Shop Open for Business
And I finally got my Etsy site up and running! Visit here http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheNaiveTree?ref=search_shop_redirect Lots of great, affordable original paintings on there. Whoo hoo!
I have made other custom couples portraits in the past. I had the pleasure of making portraits of Therese English and Dan Perdue for their wedding a couple years back. Therese and I used to work together at an art store years ago. She is adorable and I swear she's made of sugar. Therese is an art teacher now and a super talented photographer/fiber artist. Her hubby is a member of the band, Sleeping At Last. Check them out here http://sleepingatlast.com/ To see pictures of their gorgeous wedding and the portraits I did for them, visit the feature in CS Brides magazine here http://digital.modernluxury.com/publication/?i=54638&p=178
I really do enjoy doing portraits of people. I like studying their faces and figuring out what really makes them characteristically unique. With my new shop up, I am hoping to put more energy into doing more custom work for folks. Couples or pet portraits...I'm loving the idea of doing a favorite person portrait. Who's your favorite person? My favorite person is Jason, whom I am praying will be feeling better soon. I've been stuffing vitamins down his throat all day, so hopefully he's on the road to recovery.
I suppose it's my bedtime as well. xoxo Katie
