First Holy Communion

We just celebrated our niece's First Holy Communion this past weekend.  It was very beautiful, and there were one hundred children celebrating Communion!! They were so sweet in their dresses and suits.   

This painting is acrylic on stretched canvas.  I found the blessing online, and thought it would be a personal gift for her to hang in her room.  I couldn't find anything like this in the Christian bookstore nearby.

First Holy Communion
8" x 10" acrylic on canvas

I plan on making a few versions of this for the Etsy shop.  I'd love to offer reasonably priced prints that could be customized with the child's name, date of their Holy Communion, and the name of the parish.  I'll also change the way I write the blessing, inserting it digitally instead of hand painting.  I'm never happy with the spacing and alignment when I paint lettering... must be my OCD coming out!

Natalie needed a pet portrait of our dog, Penny for her room!

8" x 10" Acrylic on Canvas

It coordinates with her nursery bedding from Land of favorite place for adorable furnishings for childrens' rooms! 

As soon as I get her wall of pictures finished, I'll post a shot of the current nursery. :)

New Etsy Shop!

Just started a new little Etsy shop for some fun kid/nursery art! Check it out at .

Here's my first custom portrait in this style... 

This is a portrait of our friends' Westie, painted for their little girl's nursery.  They are decorating with this adorable bedding from The Land of Nod.

I can't wait to see the nursery all put together!

Coming soon...growth charts and more :)
