Linen to Linen and Paint to Print

People have been asking me about the creative process behind my decorative pillows. It's been awhile since I explained it so here's a quick recap: [caption id="attachment_7999" align="alignleft" width="500" caption="I paint..."][/caption] [caption id="attachment_7998" align="alignleft" width="425" caption="then have my painting printed onto linen."][/caption] [caption id="attachment_8002" align="alignleft" width="500" caption="and sewn into pillow covers...
