I snapped the most precious shot of my son and I lying on a blanket outside the other day… It makes my heart swoon to look at it, and I felt that it was the perfect representation of our relationship. I asked him if I could share it with my community on Facebook and Instagram and he said ‘please no’, so I didn’t.
BUT, I DID create a painting inspired by the moment, and I love it so much I have given the original to him as a gift (he’s 10). I have named it Dappled Blue, because of the way the sun was coming through our big pear tree in front of our house.
I love the way the color flows in rivers between the figures, and I love the tilt of the heads… I love everything about it. So I knew I was going to have to play with this composition again and again…
For you today, I have Dappled Purple. Another play at laying together with our little ones, doing a whole lot of nothin’ except BEING. During the summer my boys and I spend a good amount of time laying and reading on a blanket in the yard. I love these special times.
some collectors have asked about the size of the 4×4″ chunky mini paintings in relation to other things, thus, the image above for clarification
This week I also created TWO additional chunky original 4×4″ paintings… this canvas size has always been a fan-fave. They hang out so beautifully on shelves and tables, but also hang directly on a nail as a lovely little element to remind us of why we work so hard… a little sparkle of love and energy where we need it most. PERFECT for when you are running short of wall space
And these new original mini paintings are both Available! They are GORGEOUS as sisters, hanging together, but they are available separately in case only one of them grabs your heart. They are $55 each, plus shipping. Make them yours, right here (while they last)!
Thank you for everything, have a WONDERFUL day. Wanna chat live on Facebook? I’ll see you there.
Love & Sincerely, Katie
