I recently got this original painting back after Liv+work closed down her storefront, and I was secretly really happy to have it back again! I've been dreaming of painting a set of house plants and wanted to use this painting as part of it, and now I can! New card set coming soon(ish... as soon as my boys let me paint the other 5 😂) #lavenderandclover #illustration #illustrator #watercolor #watercolorpainting #watercolorplants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #houseplants #kansasartist #midwestartist
I sorted out some original paintings for a facebook sale and possibly also IG stories. Idk feeling crazy! Coming soon. (Aka as soon as my boys give me the chance to photograph and list them all, watch for more info)

Custom portraits are one of my very favorite things to paint! Trying to figure out how to make someone look like themself without their face is a really fun challenge to tackle! I will be starting to open up a few slots a month for custom paintings in February! Message me to get on my waitlist OR watch Facebook and Instagram for an announcement! <3 Abbey Kirk

Emmet's current favorite thing is to point out the bumble bees and butterflies in his new Christmas books. One book has a WHOLE page full of animals and even then they are the first and only thing he points out on his own. I've started looking into insect homes for our yard for the summer and how to grow a butterfly garden. We're super stoked for nicer weather and yard work again!

Working on my todo list now that I'm getting started again. On it is a new fabric, a new card set, and a few new pins... I'd better get started!
Happy Thursday Friends!

Another one of the paintings I did for Christmas gifts this year! This one was for my sister, Hannah, and her Fiancé, Kent! Emmet is pretty stoked about adding Uncle Kent to the family (and of course, so am I). #lavenderandclover #watercolorportrait #womenofillustration #artistsoninstagram #watercolor #illustrator #illustratiom #watercolorpainting #couplesportraits #kansasartist #midwestartist
Emmet learned his planets this past week and now he'll be sitting at the table and start listing them off. It is my favorite thing (especially how he says Jupiter- so cute) and it's making me miss my space fabric. I think there might still be a few baby items left at one of my stockists!

I spy one of my cactus blankets in the beautiful photo by @sallycavanaugh of @happyhecticlife ‘s nursery for her sweet new baby! Our blankets are super soft for snuggling and beautiful enough to have on display!

A close up of Emmet's Christmas painting. Since October, we've been building up a playlist of Emmet's favorite songs; Don't Stop by Foster the People, Hard Worker by the Avett Brothers, I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons, Free Fallin' by Tom Petty, Let it Be by The Beatles, Three Little Birds by Bob Marley, and so on. And it all started with my dad singing him Rocket Man by Elton John while my parents watched him when I was set up at Fall Festival at Bethel College ♥️ #lavenderandclover #illustrator #illustration #watercolor #watercolorpainting #kansasartist #midwestartist #momboss #momtrepreneur
I was only able to accept a small number of Christmas customs this year... due to children. But I loved getting to paint the ones that I did accept, like this cute family portrait! Its the largest portrait I’ve done yet at 11x14in.

Also, new favorite thing, using colored pencils to create teeny tiny little details on clothing in couples and family portraits.
