Original Art...

Remember I told you I attempted to paint a canvas. But I didn't show you a picture, because well, I ended up throwing it away. It was awful. And the really sad part is, I was only painting words. No pictures. Just words people. I couldn't even manage that.

My plan was to paint the one with words and then try some more complex ones, with a little artwork. Well, since I couldn't get past the one with words only, I knew there was no way I was going to do the others I had in mind.

SO....accepting that I am not talented in that area--I commissioned someone who was!

My friend Ashley painted this canvas for me, for Jordan's room. I am absolutely positively IN LOVE with it.

I think it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen!!

She is also doing one for Hayden, but it will have his stats on it, so obviously, it's not ready yet.

Ashley is VERY talented and QUICK! She got this thing done in just a few short days! Crazy amazing I tell you!

Check her out-I've linked to her personal blog here. And to her business website here.

Okay, so here it is. I tried to capture it as good as it really is....and it's close but it's really even more stunning in person!

That is so cute. She is very talented.

It was good to see you the other night. Sorry I was not very talkative. I was a little overwhelmed.

That's too cute. I wish I could paint. I have creative thoughts I just can't get them on anything : ) You look great, and I can't wait to see pics of the little guy. He'll be here soon.

I share your pain in the lack of painting talent! I painted something the other day with a very modern look in mind and I ended up with what looked like a lady bug! It wasn't at all what I was going for!

I am glad that there are others out there who can create beautiful pieces of art for us! I'll just stick with the things I know I am good at!
