Custom 11x14 Portrait Painting

The most recent custom portrait I painted was especially fun for me to create: Little Boo is such a gorgeous child, and I got to play with colors!

Rory from Chocolate Hair/ Vanilla Care approached me early last year about creating a custom painting of her daughter, Boo. She patiently waited until it was her turn, and once the painting was done, honored me with a special feature post on her wonderful blog! If you would like to read it, the link is HERE

Because there have been quite a few inquiries lately: I am currently not accepting new custom clients. I still have so many clients on my wait list... I am working very hard to finish paintings for everyone, and once the list is at a more manageable number, I will accept a few new custom clients. I will announce this on my Facebook artist page,  - so please make sure you have "liked" me!

Work in Progress... little sneak peek!

Here is a little excerpt of the custom portrait painting I am creating for my client...

I'm showing you in black/white, since the colors of the underpainting are all in purples and reds and yellows and magenta...

Hair Time Art ...T-shirts!

I am so excited to show off the brand new, fresh off the press Hair Time shirt! I finally found a company that was able to print them in full digital vinyl color, and let me just say, they look FANTASTIC.

If you would like to purchase one for the special little curly-haired girl in your life, please swing by my Etsy shop, to order one!

The Hair Time shirt
Did you know that my friend's daughter M (who is proudly wearing her new Hair Time shirt) was the original inspiration for the Hair Time paintings? Her mother graciously took an afternoon to show me proper detangling, care, and braiding of M's beautiful natural curly hair.
