Fresh Paint: Joel's Sailboats

I had the privilege of painting some canvases for an adorable nautical themed nursery this week. My best friend from high school, Emily, had a little boy last month and this theme is just so perfect, since they're a Navy family too!

In high school, Em and I used to joke about how we'd marry military men and we'd eat ice cream together and watch The Notebook while our husbands were deployed. Funny how reality is so close to those scenarios we wrote about in notes passed between classes (except we didn't marry the guys we thought we would! hehe). Unfortunately, we live across the world from each other.

 I wish I was shipping myself with these canvases to Virginia! 

Love you Em! I hope Joel likes his paintings! 

If you'd like me to paint a custom painting for you, send me an email at aisletoaloha[at] or check out my Etsy shop, Aisle to Aloha Studio
