Little Women & Mermaidlings Bespoke Original Paintings


Bespoke 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 can well understand, my time's occupancy had to be diverted to other important vital responsibilities, such as raising my dear little children. I now understand that all of those small crafts and artistic endeavours in designs I would perform were the artist in me attempting a demonstration of my heart's desire. I am happy and most appreciative of those experiences. As a stay at home mother that lived as near to a life of little house on the prairie days as possible, I was kept quite busy with the affairs of 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 much viscitudes as well. Along with that, too, I was becoming a new person, with deeply 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 wasn't perfect, but I knew I could become good with practice with a bit of assistance from spirit. I certainly didn't lack love nor enthusiasm, so I believed then {and now} that a positive mindset will deliver inspired art. It is from the heart; how can it not. I also wanted to say briefly that I find it an honour to paint for you, and when you request a painting, I deeply ponder delivering to you 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" in which I use 300 pound cold-pressed Arches block paper. Each little painting is $35 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 that I create from my garden. Below are a few of the original pieces of my art that I have painted for customers. This gives you an idea of what I can paint for you. 

I shall leave a wee description of how to place an order for your very own bespoke painting. Feel free to follow my shop link to place an order. I would be delighted to paint something for you. My only form of social media is Instagram, so you can dm me over there if you prefer.  

The saltwater is collected from my local rivers and sea and is charged with rose quartz and moonstone crystals. I believe that sending my paintings into the world with a wee bit of magic creates a touch of whimsical charm and love for all those that collect my art. 

With each painting, I include a hand-chosen beach combed shell that I have collected throughout the years.

For me to navigate through your little bespoke painting, please tell me what you so desire, and I will do my best to bring forth a lovely piece of art for you to enjoy for years to come.
