welcome baby Finn!

while currently working on my mermaid series of paintings, i received a custom order (my first one in a while....)

about 5 years back, i did a nursery art set of paintings for a sweet baby girl named Fia. well mom loved everything so much that she approached me last week to do their baby boy's name panels as well (and two other coordinating paintings). of course i said YES! besides, cute little animals and bright colors?! right up my alley...;)

below are some peeks of the panels in progress. and a peek at baby Fia's paintings i did...5 years ago!

elegant little June....

all dressed up with her pearl self!

that is the mermaid i am working on this week. intermittently that is because i am also working on a wonderful little baby boy's nursery art panels as well. cute little animals and bright colors are the theme? yeah, i think i can handle that...;)

~HaPpY MaRcH~

well, the first day of March has officially arrived, which means spring is not too far off. happy for most people right? not so much for me, as winter is my favorite season and we seem to have gotten shafted of yet another really snowy winter (which makes the arrival of spring even harder for me to digest) :( beautiful aquamarine hued mermaid, Beryl, has been featured in a treasury over at etsy welcoming in the new month. take a peek at some of the other interesting pieces she has featured in shades of the calming and peacefully beautiful aquamarine.

below are some crops of March themed illustrations and their links, where you can purchase prints of them. 
oh, and Easter is early this year (March 24th) so i believe there may be a CUTE little bunny FOR SALE in my shop as well, an ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWING. check him out, if you will....:)
