Mediums – Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens and Prismacolor Verithin Coloured Pencils inside a 9×9 inch Fabriano Quadrato Artist Journal
Something happened over the last month and my handpainted boxes began selling on Etsy. This makes me smile as I love painting little boxes to hold your precious items in.
I’m setting up a painting station in the living room directly between the sunroom to the right and studio on the left just beside the bookshelf. I need an area that can get messy with needing to be cleaned up.
Although, I have a large studio every inch of it is used for something other than messy creative work. I have the computer desk for the 27″ iMac; the printing table with two printers, the drafting table which is used as my cutting and packaging area, all of which can not have water, paint or bits of paper, sandpaper, wood, dust or paintbrushes hanging around on their surfaces.
So, I’m expanding into the living room today and I’ll be painting directly underneath an illustration I created years ago entitled:
The Old Men in the Tree
who’ll grant you a wish…
Each box set is listed in the Handpainted boxes and objects section of my art shop.

I couldn’t bare to throw out all the wallpaper we took off the walls. Much of it came off in large sheets; big enough to draw upon. I rolled it up, bagged it and saved it. The bottom most layer of wallpaper dates back to Circa 1920.
The Original is listed.
All were created using Pilot pens, Faber Castel India Ink and Prismacolour coloured pencils on Strathmore petaled fine art paper.
