My First Painting of the Year, and More to Come!


















My favorite time of the year is Spring and here is my first inspiration of the season. It was taken from a photo I had of an urn filled with Eden roses sitting on my kitchen table. It will be made into a giclee canvas print and on my website soon! I don't have a name for it yet ,maybe you can give me some suggestions.XO Christie
P.S. I decided to join Kathleen for White Wednesday, fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com , check out all the fabulous blogs with white decor and ideas!

  8. Hello Christie... oooh, your new painting is so beautiful!... I think a beautiful name for it would be "Anais"... I am of French heritage, and one of my great~great grandmothers names was Anais, which means "grace, or graceful"... and since pink roses signify gracefulness as well, I loved that!... Spring is my very favorite time of year as well... I believe I told you I own one of your beautiful paintings... oooh how I would love to own this one too!... xoxo Julie Marie

  34. Christie,
    I love this. I've always loved urns and I've been drawn to birds lately, too. You've gotten some great suggestions on names. Here's some more...Eden's Wings, Eden's Inspiration, Eden's Nest, Nest of Eden, or Nesting in Eden? They may sound better in French? I don't know, now I'm rambling, ha-ha!
    Have a super blessed week!

  37. That painting just takes my breath away. Beautiful! Here is a suggestion "sweet urnest" (it's a play on words) earnest means "with sincerity" Nest is even in the word.
    Blessings,
    Karon
    note: I met you at the Redlands show and Old Glory in Riverside. If you ever teach painting I'll be the first to sign up!
