It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

This is a first of painting in the "First Impressions" series of paintings I am working on right now.  I plan to have one for each of Jane Austen's works.  On this piece you can see Mr.Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet and the opening line of Pride and Prejudice.

I know I am stepping away from my usual bookish art, but I wanted to do something green and springy this week.  So here are my latest topiary pieces.

Catherine Poster take 2

I made another version of Northanger Abbey adventure quote.  But this time I made a mistake and wrote "do" instead of "will".

Upcycled Persuasion box

I found this box at a second hand store and even though it was tiny, it was so cute I had to do something with it. I painted a miniature watercolor of Anne standing on the Cobb in Lyme and decoupaged it onto the top of the box, on the front of the box I painted Captain Wentworth's ship and the inside of the lid is decorated with the words from his letter "You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope."
