A new addition arrived at the #vandenberghaus today! I've been wanting to purchase a handmade woven wall hanging for awhile but struggled to find one that fit our style. I discovered @thelittlekiss and immediately loved her work. Her story is really special too. She's a single mama with three kiddos and stage 4 breast cancer. She began weaving as a way to find peace while convalescing from treatments and broken back bones (the horrible way she discovered she even HAD cancer!) Katrina has the most generous spirit and wants to share her story of hope and strength with others by creating these beautiful works of art. Check out her work (link in my profile!) AND take 15% off with the code HEYKATIE15 through October 31! Send me a message if you'd like to come see her work in person and sip some tea with me...she also blends organic teas which she sent to me too!
I can’t stop searching photos of the deserts, cacti, and plateaus. This isn’t an ideal time for such inspiration but the blush tones and simple shapes are really talking to me. And keep talking to me! I may have to put this on pause until after the holiday season... or see how I can adapt them into a beautiful, representational series. What do you guys think?
I have a nice little landscape for you. Oil on board, with a nice warm lacquer finish... $180 (“moved into the new place now I need to pay for it” pricing!) message me or email franklin@fultonmarketgallery if you want this.
My Etsy shop is restocked with recent originals, prints, and note cards! For the next 3 days everything is 15% off! Code: LETSGOEVERYWHERE. If you've followed for a bit you know I don't advertise much...don't want to make that my focus. But here's a little Christmas shopping incentive;) 🎄🎁link in bio
How is your weather today? The weather here turned cold and rainy, making us not want to #adult today. We totally think @vandifair has the right idea to snuggle in bed with a puppy and a warm pumpkin spice coffee. 🍂🎃🎃🍂(📷 courtesyof @vandifair)
Guys! What a great day! Thank you everyone for coming and supporting all the makers and loving our work! Couldn't have done it without the lovely @californiaray @jessica_franco_bpp. Thank you for the fab posts built by @saunders_dave and thanks for the lend of the crate @hollowedearth 😊
SHE HAS ARRIVED ❤️❤️❤️ not in her forever home yet, because we are about to have a little painting done, but had to share her :) if you aren’t already following the fabulous Artist and urban horticulturalist @alina.fassakhova you need to check her out! This photo doesn’t begin to capture the incredible color...
I fell in love with at least three of her pieces, have a feeling that more may find their way into our home down the road....
thank you, Alina - every time I step into the foyer I have to stop and look at her! X
When I found out I would be in Greenville at the same time as @broaden_goods had a pop up shop, I knew I didn't want to miss it! Nice to meet you Tessa and Nathan:) And this gorgeous woven blanket's coming home with me 😍💙

Initial sketch for a new still life. 8x8" of some snapdragons and mums I picked from my back yard. (Most of my flowers got badly nipped in the first frost of the year but these troopers don't mind the cold! 😁👍) Also a couple Melrose apples from our neighbor's tree and a yellow apple we picked at a friend's' ranch. #stilllifepainting
I can’t recall this ones title...but the colors in it get me every time. This is a lightweight charmeuse (satin silk) that has the most beautiful drape and shimmer...that shimmer, wow! DM me if you have to have it now. Should be on my website later this afternoon! #wearcolor
Don't you just love this room??! When Katharine of @reedacanthus came to us and asked for a custom colorway of our pagoda prints, we were so excited! We love how the pagodas add a subtle pop of orange to this beautifully designed room. Tangerine and blue are such a gorgeous color palette! 😍are you a designer? We love working on custom projects for you and your clients!

"Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working" - Picasso • • this couldn't be more true by experience. There are so many external and individual factors that influence and inspire artists and makers, but they can't be internalized without persistent, hard work. But when the two come together? Magic.
What do you do to procrastinate? Tell us! As for me, y'all, I shouldn't be in the studio today. The house is a disaster, I have a million things I should be doing on the computer - like running the business end of all of this. You know, details. But I snuck in the studio today because I NEED it. *
I've always loved creating, but it wasn't until the past couple years that I understood having the need to create. In high school I got burned out in art. I had people telling me that you can't make a living as an artist, it just can't be done. There weren't a whole lot of good examples of working artists out there who weren't also teachers. I never knew about the entire industry surrounding the art world and the millions of ways to make a living by creating. *
But now, creating is almost a compulsion. There are all of these ideas in my head and not enough time in this lifetime to pursue them all. It is beautiful, and joyous, and terrifying to have so much inside asking to get out. Thank you for joining me on this journey. 😁
