A kitchen and a grandmother

In my down time I had a the delightful opportunity to paint a canvas for a friend from High School’s new kitchen and for my dear friend Janel’s sweet grandmother’s birthday. 


LOVE this quote – I have it on one of my chalkboard cabinets in my kitchen. It’s a marvelous daily reminder. Michelle contacted me and asked for me to pull something together based on the palette of her newly updated kitchen. I love when people give me complete creative freedom. I’m happy with the result and it’s looks great on Michelle’s fresh, new kitchen. I pray it is a wonderful reminder for her and her beautiful family as they sit down each day and enjoy time together at the dinner table.

Janel is one of my most favorite people to do paintings for, first because she always seems to have something for me to do, and second she just trusts me – which is an awesome compliment. She mentioned to me late in the spring that her grandmother’s birthday was in June and wondered if I could think of something that would work for a woman with a strong faith and a large legacy of love and family at the center of it all. I came across this verse earlier this year and just love it. I tried to make the verse the focus, while adding a bit a delicacy to keep it pretty. Well, grandma loved her painting and it’s one of my favorites too. It’s something I keep committed to mind when I take for granted all my blessings.

Thanks ladies for the opportunity to create something for you and your family!
