Thank you to Jane

Recently, Jane Farr had her first giveaway celebrating the one year anniversary of her blog, A Place to Flourish. I was fortunate enough to be the winner of that giveaway. Here are just a few pics of some of the wonderful items.

Thanks Jane! I always look forward to your posts.

Series of small canvases

I am just starting a series of 5"x5" canvases. They will be flowers of different kinds and in sets of 3 or 4. The sets may have the same flowers or maybe just the same color scheme but different flowers to tie them together. These will be painted with watercolors. I have prepped the canvases with absorbent ground so the watercolor will not just run or rub off.

This sunflower is my first canvas. I love sunflowers; they're just so happy.

New Etsy site

I have been thinking about opening an etsy shop for some time. This week I finally fully embraced the idea and have created the MillerLine Etsy shop. I hope you will be able to stop by and look around. There are several prints and journals at the shop, with more on the way soon.

Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions.

Photography by Webster Miller

My brother is so talented. I know every little sister probably says this about her big brother, but in my case it's true. :)

Seriously, I am proud of my brother. He is a photographer in the Dallas, Texas area. This is his second career and man has he found his gift. Recently, he came home to Louisiana to take some portraits on location and, fortunately, I was able to have the time to assist him. His set up is impressive to say the least, and the results speak to this. But as with any creative art, the right tools help, but without the knowledge and natural eye, that equipment will only take a person so far.

Anyway, enough of my rambling. Check it out and see for yourselves here. www.WebsterMillerPhotography.com
