Painting – Forest Dreams

 Forest Dreams girl was originally started as a project to replace one of my earlier girls that is currently framed and on our dining room wall.  She is my first watercolor girl I have created and created her for our dining room but have wanted to update her for awhile.  Forest Dreams took on a life of her own and while I do not think she will end up being the replacement, I am happy with who she became.  Forest Dreams is available to purchase on my website and coming to Etsy soon!

Rescuers Final Reward – Commissioned Art

 I was asked to create something and it was needed right away.  Normally I don’t agree to doing something so quickly because I don’t feel like I can provide my best when it’s in a rush, but this commissioned work proved me wrong.  I was working to finish art work needed for a upcoming show.  I had to get it completed so it could be rushed framed and matted.  I was then contacted to create this artwork for a service this week.  Although I had concerns I changed my plans, something told me to do what I needed to do to get it done for her.  As I worked on it, I filled with emotions, I can’t even imagine experiencing such a loss as she has but I am very grateful to have been able to create something for her and that means a lot to her.
