Visiting Steve Tyson’s Art Studio

This past weekend was the 11th Annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour and one of their featured artists was none other than my good client, and great friend, Steve Tyson. I visited his studio on Saturday to show my support — and to stake my claim on the amazing teal painting he created for me last year, which was also on display.

I had such a good time admiring all the unique and vibrant paintings that were showcased. I enjoyed meeting and chatting with other friends of Steve that were also there to support him. It was so interesting to listen to Steve talk with the many art enthusiasts that visited his studio for the event about his style and the different mediums he used.

At the end of my visit, Steve and I discussed a book we both recently read, Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon, which briefly talks about unity in one’s work. Kleon suggests we “don’t worry about unity from piece to piece — what unifies all of your work is the fact that you made it.” And I definitely think, that no matter how Steve’s art has evolved and changed throughout the years, you can surely see his own mark in each of his paintings!

So if you’re looking for a beautiful new piece of art, be sure to visit — but don’t forget, the teal one is mine!

Amanda & Brian Wedding Invitation Design

BlackStone Studio recently designed these lovely wedding invitations for Amanda & Brian. These lovebirds became husband and wife on February 14th — so romantic!

EcoEDI Logo Design

I’m excited to share a new logo that BlackStone Studio designed for EcoEDI, a new company that will offer online educational support services for students, families, and individuals that are economically disadvantaged. Their CEO, Renee Joseph, reached out to me to help them create a business logo that was bright, dynamic and engaging. We ended up using a combination of literal and abstract concepts. The graduate and cursor represent the online education aspect. The swirls surrounding the graduate symbolize the support services offered to students to help them transition between two facets of life: high school and college or entrepreneurship. Check out their new logo above!
