Celebrate

It's such a rainy day here today, but the frogs love it--they never stopped croaking all night long. My neighbors have a pond about 25 feet from my bedroom window and I swear, there's at least 20 frogs living in it. Which can be slightly...irritating...at 3am. Ah well.
This little painting was completed earlier this week in-between various other large paintings I'm working on at the moment. I'm madly in-love with this antique frame. It's one that I picked up at an antique store a couple months ago and haven't done anything with, for fear of not doing it justice. And then a week ago I painted a very similar simple-graphic bird scene on a plate at the ceramic studio and knew instantly what would be going in the frame. Yep--it's in the shop as I type.

That handsome little party hat makes me so happy...

And speaking of handsome...I must leave you all to get myself ready to see these fine lads.

I hope you all have fabulous weekends!

We saw DeathCab at Siren Fest a few years ago, great show :) I just love when we visit Jared's father in florida as I can listen to the little frog croaks all day long! Of course, anything but the honking of cars and street work is a welcome change!

Oh yes, I have to agree with you there--give me frogs over construction noise any day! :)

The details in that little party hat make me so happy. I'm so glad to have discovered your wonderful art by accident on Etsy!

Love the new pendant, as always your whimsical art makes me so happy. Hope you has a smashing time at the Death Cab for Cutie concert.

and now I can say.... that picture doesn't really look like them. kinda sorta.... but not. I feel like i'm part of the 'in' crowd now. HA! ;)

Thanks for the warm words, guys!

Yeah, that Death Cab pic is from a few years ago so they do look a bit different... :) Chris looks nearly the exact same though (I seriously don't think he ages).

I had to post - I purchased a few lovely sparkly ornaments from you last December, and have been eyeing an awesome pirate ship painting that you have up on your site (I'm going to buy it today :) ) and I came across your blog. Our taste in music is pretty darn similar! I've never seen Death Cab live, and boy would I love to see them play! (and with the Decemberists?!?) AWESOME!

Love your work!!! (and great taste in tunes :) )
