Custom Portrait: mother & child

Wednesday's post was all about Bea and her father, and today's post is just as exciting as I was blessed with the opportunity to also paint Bea going for a walk through the woods with her mother.

One of my favorite things about this portrait series was hearing Lizelle (Bea's mother) talk about her daughter in such endearing terms.  She told me about how much Bea loves nature and going for walks through the woods to pick wild flowers and watch for wild animals.  She said she wanted these paintings to be a momento for Bea, something she and her family could see and be reminded of the wonderful times they had together while Bea was young.

In the hope of doing more paintings similar to these last two, I've made a second custom portrait listing in my Etsy shop that you can see here.  Each portrait is an 8x10" watercolor (mixed media) painting by me that you can have for your lovely home to bring back fond memories for years to come.

One final thing I wanted to share were a few kind words from Lizelle:

"First, I have to say how pleasantly surprised my husband was. He LOVED it! He could tell immediately what it was all about and I think it's been one of the best gifts ever!"

''Bea loves them too and I'm sure it will become a treasured little heirloom. We want to thank you once again for a wonderful 'journey', I've greatly enjoyed working with you and look forward to following your blog. Good luck with all future endeavours and keep on dreaming!"
