Looking Back: Thumbprint Guestbooks

I haven't been doing many of these lately, but while I was making thumbprint guestbooks, I put together a helpful diagram of how many thumbprints would fit on different standard sizes of paper.  I hope this helps clients determine what size guestbook they need for their event.  

It may be helpful to click on the image above to expand it.

Here's another way of looking at it:

And the same progression again, but vertical (sooo pinnable):

Hope this is helpful to anyone who's considering a thumbprint guestbook tree!

Abstract Delight

I had the MOST FUN making these bright, happy paintings for a recent client:

What a dream project:  the client sent me photos of their beautiful living space and let me run free with the content for the walls.

 Part of our decision-making process was determining the perfect shape.

It doesn't hurt that the client's space is filled with all of my faaaavorite colors.  Pink, orange, coral, gold, white... I'm drooling.  

 Just testing them out in my own living room...

 I love the versatility of these square abstracts.  They can hang vertically or horizontally and still look great together.

A real challenge and BLAST was working with delicate gold leaf.  I'll never get it all out of the studio... but I'm happy to have the reminder.

I bet you'll never guess the original inspiration for the composition.  It's very Richmond-centric.  If someone can guess, I'll make you an abstract painting for just the cost of shipping.  (No cheating if I already told you!)

These pieces were so FUN, I can't wait to do more!


Welcome to the Neighborhood!

May I introduce the holiday 2015 additions to AJC Estates?  :)

I was delighted to create more pieces for BWS Landscaping in Richmond, Virginia, and also add some new Cincinnati clients to the mix.

This year's pro tip: take photos as if you're a proud landscaper.  BWS takes the most fantastic source photos... probably because they always include the surrounding landscape!
