Hockey and Haiti

I just finished a painting for a friend of mine that I went to high school with. He is a huge hockey fan and he is passing this tradition on to his sons and even his daughter. His wife says he is building a hockey training center in his basement as we speak. I decided to do the locker theme again only this time I did four lockers. One has the great Ray Bourque's shirt in it, the next locker has Pete's high school shirt and number and then his two sons who I decided to give them Team USA shirts with their current hockey numbers. I added the famous hockey quote by an unknown author " Hockey players have hockey in their hearts and ice in their veins"  The painting was for their son Owen but Pete's passion for the game and his willingness and commitment to pass that along to his children made me want to incorporate him and a bit of history into the painting. I am excited to see what Pete thinks of the painting. That is what truly inspires me!!! I am also working on some children's t-shirts that say Peace for Haiti. The proceeds will go to a charity that benifit the Haitian Children. I want our children to show compassion and support to the Children of Haiti that have been devastated by this horrific natural disaster. Stay tuned............

I am finally getting the kids and I settled into our new home!! I will say that I have learned something new about myself, I am very handy and I am a horrible painter!! I know I can paint murals and canvas paintings but when it comes to painting a room.... UGH!!!! Paint everywhere.. I miss spots... paint on the trim... it is a mess!! LOL!!!! I did however install a chandelier in my daughters room!!! YES!!! I can now add electrician to my resume!!! hahahahaha!!! Or you can say I know how to follow directions. I am having so much fun being creative with our new home!! I just finished my daughters room. I will post pictures soon, she went from a little girls room to a tween bedroom. Yes, mom's out there it can be done tastfully!! You just need some imagination and pick your battles!! Caroline picked the colors and I picked the accessories!! It really pulled together nicely. My twin boys want a Patriots Football room, they are still sleeping with flowered wallpaper on the walls and I told them until they can listen to me better the paper stays on!!! hahahahahaha for some reason I thought that would work in the first week, nope we are on week 3 now!!! Wallpaper still up!!! They will eventually wear me down as I am chomping at the bit to do their room. Lastly there is Drew my youngest, he wants a Spiderman room...... I am still brainstorming. Anyway,keep checking back for photo's!!!! They will be coming soon!!! Hope your New year is getting off to a great start!!! :-)

Hello World

I just spent a day with a very lively and fashion forward 16 year old from Sweden named Malin. My best friend and I took her shopping to the hot teen stores here in the U.S. Her favorite store was Forever 21!! Anyway, Malin was showing me her Blog page, I was so impressed at how she expressed herself through her web page. It was her personality oozing out of the computer screen. When we returned home from the mall she immediately took pictures of all the clothes she bought and instantly it was posted on her page. I am sure that her friends were excited and a little bit envious of the new fashions she scored here in the states!! Her page inspired me to start my own blog. I am not sure what my page will become .... I would love to share with you when I get a new client and how we come up with great ideas for custom Artwork for their children's bedrooms, playroom etc. I hope our ideas inspire you and you get just as excited to see the finished product as we do!! I am sure I will blog about other stuff as well and hopefully my personality and life's adventures will intrigue you enough to keep visiting me time and again!!
