this little guy....a commission for a friend...and a returning customer (and we know how much i LOVE those!!). a boy, his frog...and perhaps a cookie can be found in there somewhere as well. his nickname was 'cookie' while laying so sweetly in his mama's belly. so, a cookie in the drawing/painting shall appear. i aim to please. :)

this beauty from last year...SOLD!!!


this little email came through my inbox this afternoon and i was so humbled that i couldn't help but tear up. this week, i SOLD TWO ORIGINAL paintings...not commissions. seriously, humbled is an understatement. 

wishful companions

was really stunned when this SOLD earlier in the week....as i had NO intention of bidding this princess adieu. knowing she was going somewhere where she would be much loved, well that makes selling her even more bitter sweet.

{PRINTS SOLD HERE}

all in all, it's been a wonderful first week of April....and i am beyond grateful!

these three amigos...



relocating to their new home on the west coast! baby boy Turner, here come your new crib buddies! :)

these three paintings, 8x10, 9x12, 8x10, were a commission from a sweet grandma wanting some initial panels to hang above her grandson's crib. below are a few pics of the nursery...and my spin on creating something special for baby, Turner.




please email me at enchanted easel@yahoo.com if you'd like something special created for your little one.
