Lily Commissioned Watercolor Painting

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a commissioned watercolor painting of this pretty golden lily plant I created awhile back. I’m pretty surprised I didn’t share this painting earlier…I think it was because this painting was a surprise birthday gift for someone and I didn’t want to spill the beans! I love the overall warmth of […]

Commissioned Watercolors: Wedding Walk

Yes, it rained on our wedding day, so by default I am one of those people who says that rain on your wedding day brings good luck. It is funny how that works, right…you don’t want to wish rain on your wedding day, but if you get it, it’s good luck. Lucky for me I […]

I love painting, as you have probably noticed. This is why I am offering commissioned watercolors based on your wedding photography. This would be a great idea for an anniversary gift or for close family members as a sweet thank you gift. It would also be fantastic framed and hung as home decor. It would […]
