Colorado National Monument

Colorado National Monument
Monument Colorado photo by Erika Firm How pretty are these lichen covered rocks in Colorado National Monument?!? Watercolor Painting of Monument Colorado by Erika Firm One of the perks of working with Melissa at Revel & Co. is fun visits ... um, I mean work trips ... to Palisade, Colorado.

We also came up with a whole new product line, which we'll be launching at the Las Vegas Market later this summer. Eeeeek. So exciting! Continue reading

Ajax-IkeaLeafCurtains-Green Ajax-IkeaLeafCurtains-Closeup Abstract Green and Yellow rug by Erika Firm from Society 6 Ajax, my fluffy sweet cat, usually keeps me company while I'm working in my home studio. Sometimes it's hard to get work done when he's just staring at me like this! And the amazing leaf curtains? I wish I could take credit for designing the pattern, but they're IKEA. I did design the green abstract rug, though! You can pick one up in lots of different sizes in my Society6 shop.

Emerald Green Abstract

Emerald Green Abstract
Revel & Co. 2016 Green-abstract-surface-design-54 Green-abstract-surface-design-60 Green-abstract-surface-design-69 "Johns Island Sunday" was inspired by the salt marshes after the rain. Green-abstract-surface-design-71"Mossy North Side" was inspired by Johns Island woods after a series of storms. All the crazy mosses, lichens and fungi were popping up in our yard. Revel & Co. 2016 "Wind Break" was inspired by a particularly windy and rainy day. This is my interpretation of my backyard pond.
