Ode to white

Today has been a day full of painting and I am pooped. I didn't finish the piece because...it is six feet by three feet! It wouldn't be a problem, except that is is to be painted horizontally, which means one side was on the stove and the other was over the sink. Somebody seriously needs a studio! 

Today's post is all about white...which so happens to be my favorite color. Why, you ask? Because every other color looks great with white. It's like a 6ft x 3ft blank canvas just waiting for a splash of color. Enjoy!

Until tomorrow...

Art mentions

Happy Friday everyone! Well, I must say that my day has started out exciting. My new friend Emily Johnston at EJ interiors posted my artwork on her blog Material Girls today. We just finished a commission together for her living room. You can see her post here.

A friend of mine asked me if I would want to have art show in her amazing home this fall. I am so excited to say that we are planning a show for September. So, until then I am trying to do a painting a week. Here is a preview of the one that I just finished.

I hope that you all have some fun holiday plans for this weekend. We are having a cook-out/birthday party at our house tonight (happy birthday Amy!) and some other fun stuff to do this weekend.

Until Monday...http://materialgirlsblog.com/dallas/

Monogram musts

Happy Wednesday everyone! Were any of you totally freaked out last night about the tornadoes? I was. I am not usually like that about weather alerts, but I was completely terrified. It just seems that so many storms have been brutal in the past few months. Whew, scary.
On a lighter note, I have recently fallen more in love with monograms. I don't have that many for Shepherd or myself, but that might just have to change. I took a few of these pictures from Lonny magazine and followed their link to the vendor...we are talking a load of change. But, my idea is to to take a sham to a monogram person and completely cheat the system and have them do it for me. I'll let you know if it turns out to be a success.

Aren't these fantastic? I'm in love. 
Until tomorrow...

May with a brush

Happy Monday one and all. Recently I thought that I lost all of my photos on my computer when I switched hard drives. Luckily I was wrong, but since then I have been backing things up like a mad woman. Has that ever happened to you? Terrifying. Here are a few pieces of art that I have done in the last few weeks, just in case my computer dies.  Also, if you are interested in a piece from me, please know that I am about a month backed up. Please be patient, I will make sure that it is worth the wait!

Until tomorrow...

Eleven months plus

Hey everyone! I have been M.I.A, I know. Shepherd was gone for a week and this week has gotten away from me with so much to get done. My little man is past eleven months, but better late than never, right?!! Right. Well, here he is.

These monthly pictures are getting more and more challenging. This kid is on the move. 
And here are a few pictures of Mother's Day. My parents and Grandma came down for my brother's graduation. Here are four generations of Schneiders. 

Until Monday...

Week off

Happy Tuesday everyone. I hope that you all had a great weekend. What were you all up to? My entire family was in town until yesterday. We had not all been together in a long time. I was good to be with everyone. My parents took Shepherd home with them last night until, get this...MONDAY! I miss him already, but I am really excited about the break. I am off to Starbucks and then the art store to pick up my goods for a week of painting. Here is some inspiration for you and me today. Enjoy!

Until tomorrow...

A year of motherhood

Happy almost Mother's Day to all those out there who are moms. It has been one year since I started this blog while I was on bed rest. Since then my life has changed so much because of this little precious person.

Me and my mom have always had a special bond and I cherish her completely. But, I have to say that now that I am a mom as well, it has taken my love for her to uncharted territories. To one of my closest and dearest friends, these pictures are dedicated to you mom.

Cherish the Mom that you have.
Until Monday...
