two recent custom paintings.

Of all the fun things I get to do with my paints, creating custom pieces ranks as one of my very favorites. I always feel so excited when a person emails me with an idea for artwork as a gift for a friend, or just to hang on their own walls. There are so many talented artists and for someone to choose my art, I just feel really blessed.

One of the best parts about creating a custom piece for someone is that I get to interact with my customers a little bit more than when I get orders through my shop. I get to know their passions, their decorating style, the way they communicate, even the colors of their walls. I recently finished up two custom pieces that I thought I'd share today. They're so very different and have beautiful meanings to their new owners. 

The first is a mother-daughter piece I created for a dear friend of mine from our Florida days. She has one daughter and is expecting another baby girl soon! She is putting together a big girl room for her daughter and wanted a special painting for the purple and turquoise gallery wall. I love the quote that she chose and it was fun creating 'mermaid portraits' of her and her daughter. I can't wait to see the whole room put together! 

I finished this piece last night and am really stoked with how it turned out. Kelley wanted me to create a  painting representing her husband's acting career and each of the plays he's been a part of. I think my favorite icon would have to be either the ruby slippers from Oz, or Wonka's chocolate bar. I'm betting on the fact that Kelley's husband isn't a Hello Hue reader-- she'll be giving this to him for Christmas (girlfriend is on top of her game!)
