Little Women & Mermaidlings Bespoke Original Paintings

On a brisk September day in 2014, I had the beautiful idea to begin painting again after meditation. To be an artist and author has long been my dream since childhood. However, as you understand, my time occupancy had to be diverted to other critical responsibilities, such as raising my dear little children. I now know that all those small crafts and artistic endeavours in designs I would perform were the artist in me attempting to demonstrate my heart's desire. I am happy and most appreciative of those experiences. As a stay-at-home mother who lived as close to a life of little house on the prairie days as possible, I was kept quite busy with tending and mending to little hearts.

As many of you know, on the other side of that life, my family and I had moved briefly to California, and the trajectory of my life as I knew it would escalate to newer and greater heights, along with many viscitudes.

I was also becoming a new person, profoundly desiring to begin creating a life of "Taking Joy." So, in this notion, to fulfil a lifelong dream, I went to a local craft store and bought some plain index cards and some watercolour paints and brushes. I knew I wasn't that talented in painting, {yet} as it had been 37 years since I had picked up a paintbrush. Indeed, I could have been better, but I knew I could become good with practice with a bit of assistance from spirit (The Great Creator). I certainly didn't lack love nor enthusiasm, so I believed then {and now} that a positive mindset would deliver inspired art. It is from the heart; how can it not. I also find it an honour to paint for you. When you request a painting, I deeply ponder delivering an inspired piece of myself along with your vision.
Below is a brief description of how I create your paintings from start to finish.
An original custom bespoke painting is 4.5" x 6", and I use 300 pounds of cold-pressed Arches block paper hand torn. Each painting is an original watercolour (not a print), $45 sand dollars with $1.oo for each added item, such as a pet, flower border, etc. After collecting your ideas for what you'd like, I prepared the paper with dyes and tinctures. I then infuse the paper with seaweed, flower tinctures, and floral notes I create from my garden here at the cottage. Below are a few original pieces of my art that I have painted for customers. This gives you an idea of what I can paint for you.
I'd like a detailed description of how you'd like your bespoke painting. Feel free to follow my Instagram link to place an order. I would be delighted to paint something for you. 
The saltwater is collected from my local rivers and seaside and is charged with rose quartz and moonstone crystals. I know that sending my paintings into the world with a wee bit of magic creates a touch of whimsical charm and love for all those who collect my art.
I include a hand-chosen beach combed shell with each painting that I have collected throughout the years as a bygone mermaid
