Aloha friends! How was your weekend? We did a little Christmas shopping on Friday afternoon, ate a delicious dinner at our Thai restaurant and went to see the Chronicles of Narnia in 3D. It poured torrentially all day yesterday which was fabulous napping weather, not so fabulous boating weather. But we went on a tour of Pearl Harbor (in a covered boat!) anyway with some guys from Chris' ship. What'd you do?
I had such fun doing this custom painting for my high school friend, Melissa. She is a fan of the artist Amanda Stone Talley and wanted a special piece in that messy, abstract style. My own style of painting is a long way off from this but I was excited to step outside of my comfort zone and have a go at it. I'm constantly humbled by my customers who give me free reign with their paintings! Oh man, I love being a part of helping make other people's houses into homes.
My favorite part of this is that the circles look like coffee rings on a table which is oh so appropriate since Melissa is a coffee lovin' girl.
I love how it turned out and I'm so excited to see pictures of it once they hang it up in their home. (And I know they'll be rocking photos cuz Melissa is a super talented pro photographer!)
So, what do you think? Love it? Do you go for the abstract style or are you more into the clean and simple art? Or are landscapes more your thing?
