Custom Watercolors

Commissions are always good and it's more fun when people ask me to paint a portrait for them! 
These cute couples' portraits will make some awesome Christmas gifts this year :)

If you want to try your hand at one of these, I have an Easy Watercolor Portrait Tutorial that you can try.  Watercolors take some practice, but aren't as intimidating as they are cracked up to be.  Just give it a try!
(if you really aren't in the painting mood you can commission me to do one for you through my Etsy shop)

And here's a fun custom elephant painting I just finished yesterday.......
I keep discovering new ways to combine elephants and hearts

  1. Your elephants have just convinced me to make a herd of 6-8"lebkuchen cookie Indian elephants decked out for a parade-I never thought about making babies...yours are so sweet-holding heart balloons with their trunks! The mixture of colours you have used on the lead mama cow has me totally inspired! It's cookies today Elise!
    Peace,
