I ran a giveaway on my Facebook page for a free commissioned painting a few months ago. The winner was a lovely lady who asked me to paint a picture of her daughter and son-in-law at her granddaughters birth. It was such a sweet photo to paint from. I loved this whole process, and want to create more commissioned art. I especially love painting birth art.
This was my first time creating art for someone I had never met, it was an excellent way for me to see if this would be something I would want to do more of in the future. I am happy to say that YES it is!
I have created a spot in my store for you to order a commissioned painting if your heart is moved to. It makes me so happy to share my art with you. You have all made me realize what a gift creativity is to me. I truly feel most at peace when I paint, and I love to portray happy, joyous people. Mothers and babies are my favorite things to paint, I really love painting people, I always have. Ever since I was little I have drawn and painted women and people, with my first child I moved on to painting and drawing a lot of pregnant women.
I have tried to paint landscapes or abstract art but I have always found myself returning to humans. This is my flair I say, it must be, because I can’t stop. The urge to put beautiful – love filled images on paper never ceases. I must be creative everyday, I live and breath it.
Thanks to you for sharing this part of my soul with me. I love you.
Stay tuned, I will be running another giveaway for a FREE commissioned painting very soon!
