5x7 portrait. I think this will be my last one for a while, getting ready for our new addition! Maybe I'll actually paint baby portraits of my own kids someday!

Haven't made one of these in a while, good times. This is copper wire with freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals.

Lots of house portraits lately, I love it! I have a couple baby portraits and a wire tree coming up for something different. Hoping to get everything done before the baby decides to come! This one is 5x7 and as always, more beautiful in person

And another one! 4x6. Sometimes I paint houses lost to natural disasters or beloved childhood homes to help preserve all the wonderful memories of love and life that house has seen ❤

And here they are in the ornament frames. I wish you could see these in person, they are sooo cute (and paintings always look nicer in person!)

House portrait in progress. I'm excited to start in on the cottage itself, and then add some finishing touches across the piece. Such a beautiful place!

Thinking of ordering a custom portrait or custom wearable art for Mothers Day? Get your order in sooner than later, as I am going to become a mother again shortly after Mothers Day and won't have energy to paint for much longer!

Thank you for all your support, my family is very grateful that I am able to work from home doing something I love!

***Giveaway Closed!

Thanks everyone for your responses! I'm excited to start offering more choice in chains/length. I got over 30 replies, so I'm giving away FOUR gift codes!

WINNERS of the $15 gift codes (randomly selected in an online drawing website) are: BP, MH, SLS, and TT. I will message the winners shortly with the promo code.

Everyone else, please enjoy free shipping at Skipper Bay ($15 min purchase) now through the end of April using code SKIPSHIP418 ! This is good on custom orders as well, so use your imaginations! Thanks again! https://www.etsy.com/shop/SkipperBay?coupon=SKIPSHIP418

***
Poll and giveaway:
Which chain style/length do you prefer? I'm thinking of adding options to my listings.

If I get at least 10 responses, I'll draw randomly for a $15 gift card to either store (SkipperBay.etsy.com or SkipperBayPrints.etsy.com). Mother's day is coming up 😉

Options are:

Box Chain
Cable Chain
Snake Chain

Let me know the style you like best, and the length you prefer! Thanks!

(and apparently Facebook is limiting poll options to two in pages, so I have to do this the old-fashioned way).
