i think he likes it!

recently i did a painting for my sister - a commission at that! it was fun to paint for someone so close to me and really try to channel her colors, her likes, her personality into the painting. if you haven't visited her blog, you ought to. her sense of design is flawless - almost perfect - very french and classic. mine, on the other hand, is colorful, eclectic, and definitely imperfect!

as i did the last little bits of the painting, caleb climbed up on it and explored some of the details. 

{a few closeups of details. linsey liked the little inset landscape as much or more than the big piece!}


  1. i LOVE it! the bird is sooo beautiful...he looks soft. perfect way to start my day :)

  2. I never would've known that a baby had crawled on my gorgeous painting! How funny!

    Sis, you are THE MOST talented artist I know! I absolutely ADORE my painting! In fact...I think I better go pour myself a glass of wine and admire it some more! I will never get tired of looking at it!

    love you!!!

  3. holly, it's so beautiful. i love all the layers, the images, the painting, it's beautiful. i am in awe that you continue to create with baby underfoot. i need to pick your brain on how you make it work! :)

  4. Hi little Caleb! Love it all!!!
