What have I been up to beyond making a human? Painting, bien sur! Here is a roundup of the latest hand-painted letters… now, finally, listed in the shop. All are personalized with the name of the recipient.
Les Passages: A letter about the magical covered streets of Paris. Created for chilly January.
Bon Marché : This one is about the hypnotic wonderland that is the Paris department store. It was created for festive December.
Les Crêpes: A French version of Mardi Gras/Pancake Tuesday… as if you need an excuse to eat a crêpe. Created for February.
And a few Travel Letters as well…
Verona, Italy: A new perspective on balconies and the secrets behind them, plus an ode to Romeo and Juliet’s famed perch.
Flanders, Belgium: A letter about the toughest train ride I ever took.
Las Vegas, USA: Sometimes you love it, sometimes you hate it. There is nothing neutral about Vegas. It’s the black licorice of towns.

The grinning hath begun. Weeeeeee!
