STYLECOURT AND THE STAMPS

Photo courtesy of Style Court
Thanks to Courtney Barnes of Style Court for her mention of my new stamps featuring my painting of her chair. As always, she did a lovely job of styling a photo that includes a stack of books and some beautiful peonies with my stamp design on a letter. Courtney does NOT get paid for mentioning my work, nor does she receive royalties off the stamps sold (as the artist, I retain the copyright to my work). She simply does it because she is an exceptionally kind person and a very supportive friend. This chair is her logo for StyleCourt, and is one of my most popular paintings to date. I owe it all to Courtney's eye for design and her superb styling of her chair and books that she commissioned me to paint. It's currently everyone's favorite stamp in my gallery! No doubt she could have a very successful second career as a photo stylist!
If you would like a similar painting done of something you cherish, be it a chair, room, child or pet, I would be delighted to take on the commission and can even provide you with your own custom stamps for correspondence. It's a great idea for a gift as well. Please feel free to contact me for details here.

What a terrific idea!

And I love those flowers. Peonies are my FAVORITE. I have some in my kitchen and living room right now.

So glad you stopped by, Mary-Laure! Thank you! Aren't peonies the best? Courtney always has such beautiful flowers...

This is just amazing, I love it! I really want to make something like this (someday, when my spending freeze is over). I love how personal it is!!! And how nice of Courtney to do this, too.
