Where My Art Lives Now pt.3

Pink "girl" and "cat" paintings in Carey's beautiful kitchen in Ohio.

Every so often one of my lovely patrons posts/sends me a photo of my art in their home. 
I just love seeing where my art lives now...and thought I'd share a few of the photos via my blog.
It has been over two years since my last post like this (previous posts here and here) and I've collected a ton of great, new pics. Rather than make one giant blog post I've decided to start sharing them via this here Facebook album: "Where My Art Lives Now".

Gregor & Lena's kitchen in Germany.
"Gentle Giant" prints available in my shop:

Stop by for a look if you love peeping into other people's homes as much as I do. ;0)

"Horse" print in Launa's room. This is my cousin Mindy's sweet little girl.
This print is available in my shop.

Got one to share? Send it to me at

Robyn may have a bit of a problem...and I love her for it!
