My Sister's Artwork

This post is LOOOOOOOOOOONG overdue, but here it finally is--the painting my twin sister Mandy did for me several months ago!!! It wasn't even dry yet when she sent it down with my parents earlier this year, so she didn't get to take pictures of it. I promised her I would. The first time I tried, every single picture I took was crooked. I don't think anyone could make this fantastic of a painting look bad, but my lack of photography skills just didn't do this artwork it justice! These pics aren't a ton better, but the painting itself is just fabulous!!!


I wanted something high-impact with LOTS of color. I saw something similar in a store with a pretty steep price tag...so, talented as she is, Mandy gave me exactly what I wanted--even better than what I had originally seen! I have to admit I got a killer deal, because, I am, after all, related to the artist! :)

super close up--just look at that detail work!
This is my favorite part of the whole painting.

Thanks, Mandy, for helping me to make my house a home. Now, if only I could get around to painting the walls and getting some window treatments up, we'd be in good shape!!! :)

So glad you like it!!!~ Wish I could use turpentine while I am pregnant to do some more oil paintings, but I guess I will have to wait until next summer!
