Latest updates from my art studio ....

Hello my lovelies,

As February is almost over and so many things are happening in my studio, I feel like my blog is not getting as much attention as I'd like.  I'm busy traveling, doing custom paintings and working on new collaborations with my clients.  So, I will have to be very brief with my posts and latest updates.

More new original paintings inspired by my forever love of Paris are posted in my shop: lanasart.etsy.com  Get a slice of Paris for your wall! These new large prints are absolutely amazing ... love the texture, colors and the look stays very true to the original!  I'm so excited to add them to my shop - for a limited time only!

My IG circle is growing (most of the time I find it even more convenient than any other social media tool, I don't even know why it took me so long to get started :) ... with new daily updates @lanasartstudio lanasartstudio.blogspot.com

Commissions have always been a part of my art life, although I'm doing fewer and fewer due to my work load at the moment.  As a painter for 25 years I've had numerous clients (from larges churches, investment companies, largest collectors of art, etc.) and I never take for granted the love and joy these projects bring and the loyalty of my many returning clients.  I would like to share a recent email with you here and I must admit it brought tears to my eyes (I'm very sentimental if you have not guessed yet:) "I received my two prints late yesterday.  Thank you SO very much!  I love them both;  I was beyond delighted to receive "tulipmania" in a larger size!!!!!  I waited all January for you to return from vacation!!!!!  I had wanted that print for ages!!!!!  I absolutely love all of your work, and even have some things in my cart to order in March!  I am a (......) young interior decorator, who is trying to "do" a bedroom on  a budget!!!!!  Not an easy task in Arkansas!!!!!  At any rate, thanx again and you will be seeing another order soon!!!!!  -V.

Last but not least, I'm so excited to give you a hint of another new collaboration with White House Black Market for their Fall Collection, but this is in the process of development, so stay tuned for more updates on this very exciting project....

As always, thank you for visiting and please be kind to leave me your comment,
with love, Lana

  4. Wow, you are productive! I have been hearing this from a lot of artists, that it's so much easier to share something quuickly on IG (than sit down and write a blog post, for example).
