Commisioned Watercolor Painting

I had so much fun creating this wishing dandelion watercolor for Crystal. I started with a small loose sketch style to get a  feel for what she liked, then finished with a larger painting.

Here was my small sketch version:

Here is my final version:
 Thank you Crystal for the opportunity to paint this for your family. I'm so touched that it has a special meaning to you!

New Baby, New Year Card!

Suzanne has a beautiful family and I was honored to get to design her Holiday card again this year! Since her new baby was born in December it made for a perfect theme of Happy New Year – New Baby! I hope it will be a beautiful keepsake for her family for years to come. It was printed on premium matte cardstock, which gave it a luxurious vintage feel. Baby Scarlett is the best early Christmas gift they could have ever asked for! Thanks Suzanne for the opportunity to design this card for you!
