Summer is for Hand Painted Wicker.
When I saw this little wicker bag while perusing Parfois, I knew it would be a fun piece to paint for my monthly 'artist folly' series.
Shortly thereafter, we visited beautiful El Escourial, the vacation home of the Spanish king, just outside of Madrid. The blush pink China Roses were in bloom and made a stunning backdrop against the bag.
I hope to work with more brands and develop artist collaborations with them. In the meantime, this is a great way to envision my work on wearable things like bags.

Cheers to the Summer as it winds down- I hope you have enjoyed little wicker, some roses, and some art during this wonderful season.
