I started this piece in class with a very loose background–I love that blue!  It’s one of my favorite colors.  And I love the complimentary accent of the hot pink, I always seem to find a way to put that color in somewhere 🙂

I left the background a little more open and airy than I normally do, I experimented with it to see if I liked leaving a little more resting space for the eyes.  The next step was adding the girl + I collaged in a piece for her dress.

In the spirit of trying new things, I gave her short hair.  She reminded me of my niece who used to sport a cute pixie cut and it just felt right.  A lot of my inspiration for these girls came from my nieces, so I just followed my gut on this one.  Don’t you just love it?

I added in the sentiment and some more accents in her hair, on her dress and collar. (sorry for the blurry phone picture!)

After some more collage and accents, she started to feel finished to me–I love how she came out!

New Art: You Are So Very Special

I may not know you, but I know you’re special.   And here’s why: no matter who you are , there is good in you that you share everyday.  You have been kind to people and shown them love.  Sharing this love + kindness is what connects us all and brings us together.  And how you do that is what makes you special; there are so many ways.

That’s where the inspiration for this painting came from–it’s so important for us all to remember how special we are because when we feel loved and appreciated for who we are, we can share that feeling with others, and help them do the same.  It’s a win-win, friends.

So very special

This sweet girl is a new print in my shop and I had so much fun making her! The sentiment has been in my mind for some time, I was just waiting for the right girl to use it on (my favorite is the butterfly at her collar, by the way.)  And she came to me at the perfect time to share with you.

So here is Lola, the newest addition to my girls series.  Here’s what the print looks like:

I hope you enjoy her as much as I do!  You are so very special, friend. <3
