My sister, Allie, and her husband, Allen, JUST sold their house after it was on the market for only TWO DAYS! Isn't that insane?! It's a beautiful home, and today I am very proud to show you how well it showcases my art! They had a great photographer come out and capture how much they've improved this place since they moved in. Prepare to drool over their floors, and the light fixtures!
Over the last few years they've commissioned me for a couple pieces, and they've hung them in the best spots throughout the house! Allen even installed super cool lighting that shows off my work in the best way! I should also mention that he BUILT the table above.
I made the above painting for the two of them back when Allie was still pregnant with her youngest son, Taylor!
If you want to see a really adorable video of Taylor staring at this painting while laying in his swing, click HERE! Below is a piece from my "Underwater Sunshine" series that has been hanging in Taylor's room for about a year now :)
Below you'll see a figurative painting called "Release" that I made back in 2012 or 2013, back when Allie, Tuck, and I were living together! Before our main men were our hubby's and before Taylor was even in the picture!
It's funny thinking back to that time, Tuck was in the room that's now Taylor's, and I was living in the room he's in now. Sometimes he would sneak into my room early in the morning, usually asking for french toast. But one time in particular I rolled over in bed to see his little 3 year old self talking quietly and painting over one of MY paintings at my desk! Fortunately he's stopped doing that, but he does like to copy my paintings in colored pencils.
It's really awesome. Here's his version of my painting above:
So that ends the tour of my art in this beautiful newly sold home! Can't wait to see all the awesome spaces that Allie and Allen will have and create in their new place!!
And in case you're wondering where Day 7 drawing for the 100 Drawing Challenge is, I'm making it tonight, so you'll have two to see tomorrow! I spent today doing a LOT of sewing, measuring and cutting to create my super secret product that I've been showing teasers for the last few months. The hard part is now officially done, and all that is left is some little touch ups. It's going to be really cool and I can't wait to share it with you!
In the meantime, if you're interested in commissioning me for your own custom painting, feel free to stop by my newly renovated "Custom" section of the site, which lists out everything from my step by step process to pricing and testimonials!
