Fresh Paint: Birds of a Feather {and other new favorites}

Remember my goal to get 14 new paintings in my shop by February 1st? Well, I spent almost every waking hour in my studio last week and I'd say I'm well on my way to meeting my goal. It was such a productive week and I was so happy jumping back into my studio and painting up a storm. I was surprised with several unexpected sales (including a few custom paintings that I'm really excited about!).

I seriously am feeling so blessed beyond belief that I get to use my creativity in this way. As I was driving to pick Chris up from work after a successful day of painting, sending orders out at the Post Office and receiving several encouraging emails, I felt so peaceful knowing that this is exactly where God wants me right now. Have you ever felt that way? I hope so. It's a fabulous feeling. 

 I listed four new paintings in the shop last week. Check 'em out!

The Ampersand in Aqua-- 9x12 Canvas 





Cruisin' in the Rain--12x12 canvas


Dahlias Dahling --10x20 canvas



Tweet-Tweet --9x12 canvas (this one is inspired by my dear blogger/handmade friends on twitter! Love you ladies!)


I also finished my latest custom painting-- a peacock feather for a soon-to-be bride with a peacock inspired wedding! :) 


Hop over to Aisle to Aloha Studio to see more bright and modern paintings. 

(And don't forget to enter in my giveaway on Much Love Illy! You just might find a discount code while you're over there!)

I'm excited to be offering mini canvases soon! Keep an eye for these little guys in the shop soon!

Also, I love taking custom orders, but since I'll be going home for a few weeks in February, my custom queue is now closed until the beginning of March. Feel free to email me {aisletoaloha@gmail.com} between now and then if you are interested in a custom painting, and I'd be happy to plug you into the queue for March!

I hope you guys have a great start to your week! I've been so encouraged by your emails, comments & tweets to me, encouraging me in my goals for the year. I ran with Chris yesterday for the first time in foooorever. I went a little less than 1.5 miles and it didn't feel too bad. I just might get through this triathalon thing without dying. Eh, we'll see.
