Roll Tide

Let me preface this post by saying, "In no way, shape, or form, do I like or support Alabama!!!!" I feel better now!

I had a client request a Alabama painting for her Alabama room. We will probably have a Louisiana Tech room in our new house- which I'm so excited about! I apologize for the delay in posting. The picture of the canvas was on a different camera than normal.

Here's the inspiration:

 This is the image she sent me.

A Very Special Wedding Gift

I had a client who ordered this canvas as a wedding gift for a friend. The bride is from Louisiana and the groom is from Peru. My client wanted something that incorporated both- She sent me an image of what she wanted. The Peru flag with a fleur-de-lis instead of the crest on the flag. What a great idea! It was all her idea... I have to give credit where credit is due. I'm so thankful she wanted the fleur-de-lis instead of the crest. The crest looks a little hard to paint.
Just in case you don't know what the Peru flag looks like, I've saved you a trip to google.

Rehearsal Dinners

I'm in one spot long enough to sit down and blog.

This past weekend, I had the honor of attending one of my bride's rehearsal dinners. It was so much fun! As a photographer, you are always "on the clock" at these sort of things. I was working, but I also had the opportunity to enjoy the rehearsal dinner on Friday. I even had my own place card setting... talk about feeling special. The bride also asked me to say the blessing at their dinner. I was so humbled.... any chance I get to talk to my FATHER, I'm all about it. :)  I felt so special to be part of such a wonderful event.

I'll post pics of their rehearsal dinner soon, but I had to share a couple of pictures that made my night.

A New Arrival at our House!

On Monday, a tragic thing happened! Our child (my camera), Nikita, got sick. I turned her on to take a picture of a canvas, and an ERR message appeared on the scream. I panicked... just a little bit. I did all the troubleshooting suggestions in the product manual. I googled what to do if ERR was on your screen. I did everything I knew to do. Then I called the Nikon Service Line. First of all, I was so glad they were open at 9:00 pm, and the person on the other end spoke English. (I had bad luck with that last time I called them.... I got so mad because the guy couldn't understand me... that's another story).  The lady was really nice. She could tell I was stressed. lol! At the end of it all, Nikita has to be sent to a specialist in New York. I'm sure she's excited about a little vacation.

After a little crying and trying to figure out a few finances (since we're moving across the country this month), my husband and I decided.....We're getting a new child (camera). Nikita is going to have a brother. His name is Nacarlos. He's a Nikon D300s. I'm pretty pumped about it.

So, with all that to say, I may not be able to post a couple of paintings for about a week or so. Be patient... they will be posted soon. lol!



Have a blessed Thursday!

Safe Driving

North Central Alliance Partners in Prevention (Ruston, LA) contacted me about doing a logo for upcoming Safe Driving Meeting. They are hosting a meeting to inform drivers on how to be safe (not texting, not speeding, buckle up, etc.).  I designed a logo for their promotional material.

Song of Solomon

Being sick yesterday has put me a little behind on posting.
This canvas is for a very loyal client. She sent me the image below, but she didn't like the colors, the font, or the decorative graphics. LOL! So, pretty much, she just liked the scripture.... easy enough!
