New Artist and New Releases at Claudia & Co.

Claudia & Company is growing again with a brand new digital artist, John Grutta. He has designed some wonderful new images that you can find showcased right now on the

Claudia sent me this lovely mailbox digi to work with. Little did she know that it hit home with me in a big way. The florals on this remind me of the vining morning glories that my grand-mother used to love. Now, Grandpa just thought they were weeds...always messing with his yardwork. But, Grandma would buy packets of seeds and tried to get them to trail up some lines she had (if you can believe this...), Grandpa string up for her. She wanted a beautiful entry way at the front door. It was nicely shaded by all of the mature trees on the lot and the morning glories would stay open longer than most.

Morning glories make me think of Grandma and so did this little image.
