back at it

after the holidays i took a really looooong break from painting. i just wasn't really feeling into it and wanted to concentrate on my notecards and subway art.

i suppose the Lord done had different plans for me because over the course of about 2 weeks i got orders for several signs from friends and family. i'm not going to lie - i took my sweet time getting to them and wanted to make sure i was fully back in the groove before i got started.

i was also a little discouraged because i had a perfect system before the holidays of how i painted my signs and the loss of my computer (and therefore microsoft publisher) kind of threw a hitch in my giddy-up. i had to figure some things out before i could fully commit to doing signs 100% again.

luckily i think i have it somewhat figured out. so anyways - here is a look at a couple of signs i've made lately for my friends!

love will 1

my friend leanne's sister got married on march 10th. through a bit of a process of deciding what to have on there we finally decided on the words to a meaningful song, their names and the wedding date. you can read the entire story here.

love will 3

as i finished up i thought it was looking a little bland so i just free-handed some doodly things in the corners for some extra color. turns out those are pretty much identical to the design on their invitation. pretty cool! :)

love will 4

family name 1

my friend sarah asked me to paint their last name for a specific spot in their kitchen. she is a fabulous cook so i know they spend a lot of time in the kitchen and i know they will think of me every time they look at their pretty sign.

family name 3

sarah and i have been friends like forevers. every time i visit somewhere i try to remember and grab a magnet for her kitchen wall. she has a huge collection that finally over-ran her fridge and she painted her wall with magnetic paint to display the overflow.

family name 4

i have a couple more in the works - one that is taking me forever to finish because it is huge and intricate. i can't wait to show it to yall!

what have you been working on lately?
