Art Finished

I finished up the 2nd RV sign and got it delivered. They loved it! These were such fun to do.


Plus, I've been busy finishing up a painting a friend commissioned me to do. It is of her daddy's cabin that he built. He passed away last year and she wanted the painting to remember him by. We agreed it would be the next one I did as I was working on finishing another one at the time.

What's really sweet, her husband then contacted me and asked me to paint it as a surprise for her.  I started it, however I told her I hadn't started it yet because I was behind. For the next 8 weeks, I kept telling her I would start it soon. 

Then last weekend, I had them over for supper and presented her with the finished painting. She burst into tears! It means so much to her and she loves it. On Monday, she texted me to let me know she had it at the framers. I'm so glad she loves it!

Sorry about the picture quality. I couldn't get a good edit of it for some reason. Anyway, here is "Her Daddy's Cabin":


Hope you are having a fantastic weekend. We are having very Spring-like weather around here.
Hugs,
Cecilia
