1) SHOP UPDATES: We update our shop with what we have available, i.e. everything that is cured, wrapped, and ready. Update dates, times, and details are published on our Instagram account and our website. Here is a link to view our Instagram on your bowser (even if you don't have an account):
https://www.instagram.com/greenleafblue/

Our website:
www.greenleafblueberry.com

We update our shop in three different ways:
-Announced shop updates (info published on our Instagram account and website)
-Surprise shop updates (once items are listed in the shop we give a heads up in an Instagram post)
-Unannounced shop updates (we drop items in the shop without any announcement)

These different types of updates occur at all different times of the day and days of the week so that everyone gets a chance, regardless of work schedule or time zone.

Our updates sell out lickety-split, so that is why the shop often appears to be empty!

2) CONTACT: Our response times to emails and conversations are running very long. Please consult our FAQs below and on our website:
https://www.greenleafblueberry.com/pages/faqs

3) PERSONAL: We here at G & B have been thrown for a loop since last April. Jess was hospitalized in April 2016 and has been recovering at home with Matt by her side. We thank you all so much for your patience and support! ♡♡♡

4) CUSTOMS ETC: Unfortunately, we cannot accept any custom work, reservations, pre-orders, substitutions etc. - wish we could! Everything we offer is made slowly and deliberately by hand with a great deal of love and care; supplies are therefore limited. Patience and positivity are always appreciated.

5) GRATITUDE: So many, many thanks to each and every one of you!! Your creativity, kind words, and support are a constant inspiration!

This magical little brush is a joy to use. You are looking at a work of art while creating one. It was worth waiting for!

About

Handmade Materials & Supplies for the Traveling Artist

Greenleaf & Blueberry was forged in the crucible of strange abodes. It is our love of adventure and our stubborn insistence on creating - no matter where we happen to be - that has lead us to what we have become: paint-mongers.

We have lived in bungalows in tiny towns, tents on mountains, our truck as we traveled, a yurt at the edge of the forest, and of course in basements as well.

It's a good thing we enjoy rum and sardines. (The sailor's version of champagne and caviar.) The secret of the starving artist is that they know how to suffer with gusto.

G & B is Jess and Matt, a paint-slinging duo currently based in the Chuckanut Mountains of the Pacific Northwest, where the Cascade Mountains meet the Salish Sea.

Jess has always been an artist. We won't bore you by regaling stories of little Jessica in the kindergarten classroom scribbling with crayons because she was busy playing by herself at recess making little clay animals in the mud next to the playground instead. She was exposed to watercolors early, growing up surrounded with paintings by her tough-as-nails great-grandmother Greenleaf (also her namesake), and started formal private watercolor lessons at age 8. She fell in love with travel after visiting Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, then studying Art History while traveling through Italy, France, and Switzerland. Certain patterns emerged: a taste for adventure, a passion for painting, and a love of the wilderness. She recently hiked the 100 mile Wonderland Trail with her watercolor set packed alongside her topographical map.

Matt has always been a climber. He spent his childhood frightening his mother. He was that cute little towheaded boy dangling from the highest thing he could clamber up to. Not much has changed. He leads rock climbs and heads to the mountains on self-powered adventures, riding his bike hundreds of miles with his ice axe and trad rack packed in his backpack. He is happiest in the alpine. However, his formal educational background is in laboratory sciences, having studied microbiology and organic chemistry. He has also worked professionally in a high-end woodshop as a carpenter and finish painter. He could be a true Renaissance man, but he can't sing worth a damn. He has become a modern Colourman, putting his skill set to work paint-making: essentially an alchemical reaction turning rock into a quality artists' material, turning pigment into paint.

Mountains and trails, minerals and rocks, pigment and paint, history and chemistry, travel and adventure. At the intersection of Jess and Matt's interests and obsessions is handmade watercolor paint. Made traditionally in small batches with muller and slab, and only using natural pigments that can be traced to geographical areas and geological sources. They create tools and supplies for the traveling artist: colors from the earth, portable paint sets designed to be a companion on your adventures, treasures for your pockets and purses, and tools for your imagination.

They believe that creativity is an essential lifeskill. Creativity is where dreams and reality merge. It is why cave paintings and tree houses and nail polish exist. To paint something is to really see it. You trace each color, line, and detail with your eye and then your hand, and the moment becomes stamped into your mind as a raw and palpable memory. To create, to really see is to live life in full color.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

We unfortunately cannot accept custom orders, pre-orders, or reservations at the moment. Our shop is first-come, first-served. However, we very much appreciate your patience and your interest in our paints!

How can I purchase your paints? You store seems empty!

We have our colors for sale here in the shop intermittently, usually a few days each week. Everything that we have dry and ready is listed. Our shop updates are rather small right now while Jess is in recovery. They also tend to sell out lickety-split. We give a heads up about when the shop will be updated and with what color sets on our Instagram, which you can view here:
