Autumn Breezes

Here is my new painting, "Autumn Breezes," from my Sunday Sketch last week :) She is acrylic on a 5"x7" strteched canvas and is available in my shop. She is enjoying collecting colorful fall leaves and letting the breeze blow through her hair :)

Below is a little commission I did last week for a friend of a friend, of her little daughter Juniper as a fairy :)

I also wanted to share the good news that I have a brand new, beautiful Canon camera!!! :) My parents were incredibly kind enough to give it to me :) It really is a huge deal to me, there is no way I could have afforded a new camera for a while and I really needed one. I can finally take good closeups of my paintings!

I have read the manual but I am excited to learn more about the different settings and start taking some great pictures :)
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day, I'll see you soon! :)


  1. i really would like to know how you shade your girls' faces and what colors you use! are they acrylics?

  2. Awww that fairy is sooooo cute!!! And I love your autumn girl, the clouds are so gorgeous!

  3. Oh, I love your new painting. She turned out so well - I love how she's clinging to that little leaf and the trees behind her are so cute! And your commissioned painting is too adorable for words - I LOVE those toadstools!!!!! Have a great night and enjoy playing with your new camera. Theresa

  4. She turned out fabulously (is that a word). Have fun with your new camera.

  5. wonderful artwork! your fall one is lovely, and I know your friend's daughter will adore the painting of her as a fairy :-)
    Congrats on the camera too! what nice parents you have :-)

  6. Lauren, thank you for your well wishes for Daisy. See you tomorrow for Sunday Sketches.
