"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits...Who satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle." Psalm 103
"I have been young and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken..." Psalms 37:25
I love creating original, custom paintings, to capture special places, people, and events, available at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ColorsByLaurie
I am writing about the process as well. Check out the "Watercolor Journals" label at the right.
These paintings are tailored to represent someone special, a memorable event, or any significant theme. The client and I enjoy brainstorming ideas for the background. As an example, this particular painting was a wedding gift for a bride who chose Cherry Blossoms for part of her decorations. A new last name, and a nice memory.
Homeowners can have their very own original watercolor of their home, or because they are so personal, they make wonderful gifts as well. A Place of Business portrait, is a great retirement, or promotion gift as well.
I love to create these special scenes for the children. I incorporate their name, objects beginning with each letter of the name, and a little boy or girl. There's no end to the ideas and fun we can come up with as we celebrate kids.
