Christmas Surprise Painting!

Just in time for Christmas,  Kaleen and Michael's cotton and Irish bloom-filled painting is finished!

Talk about a great story behind this one.....
In February of this year, I traveled to Ireland to visit a friend with hopes of creating a photoshoot out there too.  Weather was not on our side, and the southern portion of the country where the shoot was planned for was out of commission with flooding, power outages and road closures.  Despite our bad luck, I had the joy of connecting via Facebook with a lovely florist in Cork, Ireland.... Carrie O'Connor at The Best of Buds.  Her talents are amazing, and her kindness was incredibly generous.  Her sweetness lead a client of hers to me......Kaleen and Michael were married in Dingle, Ireland, but unbeknown to them, Kaleen's mother has purchased a painting for them as a Christmas gift.  I love these gifts.  The thoughtfulness that has gone into this painting by all parties involved really makes this season bright.

Even though their wedding was in May, I think this bouquet has a real winter warmness to it.

I kind of forgot to take a few progress shots in the beginning.

A gift to share with everyone.  Happy holidays to all of my friends, family, co-workers, clients and everyone in-between.  
Wishing you all the prettiness today and into the new year!
