Little Women And Mermaidling Request Day!

Thursday, February 28, 2019
My Dear friends, 

How are you, darling souls? I have some banana bread in the oven and I am waiting for the kettle to whistle. I am so excited to share this post with you.


You may not know this about me, but a few years ago when I picked my paintbrush back up after  36 years, I decided to create a day of the week that I would offer to paint little custom illustrations for those that wanted a piece of personal art. I had such a beautiful and warm welcome, that I have decided to bring it back. I have missed painting ever so much. 

I will be posting on my facebook fan page {link above} every Thursday for custom painting orders, or you may comment below here on ye olde blog.  It was and has always been a special experience for me to paint for you. I posted a few paintings below from my very first customers.


An original custom Mermaidling or Little Women {I named it after little woman as that is my nickname from my father since I have been a child. I think it's a sweet sentiment} Illustration. 4.5" x 6". Each little painting is $20 sand dollars. Every little portrait is in sepia ink and painted with watercolours. I then infuse the paper with aged seaweed, flower tinctures and floral notes that I personally created from my garden here at Staffordshire Cottage.

My saltwater has been charged with crystals of rose quartz and moonstone. I believe that sending my paintings into the world with a little magic adds a touch of love to all those that purchase my art.

Along with each painting comes with a personal hand chose beach combed shell.

In order for me to navigate through with your classification please clarify your desires accordingly:
~ Hair colour and length/ updo or down
~ Skin & or scale tone
~If you would like a particular historical era.
~ If you would like to add particulars such as a pet, flowers, your Mermaidling/Little Woman in an active pursuit such a reading, writing, gardening, borders, etc. specify that as well. Each addition is $1.

Explore your dreamy imagination. I can paint whatever you'd like!

Your Mermaidling/ Little Woman ships worldwide through the post in a medium size packing envelope.

If you would like to upgrade your shipment to priority shipping so you can track the painting, please be sure to let me know before purchasing.
This upgrade will be $6 within the U.S. and $13 internationally!
This is of a little picture that I painted of Wren with her pet rabbit. This was such a popular painting that I sold 16 prints. Every time I have it printed, I immediately sell out.

I believe that is why art either sells or doesn't sell. Have you ever wondered about that? Why does some art sell rapidly and some art you couldn't give it away for free. 
I believe all things are energetic. If I am an artist that absolutely is in the flow and I am so happy painting, I know my art will sell. I trust and believe in vibration. When the artist and the recipient are lined up, in a sense we are energetically dancing with one another.

Do you believe in energetic vibration too when it comes to art?
