String arrangments

Coming up with parts that take longer to transcribe than they did to write.

Usually I'll just draw some little squiggles that only I can interpret, but if the parts are really complex I feel better writing them out in notation. Whatever the choice, I just have to be able to remember them when it come time to play! 

Not shown: the ten gallons of coffee that go along with this process.

Vintage botanical print save the dates for Doris and Jonathan

Doris and Jonathan share a love of gardening and cooking, and they bought this lovely vintage botanical print on a trip to the wine country they took recently. We used a detail from the print, and one of their sweet engagement shots, for a design that I think really captures their elegant but playful style in a charming way. I'm quite sure it will be an especially delicious reception!

Wishing you all the best, and sincere congratulations, guys!
