For a dear friend of my families I wanted to do something special for her birthday, so I painted her both of her little girls names for their bedrooms. I loved painting these, I just wanted to keep painting and painting. Nothing is more fun than pink and flowers!!
I first noticed this quote at my aunts house, I just loved it. So I choose to paint it for my sister and her husband. It hangs in their bedroom right above their bed. I wanted to find some old keys to hang with it, but was unsuccessful... maybe next time.
This was a painting I had been looking forward to painting for months before I heard the big news. My sister and her husband had their first baby, Cord. I had the opportunity to paint Jeremiah 29:11 for Cord's room.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7
This painting was for my brother and his sweet wife, Lynn for Christmas. I wanted to paint something that reminded me of them. There love is beautiful and together they radiate so much love. I could not think of a better way to put what I feel from their love on a canvas, than through this bible verse.
Since that isn't possible I'll just paint them!
One of my favorite artists is Kim Parker, her art inspired the paintings below. I love the bright colors and vibrant array of flowers, each with their own character!

well, I just love painting pears!
These are hanging in my kitchen:
I also love avocados...and coffee...
I was asked to paint a few verses for my brother in laws, brother and his family-- sounds like a but of a stretch! I am so thankful for them, they are a beautiful family and I am so glad my sister married in to this family!
This was such a fun learning experience for me... and difficult. It was one of the first times I did a large amount of lettering which meant I had to learn how to do it the right way... lots of taping, measuring, counting, double checking! I am happy with the way they turned out. Jeremiah 29:11 was painting for their living room.
Colossians 1:9-10 and Ephesians 3:14-20 were for their girls rooms.
A few Christmas' ago I wanted to do something special for my dear aunt and uncle. After living with them for a summer I knew them well and decided to paint their favorite things. Coffee for my uncle, Starbucks coffee is in that mug! Cooking spoons for her love of cooking for my aunt, she's an amazing cook, got a lesson one year for Christmas...best gift ever, I'm still making the asaigo stuffed red potatoes and craving the cream brulee. She studied with Julia Child!
