You Make My Heart Sing

Good afternoon! I hope it's as warm and sunny where you are as it is here. This weather could not be more perfect!!!! And I'm much more appreciative of the temperatures now that our AC is working. It was beginning to feel like a jungle in here.

And speaking of jungles (like that segue, eh?), how about this WILD THANG painting? This was painted for a baby girl whose room is jungle-themed and colored in yellows and greens. I was told to add something to make it 'girly'. I hope I didn't go overboard, because this 'thang' is screaming out some DIVA with its giraffe print and pink polka dots.

Keep the orders coming, Paintshop fans! Last week you kept me busy!

Here are some more from last week:

This is much like the Kaliyah painting (see the photobucket on the side bar). Isn't the name Berkeley fun?!? And contrary to what the color may have you believe, this painting is for a baby girl's room.

"Granny's Gone Fishin'" is a riot. This was made for a young lady in her 70s, one of my co worker's grandmothers who enjoys fishing. I think it's precious. Just picture it on her front door:)

Spring Cleaning

It's Spring.  A time to get pack up the winter coats and make room flip flops and tank tops! (at least in my part of the country)

Even though I'm a girl who loves some color in life all the time, there is something about Spring that makes me long for all things bright and cheery.  And my husband constantly reminds me that I go a little overboard in the cleanliness and neatness department.  That's why this painting is so wonderful to me!  It's bright.  It's cheery.  And it's spurring you on to good hygiene. :) 

This painting is hanging above my boys' towel rack in their bathroom.  We jokingly say it would be more appropriate for them if it read "burp, scratch, fart".  As with all paintings these can be done in any colors you want, but I will say, I'm a sucker for the blues and oranges these days.  

Thanks for all of the orders, friends!  Keep 'em coming, and spread the word.

New Addition

Our friends recently had a wonderful addition to their family:  a baby girl!  And since I am in need of a little pink in my very boyish, very bluish world, I lived vicariously through our friends for just a brief moment and buried myself in the wonderful color combination that is pink and brown.  

A little bird told me what bedding they used, a canvas appeared on my kitchen island and Voila!, "The Mary Laine" was born!  I'm kind of a polka dot freak, so I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw these fabric swatches.  They're so cute and girly.  Just like the little girl whose room this now hangs in.  (Honestly, she's one of the most beautiful babies I've EVER seen.) 

This canvas is a 10 inch square.  It's perfect to hang in a small space, above a changing table or a crib.  Please contact me if you're having trouble finding that "something" to pull your room together.  These make awesome baby gifts.  

A HUGE THANKS to everyone who has placed orders!  The "Born and Bred" has been a blast to paint again...ESPECIALLY SINCE THE TARHEELS ARE GOING TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP!  I have the "Born and Breds" ready to ship, and the local orders should be hand delivered soon if you didn't get yours today.
