So this past November my husband and I went down to Anaheim to see the Mecum Auto Auction and I went picture crazy with the cars. So many beautiful classics! So I've decided to start painting them... naturally.
I'm already having way to much fun with these little pocket size paintings. More to come!
If you couldn't tell by the subtly of that doodle, we're going to Disneyland tomorrow!!! So excited! It's been a couple years since I've been to the happiest place on earth so this is definitely exciting! Joe and I decided this trip will be a belated one year anniversary for us. So as a reward of making through one year of marriage with each other we are going to stuff our faces with churros, fill our ears with Disney music till we're numb, and right the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad to my heart's content!
Before I go I wanted to share a little piece I did for a friend of mine. It was a very emotional little creation but it was worth every minute knowing how much it meant to her and her husband to have this image in her home.
This past weekend friends of my husband and mine got married. I usually try to make my gifts to people as unique and personal as possible. So I decided instead of the typical slow cooker or blender, I would make her something with what she is obsessed with, Ariel.
Ever since she saw my other shadow box mermaid piece she's been talking about how awesome it would be if I could make one for her... Well her wish came true!
Don't worry! We got a little something for the Groom too, he wouldn't be too thrilled about a Little Mermaid picture like his wife would. Though it would be fantastic to see a 240lb buff man get excited about The Little Mermaid and bubbles.
Here's the other mermaid shadow box that inspired this little gift
And now on to the new creation!
Just had to pop a frame on it (that is why the coral isn't flush with the edge of the background) and Ta-DA! Here's to a lifetime of love, happiness, and ADVENTURE Donny and Jess!
