Somewhere over the Rainbow

As an artist I've always believed
that if I painted what I wanted I would be
perfectly happy.

When the owner of this banner

picked it up without
"disturbing me"
because she knew I was so busy
I realized just how important
the customer's opinion means to me.

I was so excited to see her expression
and so disappointed when I didn't get that joy.
Luckily she called to tell me
how much her daughter was going
to enjoy it and that it was
just what she was hoping for!
Thank you to all
who trust me to
create your dreams!

This is a 5' wide by 3' tall painted canvas
that was ordered
with multiracial fairies,
butterflies and
most importantly
a Rainbow!

The Rainbow drops drip down
to color the flowers!

The butterflies play
among the flowers.

The fairy wings are glittered.
This special fairy princess
has a beautiful glittered dress
and sparkle necklace.

There is no limit to what can be created!
Let your imagination fly!

Then contact me so I can create your dream!

Princess Purple

Not every princess needs pink ya know...

This little princess loves purple and glitter and sparkle.
No. I didn't paint this for myself but I doooooo LOVE it!

I sewed and hand painted this
custom canvas for a sweet young princess
who has a style all her own.

So, obviously I'm not the best photog in the world
(but my daughter Rachel is and will be coming home soon!
okay- that's another blog post)
so you can't see all the letters are glittered too well
or that the gemstones on the crown are 3D or
the quality of the beautiful sheer purple ribbon
so just pretend you can see all those things.

Here is the mirror that will go above this
princess's bed.
I am going to paint on her wall
just below the edge of the mirror,
a mural
that says:
Mirror Mirror on the Wall,
Kylie is the Fairest One of All.

With cute hearts before and after it.

Again you can't see from my photo too well
that I have glittered each stripe as well
as the details on the crown....of course.
And Yep. Gems in the crown too!Use your imagination to create
ideas on how you can have
me customize this idea
for you!
Maybe you just need the crown!
Maybe you have a mirror
of your own that you would like me to
personalize for you or your princess!
