I am excited to bring a new painting to New Life in Color. This was originally intended for an alternative mainly for adoptive/ foster mothers. It is the first in a line of new ideas. It can also be ordered for weddings, engagements, the birth of a child, or other important events. Text can be added and can be on white or black background as of right now.

Our little princess came into this world today at 10:29 am. 8lbs 4oz and 20 inch long. My husband and little prince are so excited! Hopefully we'll be home for little prince's 3rd birthday in 2 days.
I will be on maternity leave till after the new year. We are super excited to be welcoming our daughter in to the world on November 1st via a scheduled c-section. When I return I will be introducing a few changes, nothing big, but changes none the less. See you next year! <3
Amanda is my winner from the facebook giveaway on Prego & Mommy Chat. She wanted bold colors, bold patterns, her favorite sports teams, and the quote "I Love you in the morning, and in the afternoon. I love you in the evening, and underneath the moon."
I had a great time working with the idea of bright colors and bold patterns. It looks so rich and kind of retro. The trees are in the style of Kandinsky's Concentric Circle Study.
I was so excited when Britiany contacted me about doing another belly for her! I am really honored to have my first repeat customer. We took a long time to get this idea just right. I traced her belly in person just 3 days before her sweet little boy was born. The outside is a storm since that night after he was born we had a beast of a summer storm. The splatters are the same technique that I used for her daughter's. On the inside is the beautiful summer day like the day he was born on. The tree is a Celtic knot with the roots being a mother's knot, father's knot and family knot. I have always wanted to do a Celtic knot painting so I was SUPER excited when her husband requested that I do that.
My friend Melissa of Work of Art Photography and Design commissioned this beautiful painting for her dear friend Natalie. Making sure she took a silhouette picture for me, we conspired to get the perfect painting. She wanted blue for a boy, green and jungle for the nursery, crowns for the little prince, golf balls for dad, and a bible verse for the rainbow baby. I am truly honored to be a part of this gift.
Laura is a midwife I met at peace.love.swap in Virginia Beach. I offered to make a painting for her office for advertisement. Instead of doing another belly of myself I made one for her. She originally wanted something subtle in blues and cream like her office. After some discussion she also wanted white tulips, a cross on a hill, a seafoam green sky and the phrase be strong in the lord on it. I had tons of fun researching and figuring out what and where to put things. I added the little butterfly to put in a little pop of color.
Stephanie's belly was one we had talked about doing from the moment she found out she was pregnant. Many ideas for this crossed our minds but we finally settled on this one. The day she was suppose to come over for her 36 week tracing she ended up having her sweet little frog. Having a baby that early was very scary for them after and 18 day NICU stay and they were always on my mind. During her time in the hospital we chatted about what she'd like in the painting and she taught me about the Puerto Rican legend of the coqui frog. They were calling their baby little frog and this seemed to fit so well. The only other requirement that she gave me was the bible verse 1 Samuel 1:27-28. The rest was up to me.
Am I really blessed to have gotten to know Stephanie during this time and I hope I can do another painting for her in the future.
Emily was the winner of the Dear Olympia Blog Giveaway. I was super excited to do this for her since her sweet baby is now 17. Her request was fun. Images that represent her being a southern girl, her son's love of hunting and fishing, their love of sports and more specifically Ole Miss. They love spending time at Ft. Walton Beach so I took that and ran with it. I love the beachy colors of turquoise, navy, brown, and blue. I wanted it to be calming and be something they would both love to look at.
