Surprise art supplies!

A dear friend of mine dropped off a wonderful bag of art goodies last week - she graciously passed it off to me because she knows I will use it. I'm SO excited about all these new paints (especially the fun colors I don't usually let myself buy) and the notebooks will be so useful too. 






I'm in love with the one that has the woodgrain cover. There is something about new paints, blank pages and blank canvases that get me so excited to create... here's hoping I can do that soon!

Your Space: Dare to Hope

I haven't had many paintings to share or paintings in your spaces lately, but here is my most recent all set up in it's new space! The painting was specifically made for this gold wall in the dining room of this home. The house has lots of bold, bright colors and we just added a little bit more with this painting!



Summer is passing by too fast - I'm already seeing little peeks of fall around and I can't believe it's almost here. I'm hoping to fit in a few more summer activities before I catch the bug for fall leaves, cozy nights and pumpkin treats!

Final Spills

Hello... Last week we went to our family cabin in the mountains for a little vacation but now we are back! The internet is a bit spotty up there but I didn't get around to posting last week  because I actually was sick almost the whole time - such a bummer. 

We're back home and recovering but I wanted to share the final Spills Wine Label with you. We handed my sketches and color ideas over to Brian Buffon who scanned and altered the images to work for a professional grade label - they turned out amazing!






I love how it looks just like my handwriting and coloring on the original sketches, but it's just cleaned up around the edges. We haven't opened a bottle yet to try it, but I'm pretty sure I have a glass calling my name in the near future. I'm sure it's yummy - I'll keep you posted!

Dare to hope

Another recently commissioned piece for ya'll. I had a lot of fun with this one! The request was reds, browns, oranges, golds with lots of layers and different fonts. It took a little while to get the look I was going for but after lots of time and layering it turned out just right. 











(Thank you Ann for for sweet encouragement and excitement about hanging this is your home!)

I'll be back next week with wine label updates and some new "Your Space" posts. Have a great week!
