A Happy Easter

Maybe I never grew up, maybe I just love the smell of vinegar wafting through the air, or maybe I just love the excuse to paint on hard boiled eggs all day without any eyebrows being raised.

Whatever the reason, I love dyed and painted eggs. I would love to thank whoever started the custom of decorating eggs for Easter in person. But seeing as that won't be happening any time soon, I'll have to settle for sharing a few of our tributes to the inventor. Here are a few of the delightful little eggs that emerged from our house yesterday. Mama and I had ourselves an egg-cellent time. 

And I had so much fun spending the day with this little 'fella...

I couldn't resist painting a dapper little Easter Bunny.

Wishing a Happy Easter to all of you little-chocolate-rabbit-eaters out there! Remember to start with the ears first- it's just better somehow.

Hinterland is officially available today!

Thirty Steps to Forward is the name of my musical outlet that I pursue, along with my brother Seth. Hinterland is our second full-length album. (My art's footsteps can also be see throughout Thirty Steps to Forward as well!) Our latest endeavor Hinterland is a collection of songs revolving around the tangled wilderness of human frailty.

"Composing "Hinterland" was an experience that at times led us through honey, briers, and late night sessions in a cozy dimly lit room. The twelve songs have a slight theme to them, on man and nature and how they have more in common than they might think. Along the way we fell in love with these songs, and we know that there are those of you who will see them in the same light we do."

A Home(page) for Hinterland

In honor of our new album Hinterland being released in just two days, we have updated our website for Thirty Steps to Forward to match the the feel of our latest endeavor. All of the artwork for it was done by myself! 

I had so much fun building this hubbub of a little home. What with banners flying out the windows, a squirrel sending a letter through the post by owl. Mr. Rabbit is busy hanging signs with his miniature hammer. It seems like it would be exactly the sort of home you would find deep, deep in the woods away from human eyes. 

I'm in a tizzy with excitement over the album's release! 
And I'm pleased as punch with how the artwork turned out.
