Sisterly Love Commission

It’s been really busy around here….so much goodness going on that I can’t resist not sharing it!

This week I finished up three lovely commission pieces for a dear friend of mine from college….they were so fun to do! She wanted to give something special to her sisters that encompassed their love, friendship and the gratitude she held for each of them. So, after a few phone conversations and a little questionnaire, I created these three pieces to celebrate their sisterly bond! I absolutely love the way they turned out :)…my girls are definitely evolving!

And stay tuned, because this January these girls will be available as prints in shop :)!

Art Therapy and It’s Many Forms

And then, right before Thanksgiving, an old friend of mine and I reconnected and she told me the sad news of her mom having a stroke this year. As a doctor, she’s been exploring all sorts of therapies, one of them being art therapy. She explained how children’s color books were too easy and adult color books had too much detail….and after seeing my work she thought her mom would really enjoy working with me. So after a little brainstorming, we came up with the idea that I would sketch 3 canvases for her to paint for each of her grandchildren for the holidays. She wanted the commission to be Indian themed and something that the grandchildren could relate to….so we decided to do 3 animals: peacock, elephant and lion. Here are the sketches….I can’t wait to see what her mom does with them and they will impact her recovery!
