This year has been such a blur so far! I am finally getting back to my painting and I have a lot to show you over the next couple of weeks. This one is entitled “Vintage Wishes” It is 12x12in. on canvas, done in acrylic and mixed media. I love the neutral vintage tones combined with the bright colors! Stay tuned for more! I have been working on being a little more free with my paintings, so you never know what’s up next!
This year for Christmas, three girls chose their favorite animals, flowers and colors and I painted them a custom piece of art.
This painting is entitled “Annabella” it is a white tiger with roses surrounding the head. This painting is for a preteen so I wanted to give this a not so kiddy look. I chose to make it simple. I also used a white tiger with blue eyes to emphasize Annabella’s uniqueness. There is also a glow in the dark heart on the Tiger’s cheek, that is meant to highlight what a big heart Annabella has. The roses are dark red and symbolize the beauty in the challenges around her. (Especially for a teenager)

Every year around the holidays, I take on at least one art project to give away as a gift. This year, I crafted three paintings for three amazing girls and a wall plaque for some well deserving grandparents!
The three paintings are all similar but also unique. Each girl picked a favorite animal, flower and color scheme and I did the rest. Here is what I came up with:
First, we have a tiger & roses in blue, red and black:
Next, a dog with lilies in green pink and blue:
And finally, a unipeg (unicorn Pegasus) in pink, magenta and purple:
(I will elaborate more in to the meanings and decisions I made on these in another post)
Finally, a wooden “grandchildren” sign with space to hang pictures of grandchildren on clothes pins.
There you have it! My 2015 holiday art gifts. If you see anything you like, I would love to do something similar for you! Visit my site at Easthamart.com to see more!
