to be exact.
Check out the interview on All The Best.
I knew that I recognized the artistic style,
but I could not place it.
I immediately checked out her website and was intrigued by the Vermeer-like photograph.
As I read, I had my ah ha moment:
all those cards that I saved over the years from J McLaughlin
were painted by Patricia.
Soon I contacted Patricia and told her how much I liked her work
and that I had a collection of her J McLaughlin artwork.
I especially liked the Christmas card with the big, red, puffy couch.
I wanted to commission her to design a mailer for my business,
but I had a busy show season ahead and would wait until the new year.
Not many days later I participated in a boutique show at the Hackley School and noticed another boutique vender had PVE artwork as the logo for her shoe store, The Perfect Pair
what a strange coincidence - it was meant to be
Patricia and I met at a lovely cafe in her town in January
and talked and talked -
then I put together a folder of information that Patricia used to create
this wonderful illustration & VOILA
My next project for the weekend is to figure out how to set the illustration
into the blog header
I have already consulted All Things Bright and Beautiful -
Felicity has wonderful tips for the novice blogger
but it is late and I must wait for another day
