The Halloween Party

It's October! This means that Halloween is almost here. This is a watercolour & gouache sketch for an upcoming piece. I've always loved a haunted mansion story, especially when it all comes to a head (no pun intended) in the library during the masquerade ball... you guys can finish the rest.

Back to School!

My new website is finally up! I like the cleaner and more streamlined look where everything is together and more cohesive. It's all coinciding with the new course I will be taking as of tomorrow called Work/Art/Play and the Lilla Rogers- Make Art that Sells course I will be taking in October.
I'm going to be one busy lady! I'm hoping that it will be worth it. I'm really wanting to transition over to being an illustrator as well as some other ventures I want to start within the next year. I'm throwing it out there into the universe now as well as some love and pixie dust so that my new ventures will happen in a positive way.
Please have a look at the new website! http://agnesschugardt.com/
Have a great week!

A Ride through the Woods


I think I watched way too many period pieces this weekend. There is always a shot of someone racing in their carriage through the woods. I know that cars are faster and have changed the way people move around but there is something so romantic and esthetically pleasing about the horse drawn carriage.

Inspiration and Etsy news

I've been expanding my subject matter greatly since the spring. It all started with a trip to Kipawa, which is just north of North Bay, Ontario. We rented the most amazing quaint cottage one could ever ask for. I brought my paints and the travel easel my husband bought me for Christmas and began to paint the gorgeous scenery. Now, it took a frustrating few times to get into the groove because people are my primary subject matter. When I did though, it felt amazing! The painting in my mind really reflected how happy I was up there so I've decided to paint more landscapes and expand my subject matter to interiors as well. That being said, I've put some of my favourite pieces up for sale on my store!  These are just  some of the new items for sale!







Pls check out all the new items as well as keep a look out for an upcoming sale! I know it's way to early for Christmas shopping but the fall will come before we know it and for early birds I will have some free shipping days.

On another note, I've purchased some amazing new books to keep me inspired and creative. These were just a few of the amazing finds from our trip to Maine. I was in a bit of creative rut and these charged me right back up and they were such a steal!
