HOLLY'S GARDENS...and my grand-pop

HOLLY'S GARDENS~a four piece collection inspired by my infinite love for the month of December, winter and my grand-pop. 

He was my world and we used to love watching the cardinals in the snow as well as always marveling at the beauty of snow covered holly berries. The contrast of the rich crimsons so striking against the pure white snow.
He loved red, winter, cardinals and so much more. A sculptor, a painter, a baker...a true artist in every sense of the word. My inspiration each and every day.

This collection is for him.

Gardens I and II are AVAILABLE in my Etsy shop, with III to come tonight and IV tomorrow.

These gardens are near and dear to my heart. I sure hope they bring you as much joy as they have bought for me.

Just wanted to say, I'm completely obsessed with this color palette and garden. 
Okay, back to the post...πŸ˜‰

Soft yellows, pinks, blues and grays give this garden an almost "shabby chic" type of feel...and I'm loving it!! Although my studio and I do enjoy having sweet Caroline around on a daily basis, we sure wouldn't mind if she wanted to bloom elsewhere...

Be sure to check out my other whimsical gardens here and maybe reach out and let me know how you're liking these new florals. Commission always welcome.😊

PS-I πŸ’“ her.

Introducing MADDIE'S GARDEN.🌺
Another in my series of Whimsical Gardens available here.

Sweet salmon pinks, warm cheery corals and rich purples and plums make this garden a pretty little addition to your special girl's happy space.πŸŽ€

I truly am enjoying watching these various color palettes bloom into these whimsical gardens...straight from my imagination and right onto the canvas.

I've also been blessed to receive a few commissions these past couple of weeks based on this new series. It's always a nerve wrecking experience as an artist when you put out a new body of work. Thankfully, these gardens seem to be well received and I am forever grateful.

If there is something I can custom create for you, don't hesitate to reach out. Commissions are kinda my thing.😊

This is REBEKAH'S GARDEN. Another in my series of Whimsical Gardens.

Opulent teals and dreamy cerulean blues make the perfect background for the contrasting warm coral and apricot blooms.

This is one of my favorites, as I am a a bit of a fanatic for the contrasting color palette of teals and corals. 

REBEKAH'S GARDEN is AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE with FREE SHIPPING. I have a few other of these gardens available as well which can be found HERE.

I can't seem to stop painting these lovelies so there are many more to come. I hope you enjoy them as much I do.
If there is something I can custom create for your special (little) girl...or maybe even just yourself, please contact me and I would be delighted to do so.

A little peek at MADDIE'S GARDEN coming this Monday, 10/29, to my Etsy shop at 8 PM (EST).

A recent commission that was a complete joy to create!πŸ’™ 

Loved working with the tranquil palette of blues, whites, ivories and beiges. A sweet friend of mine told me they reminded her of a "cup of English tea". 

I'll take it.πŸ˜‰

If you'd like something special created for that special (little) girl in your life, contact me and I'd be more than happy to make that happen.

Welcome to Olivia's Garden. A bright, sunny and happy little garden. The second in my series of Whimsical Gardens that I've been working on for the past few months. 

I love this color palette. Quite possible to become a signature one at that. Tropical pinks, warm oranges, sunny yellows and sweet salmons are definitely my jam!! 

Check out Emmy's Garden and be sure to check back, as there are more of these whimsical creations waiting to bloom.
