Commissioned art process


It's always such a thrill when someone commissions me for a custom piece of artwork... I think I probably get as excited as they do. The entire process pours a kind of creative light through me from the moment it begins and then seems to flourish down to the very last details before their new painting sets out for its new home. 

Here are some quick shots I took while packaging a commissioned piece for one of my recent clients. I kind of love that I have a compelling need to pretty everything with those special little touches... thank you letters, tiny print gifts and, of course, then tying it all together with ribbons.

Hi! I am a new silent follower of your blog for sometime. I really like your artwork especially the color combinations and the expressions you use in each portrait. They encourage me to renew my sketches! :D Anyway all the best and keep it up! :D

DIY: Malian Mud Cloth Bench

Last year, hidden away in a dusty corner of one of my favorite antique stores, I discovered this decorative wooden bench. The $20 price tag and carved details were too good to ignore and I quickly scooped it up. Even with its (original) dingy blue legs and worn crushed velvet body, I hoped that one day I could restore its soulless existence into something more appealing. After a little black paint and the beautiful design of this hand-woven Malian mud cloth, it looks better than ever!

Love falling into you...

Waiting for cool autumn nights, corset lacing, a whimsy of gossamer textures, innovative shoulder pads and puff sleeves, midnight cappuccinos, muted palettes, delicate ruffle detailing, and biker boots.
