I have been working on a commission for a client the past few weeks and I'm getting closer to finishing the painting.  It will be completed by then of today and ready for delivery next week.

My client is a grandma who loves her grandson very much and she wanted something that incorporated a very special poem along with items that respresnts the family careers and hobbies, so I thought of showcasing a young child playing in his room with a hope chest that showcased some of those items.

I'm working with a cotton wrapped canvas 22x28 and using a variety of acrylic paints that keep this Eco friendly and non-toxic.

My client also ordered some custom soap bars with Ylang Ylang essential oils. This oil has wonderful properties, The oil is characterized as intensely sweet, soft, and floral-balsamic, with a slightly spicy scent and a creamy-rich top note and it is use to calm breathing and for high blood pressure.  I love to use this in my soaps and natural perfumes for its beautiful scent.
