Paintings For Ember and Tristan

my palette

Two years ago when my first grandchild was born, I decided to paint something especially for her -- to be hung in her bedroom. I wanted the subject matter to be something she wouldn't outgrow quickly, and include things she'd encounter during future walks around her neighborhood.

My painting for Ember Rose, Nov. 2009

My plan was to continue the tradition as each new grand baby came into my life. That happened almost exactly a year later, and I have been so busy playing with these two babies that I haven't finished the second painting... 

But...I have a goal to finish it before Nov. 1st when my novel-writing challenge begins. I thought it would be fun to share the painting-in-progress with you.

painting for Tristan
Here's what it looked like in June.

Here's what it looks like today.
The letters in his name will be painted over and around the  creatures.

I have lots of fun still ahead on this one. Every painting is a new experiment.

If I don't finish it before Nov. 1st, at least I will be close.

Happy Creating Everyone!


  1. How cool that each of your grandchildren will have one of your wonderful paintings created especially for them. Fun to see this one in progress.

    Good luck writing your novel. I'll look forward to hearing more about it. Have FUN!!

  2. Wow! Those are beautiful, thanks for sharing! You'll be in my thoughts for your novel completion challenge, you go!

  3. These are awesome Lacie! And so beautiful too! What a great idea! :)

  4. Umm, not only do you have your writing task, but you also have another grandchild coming around that time, so you better get crackin'!
