Submit your orders for summer!

Just finished up the last of my commissions before my six week hiking trip! And I’m excited to get back at ’em at the end of April. Don’t be shy about submitting art commissions while I’m gone. It would make a great gift for those animal lovers with summer birthdays! My husband while be monitoring my email, so even if I’m not able to check regularly, he will be able to get back to you in a timely manner. Thanks, everyone! Advertisements

A couple memos

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  A couple things:  First, just a reminder that there are two weeks left to take advantage of my January promotion! All custom pet portrait orders made in January receive a ten percent discount.  PLUS, you’ll be helping out some sweet, sweet dogs and cats. I’m donating ten percent of January proceeds to Secondhand Hounds, a Minnesota-based animal rescue organization dedicated to giving as many fresh starts as they can! And one more memo: If you need a painting by March or April, I encourage you to contact me ASAP. I’ll be gone on a six-week hiking trip…

She takes the cake.

Rococo fashion from the 1780s, just before the French Revolution, inspired this painting. It might look like an elaborate Halloween costume, but around 230 years ago this is the look you’d aspire to, permitting you had the means to do so. Rococo fashion is dramatic evidence that the aristocracy was totally disconnected from the rest of the world, and there’s no need to strain your brain wondering why that Robespierre guy was so pissed off.

Brookings Summer Arts Festival

Huge thanks to everyone who checked out my booth at the Brookings Summer Arts Festival in Brookings, South Dakota. It was my first time as an art fair vendor. You all made it such an awesome experience. Also, mammoth-sized thanks to my parents, Randy and Joyce Meyer from RJ Meyer Arts, for all their support and wisdom getting ready for the fair. ♥ Elizabeth
