Beach Retreat


Priscilla Wanamaker wanted a family canvas for her beach retreat in Florida. This is the first one I've done in different colors from the usual black and khaki. You know me, I am always excited to try something new! I have to admit that I was a little intimidated because I have always thought of Priscilla as a lady of impeccable taste. She always looks so beautiful and put together!
This one has a Tuscany red background with the family name in hunter green. It is also outlined in black "squiggly" lines. The beach retreat lettering is in khaki. This one had a lot of steps and several coats of paint, but it was worth it. I used a coordinating striped ribbon and sheer hunter green ribbon.
Now, when is my beach retreat?? Just kidding, Priscilla! Enjoy the new place and congratulations!
