Super feminine and eclectic and just fun! I painted this for my newest niece who I love to bits:)

Green Tree

The Letter S

Sweet and simple for a darling babe to be! Can come in any letter;)

For a friend:)

Having two boys myself, it's ALWAYS a pleasure to paint for little girls! Pink, pink PINK!

"peace on canvas" KH

There is something about a tree blowing in the wind... the beauty and the grace. So like my sweet friend, Marcy, and her "to-be" baby Scarlet!

hoo-hoo doesn't love a modern owl?

This three-some gives a peek into the past with the elegant rose buds and soft hues. I custom painted these to accompany the lovely crib bedding my friend chose for her darling daughter. One of my very first paintings:)

Let all that you do...

8 months ago, sweet friends of mine celebrated the birth of their sweet son while mourning the loss of their other precious son. Both boys have brightened my life and touched hundreds of hearts with their stories. I wanted this painting to let this family know how much we love them, and honor the life of their kids. Carolina blue!

Dear P, even from the other side of the country, you are loved. Prayed for. And adored.
And C, you are loved and missed by all, see you in Heaven.

E-dotes Classic

Loving yellow- this pop of lemon chiffon in the background of this reaching white tree is just my fave. And as always, dump on some paisley shaped leaves. I love this 12 x 12 canvas- a perfect addition to a gender neutral nursery! All parts of this design can be re-created in any color combination to suit your fancy. Every canvas by mares-e-dotes is original, and I'd love to create something custom for you. If you want to win this very painting, head over to Leigh's blog and enter the giveaway she's hosting to bring her babies home from Ethiopia!
