Happy Tuesday, friends. I am absolutely amazed at the love that is pouring in for my last post. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Here's another sketch from today. Swipe for the video. It was about a 30 minute job.
My tips for today:
1. You can't make mistakes with florals. Don't throw away a half-finished drawing because you don't like a particular element.
2. Mix it up with different toned paper. If you're using a Kraft paper, get some white highlights on! They are amazingly easy and effective.
3. Try not to introduce a million different flower varieties. Pick 2-3 types and draw them in a few different ways.
Which of these tips was most useful to you? 😊😊😊
Okay! It’s time for my first ever giveaway!! The winner of this prize can choose which of these cute little lavender studies they would like to own 🌱 option 1 (shown in the second image) is Spanish lavender, and option 2 (shown in the third image) is French ☺️ they are A5 in size. I love these two paintings because they look fresh and minimalist with a decent dose of detail and intricacy at the same time. 💜
How to enter:
1. Repost an image of ANY of my artwork with the hashtag #LMSKgiveaway
2. Tag two friends in this post!

We are finally starting to get our stuff moved into the new house slowly. Among all of fun things I finally am pulling back out is some of stock including these cuties. Anyone who knows me, knows I am an avid butterfly lover. I'm talking I go head over heals for any type of butterfly. If you're not crazy about having real ones butterflies in your house my little 5x7 prints are a great option. I'm thinking about adding some different types of butterflies from the ones I currently have. Would y'all like to see some more of these cuties added this year?🦋💖

, you know that we signed a lease and got our keys to our new place last week! I’m excited to be closer to the city again, but I know I’m going to miss it up here. This peaceful, nature-filled little town was the perfect setting to find rest, welcome a baby, and plan for the future ❤️
We’re excited for the move though. I can’t wait to go to the museums again and see our friends more. And yes, we’re excited to have more than one option on Seamless haha 🙌🏻
On top of the move, I’ve been busy with Ethan and with work (mainly the website relaunch and my pattern collection). Hopefully I’ll be able to post more consistently once we get settled into our new place next month. Thanks for sticking around as I work through all these transitions. I can’t wait to find a new rhythm soon 🙂
Thankful for you. Hope you all have a great week! ❤️
I’ve been MIA for the past couple days with a lovely little stomach bug, but I’m back. Since it’s almost V-Day, here’s a cute little sketch for you. Thinking about making this into a card - swipe 💚 #minttobe
TN native flower number 3- Lance-leaved Coreopsis. This one was fun to add a 3-D effect to.

Day-21 I've been meaning to draw this Aloe plant since days, so finally here it is! Been sitting on the window sill all through the painting, somewhat the feeling of sitting on the 4th seat😅
