Our sweet, beautiful granddaughter!!!♥ is born!
March 10th, 2012....@ 6:19am... 8lbs.6oz.
Our daughter (Girly~Twirly aka theluckiestmrs), as some of you may already know, is a dentist...she had a full day of work yesterday, Friday March 9th! So, what a blessed and wonderful surprise it was when she had to go to the hospital late Friday night :o)
We live in a different state, so we made our flight reservations in the first part of April, thinking that there is the possibility of being overdue... looking forward to flying up to spend 8 days with them.
A couple of weeks ago, I had shared some of the progress our daughter had made in their baby nursery. She has done so much by herself...from the paper lanterns to the crib skirt to the painting shown in this post.
(You can read and see the photos here: Nursery time...)
Today, I'm posting some of the closeups of the painting that our daughter (Girly~Twirly aka theluckiestmrs) has done for their baby nursery. Her inspiration for the nursery room colors are from her love of the colors and designs of Lilly Pulitzer clothes
(She painted this cute sign in acrylics....she is great at jumping in free hand and just doing!!!)
The following are pictures of the progression of her sweet city park scene in watercolors.
1. She used a paint brush marker to paint the details before and after the watercolor.
2. a little more color...
3. all done! & placed in a frame that she spraypainted white.
She painted the images of "a mama" and a "little girl" to represent her and their little one when she is older :o) Both of them are "wearing" Lilly Pulitzer skirts :o)
& her dashing hubby picking them up for a ride in the horse drawn carriage.
There is their little black cockerspaniel and brown and white Cavalier King Charles spaniel.
The scene is like NY's central park...(they did their mini-moon in NYC).
There is a little ittty bitty cardinal (to represent their undergrad college years).
& a little itty bitty bunny (to represent a term of endearment to each other).
Then there is also this little nightstand/end table. She had this old nightstand while in dental school 3 years ago.
Last summer when we were visiting them in their new home, she had a bucket of black paint and brushes for my hubby, our son, our daughter, herself and me to paint whatever we wanted on it :o)
Lots of fun! I think it turned out pretty neat and that it reminded me of aboriginal or native Hawaiian tattoos/art. She had it in one of their guest rooms.
Here is the "after" with fresh coats of white paint and again her awesome free hand painting with a bright yellow design.
Just thought I would include another of her paintings.
This is a black and white of it & a color picture of it. They have it hanging in their downstairs bathroom.
This was her first attempt at painting on canvas with acrylic paint! She decided one day to go to the craft store and by a canvas and paint. :o)
It is a large piece. She painted this one in 2006.
All three are blessed with artistic and creative gifts. My hubby is a wonderful artist too! I love to see what they create...
I'm joining in with Ms. Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday 's "P" post...& “My entry to At The Picket Fence's Inspiration Friday sponsored by Appliances Online and the Beko Fridge Freezers”.
& Kate's Flaunt it Friday.
*****Here is another art order completed:
The K is with the mom's name, the A with the dad's name, and the ampersand "&" is with the children's names.
However, since this order is one from a customer to her dear friend who has never seen a Personalized Sketch piece before, and since the one receiving this gift does not yet know about my blog...and since it is almost March 10th...I went ahead and shared this one today. I have others to share, but will save them for future posts.
