Windy Lane Studio

When I attended grad school, I spent my free time shopping, sleeping, and basically going wherever I wanted.  I really enjoyed going to art museums and galleries by myself and roaming the halls at whatever pace I pleased.

 Years have passed since I stepped into a museum and an art gallery by myself.  But, I recently saw one of Kai Samuel-Davis' paintings on the front page of Etsy and I immediately clicked on the image.   I really don't know much about art and lack that creative gene, but I do know what I find beautiful and I find these paintings from Windy Lane Studio beautifully sorrowful.  I encourage you to click on over to the Etsy shop, and over to the gallery to view more amazing artwork!

 I've decided it's best for my life as a work at home mother to just have one massive updates per week instead of several a day.  I'm afraid it may bring less views to the shop, but switching to one massive update a week allows me more time to be a mother and wife at home.  Also, it allows me to curate some beautiful themed color palettes each week. This week has many pink and cream hues, which is very sweet for the warmer weather and works into the autumn for those of you in the southern hemisphere.

All of these items can be found in my shop and everything is actually 20% off for the month of July, so enjoy!
