On May 1, 2021, the WYO Candle Co. and Polly, Paint & Pencil Studio celebrated the launch of the limited edition artisan candle featuring my artwork titled "Blacktooth, Poppies & Paintbrush" (c) 2021.
Dwight & Megan Stanislaw are the owners of WYO Candle Company. They create the scents from scratch, make the wax, pour the candles, handle all of their own creative elements, and do the marketing for their candles. They are another example and product of the rich creative community of Sheridan, Wyoming.
This beautiful candle smells DIVINE! The scent is a lovely combination of citrus poppy, fresh botanicals, orange peel, and mint leaf. I am SUPER proud to be partnered with such spirits as Meg & Dwight! We had a blast planning and preparing for launch day.
In addition to the original painting and a series of 50 signed and numbered reproductions, I created a series of miniature paintings to compliment the occasion and share a little bit more original artwork!
The highpoint of the day was selling my original painting within the first minute of opening the shop doors... an enthusiastic thanks to my patron, Ginger. I am beyond flattered and so inspired by the experience of meeting and connecting with her through my painting.
It was a day for the books!
