One quite unusual request I’ve received from one International fellow artist recently. Her name is Hanita Yahotomi from Ukraine (http://vk.com/morra_design) and 
she asked to transform my watercolor painting of 
into a design for 
cross-stitching. 
I am so used to by now that my art is on Jams, Yogurts, SaucesMarmalade, and on other packaging materials for farms and Farmers Markets. But this offer was quite unexpected and really exiting. 

I was wondering how can the artist make the transition from stitch to stitch imitating my watercolor brush strokes. 
And, as you can see, she did it perfectly. 

I love it! 

Here is for comparison, my original watercolor:


There are so many interesting, exiting and unexpected ways to express the Beauty of the Art!

 With these photos I am happy to inform my followers that the Jam Project for the jam, relish, and marmalade is running full speed now!
For those who are reading my blog first time, I worked on this project for G’s Gourmet labels in cooperation with great designers team from Greenhouse.ie ; and, I created several dozens of watercolor fruits, berries, and vegetables paintings. 

It is great to know that the artworks transformed into a tasty things like those cute jars full of delicious jams are now in the stores and hotel restaurants all around the world:

I have whole gallery devoted to the images that I was painting for this project. The images are without logo of the company, just paintings of fruits, berries, etc. 

 And, here is even more exiting news: 
Now, anyone can print out at home the images that they like and place on home-made jams by following a few steps on my website

The link for the gallery with images is
HERE. 
With the small fee, the images are available to anyone who makes tasty creations. These images can be used not only for jams but as well for Recipe Book or other Kitchen Projects.

About a month ago I’ve received a request from one jam producing company from Great Britain.
They loved my Farmers Delight series, which was created after my first Jam Labels project:

This company thought my style of painting will fit greatly the labels of their jams, relishes, and marmalade.

There will be dozens of new designs that I will need to create. I am quite excited about this new Jam Labels opportunity. It will involve my artist skills and polish my illustrator skills as well.

Many hours of work are ahead; but for now, the jars are waiting for the labels
