my husband and i are going to a.c. in a couple weeks to celebrate his 30th birthday. i love everything about atlantic city from the cheesy decor at the taj mahal to the salt water taffy. the shopping is great and there are even some pretty amazing restaurants. look at these vintage post card i found. don't those people on the beach look hot in their suits? quite a change from what you see on the beach today. I personally can not wait to wear my black and white polka dot bikini.

it was made with a single piece of linoleum using the "reductive" method of printmaking. there are many stages involved in this printing technique depending on how many colors you are working with. at each stage the block is carved, inked up with a different color and printed, reducing the surface areas and destroying the block in the process. because of this method only a small number of prints can be made with a single block and once you have moved onto the next stage there is no going back. i made only 9 prints of "the kiss" so only 8 of them are available for sale (one is hanging in my office). here are a few things i was inspired by when making my "kiss"
henri de toulouse lautrec- the kiss
i am in love with the neckaces at white owl. it was the very first thing i ever purchased on etsy and i wear it with everything!
i can't wait until my first set of prints are ready to go. here is a sneak peek...
