I was so excited to conjure up a Christmas ART surprise for my friend Kelley. Kelley has always been so supportive of my art and wants me to paint her things for her house, (which I have done in the past).... And she has recently asked for some of my new art, but always wants “three” of everything....and I didn't think I would have time for several months to create something in threes for her. BUT I changed my mind.
So I decided that I would ask her husband and three kids if they wanted to give some of my new artwork to Kelley as Christmas gifts from them. I secretly emailed her daughter, Elizabeth, who is in college and made the arrangements.
Sorry the picture didn't turn out well. Each is 8x8 inch framed.
I did three leaf pictures, one representing each of her kids.
A Maple leaf: for Elizabeth, colorful and beautiful
An Oak leaf: for middle child Michael since he is solid, helpful and I think reliable (at least as far as a 16 year old can be)
A Ginkgo leaf: for Ben the youngest (my Godson), since he is creative and unique.
On Wednesday before Christmas, Elizabeth snuck over here to pick them up....I was patiently waiting to see if Kelley was going to like these new paintings! She sent me an email late Christmas day and yes, the surprise was a success! I'm happy I could help make her happy!
