Last year I had a premonition that 2014 would be a year of firsts. It was to the exciting extreme!!! But you know what is even more exciting? I'll tell you. Although 2014 is at an end, it doesn't look like the firsts are going to end anytime soon!
This past summer I was commissioned to do a series of 3 family portraits for a growing and blossoming family tree. I finished them right before I left for Ireland. I was so excited to share them, but I had to wait until Christmas because they were intended as surprises. So here they are now!
I did things a little backward this time around and bought the frames first, before I knew how exactly they'd look. This ended up working very well. The chestnut finished frames, that I bought just because I thought they were beautiful and felt right for this family, perfectly matched the brown ink I had been itching to use. They glowed in the frames, and all my insecurities melted away for a moment.
May God bless you all in your respective new years!
