When I went to purchase the domain name "Bay Studios" a few days ago, I realized it was already spoken for, so that meant that Mary Beth and I needed to come up with a new name. After sending a few ideas her way, we both agreed on Ebb Tide Studios.
I like it, and since both she and I live on the water, it seemed fitting to have a water related name. So from here on out we will be known as Ebb Tide Studios. For now we won't have our own website, but we're hoping that will change sometime in the next year. We would love to offer up different goods with our artwork on them, like guest towels, dishes, and fabric, but that's a ways down the road.
We are super excited though, and we've been plugging away on some artwork for autumn. Both of these images will be for sale as wrapped canvases very soon so we would love to have your feedback on them.
We wanted to capture the essence of Fall, and with this second one we were really going for a vintage feel. I wanted to create something that had an old oilcloth feel, so I even added the golden checkerboard background reminiscent of tablecloths from the 40s and 50s.
Along with the new artwork, we've made some good progress on the house stuff. The guest room closet is now neat as a pin...well as neat as it will every be, and the black cabinet in the living room has a brand new look that I'll share with you very soon.
We have bags of stuff to drop off at the donation shop tomorrow, and one of my dear friends is taking a black and cream toile bedding set off of my hands, so we are moving in the right direction.
And I would like to give a special shout out to my friend Papa Jim. You may recall that he had surgery awhile ago and has had a very long road back to recovery. Today is his birthday, and I know both he and his family are happy to have him home and to be celebrating his special day together.
Change can be a very good thing sometimes! I hope you are each having a lovely weekend and that whatever changes you have on the horizon are for the better!
If you would be interested in either of the images above as a wrapped 12 x 12 wrapped canvas (other sizes are also available), you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and more info!
