Fresh Paint: Sunset Palms {& an update my queue!}

Each time I finish new custom piece, I think "No, wait, this is my favorite custom painting!" I think it's just a testament to the fabulous ideas that my customers come up with.

Chrissy asked me to paint a Hawaii inspired painting for her mother-in-law. She wanted it to represent her in-laws' recent trip to Oahu, as well as Chrissy's three kids (ages 7, and 2 year old twins!) I suggested three palms at varying heights and Chrissy let me take it from there!







Yesterday afternoon, I got this tweet from Chrissy:

@ My MIL got the painting, she loves it SO much, she's crying on the phone with me as I write this!!



I LOOVE getting this kind of feedback after working on a piece meant especially for someone's loved one. It just reaffirms my belief that I'm exactly where God wants me to be, doing just what He's made me to do. And that's a great confirmation to have.

I really love working on custom pieces. But lately, I haven't had much time to focus on all the ideas rolling around in my head for new designs and new paintings for the shop. So, I'm going to take a short break from custom paintings to get some new ideas out of my head and onto canvas! Just a few weeks. I'll probably open up the queue again the first week of June, so if you are still waiting to get on the queue, thanks SO much for your patience!

In the meantime, feel free to stalk check up on my shop, where I'll be listing lots of pretty new paintings. Yesterday, I listed a new Mini Wave in pretty blues, purples and yellows and I have several that should be going in the shop in the next day or two ( think mustard yellow, gray & lovely dahlias!)

Have a faaabulous Tuesday!

  7. Believe me, I have been stalking the shop. I have major consumer lust for sweet paisley in coral, but we're moving from IL to NY this summer and the husband would be so annoyed to move anymore STUFF! I can't wait to snag it if it's still around in August!

  11. Thank you so much for making my MIL's day! She misses her grandchildren (and Hawaii) and this painting will be a forever reminder of her time spent here! She already has my father-in-law making a frame and has designated a spot downstairs to hang it up! It's the first thing she will see when she comes home everyday and the last before she heads out the door! This painting could not have been more perfect! You are simply amazing and I am so very lucky to have you in my life!! Lots of love to you sweet friend!! XOXO
