I received some happy feedback from a customer yesterday along with a picture of their adorable nursery. That's one of my name banners hanging above the crib:) So cute. I love the crib and simplicity of the entire room. It definitely has a coziness to it as well.
LOVE it and thanks Theresa for sharing Piper's room with us:).
Don't forget....30% off in my shop with code NOV30.
Hello everyone:) I feel like sometimes I have to make a grand entrance when I appear on this blog because I'm not consistent about it. I'm just an extremely busy artist with three growing boys who are involved in everything from sports to friends. They are getting older, 15 14 & 11, to be exact.
And my 15 yr old, who's about to be 16, will be driving his own car within a couple of months. :/
I've become very busy with this art life of mine which I love. Besides painting for Mariah Carey and Nick Canon, I've been doing work for many other people also. I guess I'm really loving the fact that my customers and the rest of the world, are really wanting to buy art for themselves. I LOVE that. Art makes people feel good regardless of the price. Their is definitely a connection between a great art find and it's soon to be owner:).

Taking a break to brag about my new printer! I love it, it makes the most beautiful prints, and you will love them:). I finally splurged a few months back on my new Epson R2880. Used with archival pigment inks that are guaranteed to last a lifetime. These beautiful babies are printed on Hahnemuhle paper. It's an eco friendly paper also that's made out of sugar cane...love that!
I now offer over 100 different prints in my shop. If you have a minute of two, you can check them out here.
It's Sunday and I'm off to a Kidney benefit today that I've donated some art to.
Hello everyone.....it's been a while and i hope everyone realizes that I've been very busy. I obviously put my clients first before I blog since I'm barely on here. It's hard but the orders are stacking:).
Creating gorgeous nurseries in LA Ca. is was she does best. Everything, from her own line of furniture, decor, linens, drapes, and accessories......she brings it all in. She is the manufacturer which is even cooler.
So when Mariah asked for Gail to create her nursery for her two little babies.....Gail was so sweet to think of me to do Mariah's dreamy ceiling. I also painted the window and the scene inside for her. It was a pretty garden scene with little lambs in it. But, after I left, Mariah loved the ceiling so much that she wanted the clouds to be in the window. so she hired a local artist in LA to copy my ceiling. I think the garden scene actually would have been pretty in the room, but the dreamy sky...is breath taking:). It was an amazing experience and met some amazing people. Along with Mariah and Nick themselves.
I also was happy to here that my ceiling is her favorite part!......Thanks Mariah!
I snapped this photo this morning of my studio. As many of you know and those who don't, it sits in the left section of my home, here in Fort Worth Texas. We are experiencing snow and ice this past week, which keeps me all tied up between entertaining my boys and filling orders. Speaking of orders..these name banners below are a couple of some new ones being shipped out. I also have new characters that I introduced at some trade shows last week and were a huge hit. I'll be loading them on my ETSY shop over the weekend....so stay tuned. Check out the new cowboy boot, this one is a girl version, but a boy one is available as well. The bumble and the heart are great too. Wait till you see the others I have...camper, fox, yellow bear, apple, pear ,and a few more. These name banners can be ordered through my ETSY shop. Or simply contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Have a great super bowl weekend! Marnie V.
Just letting all my customers know to expect a 3-5 day delay on any orders that have shipped within the past 3 days. UPS and the postal service have notified me to let me know, since I'm a frequent customer. Texas, the Fort Worth area that I live in is under ice, which makes driving conditions horrible and in some areas not possible. I can't even ship out any more orders until this Friday..maybe. OK...now I'll go back to painting and hibernating. Thanks for understanding- Marnie V.
What's Hot now- these adorable name banners are flying out of my studio! My stores are doing well with these little babies...and at a great new low price! Below is a photo of how they come when delivered :). You can also purchase these off my ETSY site.
What's new to my ETSY site are these paintings below....so cute! I have more in the series coming...so check the shop often this week. Hawk is starting to travel.
I'm busy preparing for two shows at this very moment and through next week. One is in Dallas and the other in Los Angeles. Show preparation is extremely exhausting and exciting all in one. The excitement honestly is what keeps me going. I have some new products that I'm introducing to my stores and I'll post some pictures next week. They and the rest of the world are going to love them! Well, I'm off to Dallas today to repaint the showroom wall and start setting up....start...I only said start...much to do.
First Original Painting for 2011-" I Love My Moose "
Hello everyone! Happy New Year! It's been a while since I've been on the blog but it's great to be back. We had a busy holiday and was surprised with family house guests....it was great. I love my family and was so happy to see them this holiday season. I'm also very excited for 2011! It's busy for me as I'm still working at the swim school and preparing for two shows for my wholesale accounts. And my ETSY..of course. I have lots of new little paintings that I'll be loading daily and I'm very excited to introduce many more large paintings of Hawk and his friends. Hawk is going to start traveling! That's right! His first stop is New York...I can't wait to show you what I've been working on. I'll also be delivering new art to some galleries in which those will be posted for anyone to purchase as well.
My website www.jaustinryan.com is also being updated. It actually almost got hacked into and google stopped...thanks Google! So now we are updating the entire website! Hooray!
Please stay tuned and I'm off to get ready for the Rose Bowl today...TCU baby..GO FROGS!
