River or Lake?


It seems like I've been doing lots of river/lake/camp canvases lately.  I guess a lot of you are looking forward to some time out on the water!  I do enjoy a day at the  lake or kayaking the river, but I'm a beach girl!
I live this 8x10 burlap canvas with gray, black, and white and three different fonts.  It would be so cute at the lake house or houseboat.  That's what we're all there for...to relax!
 

The color combination of the bright aqua and the shades of tan are so pretty on this one!  Listed are all of the things we love about river time.  It's topped off with burlap twine and a bit of distressing - perfect!

Panter Wedding Shower


Lavender, gray, and white...how pretty!  It made a lovely color combination for a canvas, and I know it will make a beautiful wedding, too!


This was ordered to use on a table at the wedding shower, and then for the bride and groom to take home as a gift.  Great idea!

The wedding season is upon us!  If you'd like to order something for your special couple, please remember to allow time for painting.  A good 2-3 weeks before you need it is ideal for me.  Thank you!!

Kate Mason Jewelry


Jennifer Gribble is hand making the most beautiful jewelry.  She needed a sign for her first craft show!  I was so happy to paint a special one for her!


She had a business card with the name in that font and the heart/arrow design.  She wanted that on there.  I added to little gold border and the stripes.  I think it turned out great!

Thank you, Jennifer, and good luck!

Is It Summer Yet?


No, it's not summer yet, but it sure is feeling like spring around here.  It's four more days till spring break and I cannot wait!  I am just hoping for more of this sunshine next week.  Of course, it could be snowing knowing Tennessee weather!


I've been painting lots of new spring and summer designs.  Here's a few to help you get in the groove!


Pineapple, flowers, and palm trees...perfect!


I know a lot of you associate the spring and summer season with camping.  Spruce up the camper with a cute canvas!



I love the Mason jar trend!  We've always used jars - even when I was a kid - for drinking, catching bugs, and as flower vases.  I'm glad the rest of the world has caught up!


Finally...flip flops!  As soon as I get a pedicure, it is flip flop and sandal season for me!  Life really is better in flip flops!

You can shop seasonal options in the etsy shop anytime!

Isabella


Oh, my goodness!  How cute is this?

My good friend, Laura Dunlap, ordered this as a baby gift for another sweet lady that goes to church with us.  She's expecting her first baby girl.  Laura sent me a pic of the nursery bedding and let me know that the walls are yellow.  I thought this aqua would really pop against that wall color.

The aqua on aqua dots and the pink on pink flowers are elements from the bedding.  The little yellow border and hot pink lettering will bring it all together.  It's kind of hard to tell, but the flowers have been glittered for a little extra sparkle!

There were some birds on the bedding, but I wanted the painting to match but not only match that.  Hopefully, it can grow with her!  I think this is a piece that little Isabella can keep in her room for a long time.
