I'm sitting here in my studio with the cold air from the AC blowing in my face (because, SUMMER) and an almost 5-month-old chewing on my arm (because, HUNGER), and I've just updated my Wait List to see where we're at with portraits for the second half of the year.
It looks like right now I'm booking into early October, which means I only have about 8 more weeks to fill in my schedule before I close my 2017 Wait List. Yikes!
I know it's weird to be thinking about Christmas when it's 115 degrees outside and your sweating your buns off, but alas! When one decides to paint everything meticulously by hand, one must plan ahead!
May I perhaps recommend something to you?
Think of the one person in your life who is the HARDEST to buy for. Are you thinking of this person? For me, it's my husband and his grandparents. My husband loves to say "just don't worry about getting me anything for Christmas this year" (biiiiig eye roll from me). And my in-laws have everything. So every year I stress myself all out thinking about what in the world I'm going to get these folks.
Here's my recommendation to you. Just buy them an ornament. Think of something meaningful for me to paint on the front and viola. It's done. Piece of pumpkin pie!
Or perhaps you want to go all out and get a custom portrait. Perfect. You'll impress some people- trust me!
It's really easy and now is the time.
