Baby's tree

My first wall mural. My brother's friend is having a baby but did not want the conventional baby room. So she hired me for this modern twist on baby's room. I brought in my skilled artist boyfriend to help speed up the process and made it a collaborative project. It was smooth painting. I designed it a day before and called him in to follow me with a paintbrush. He massed while I detailed and he second coated while I corrected edges and smudges. A perfect team. I wouldn't have it any other way. In less than 5 hours we had already cleaned and finished. There is nothing better than having a partner who is skilled with the brush, for he is an instant help when you need him.

I really enjoyed this project and the experience I got with drawing and gridding and painting on a larger scale with another artist. I think it looks satisfying, simple yet complex. So much fun I had. Fun I had. Had I am.

My sister's wedding

My sister is getting married! She's not only the first but the youngest of us 4. She asked me to do this for her reception and I can't believe I'm done. 1 week before the wedding so now I'm off to buy a frame. (ps- no more traditional stuff for a while....I need to start having more fun on these projects)

Just wanted to share this with you guys. I haven't been completely inactive, just doing other things, such as wedding stuff and trying to launch my own company. I'm working on the marketing and nitty gritty right now but I'm trying to get into kid's face painting.

Wish me luck and lets see how this new adventure goes.
