My Latest Paintings!

The month of October was filled with ART! Yay! October is already one of my favorite months of the year, but then to add several painting projects to it, well that makes it even better! I was asked to do 2 different commissioned paintings, both an honor & a challenge! The First - An acrylic painting of a wedding dress. My friend & neighbor, Julie, had seen a dress painting in the background of a movie set, which gave her the vision to have one painted for her own home. She picked out the color palette & loaned me a photo of her wedding dress, & I got to work! I never had realized how difficult painting a dress could be - getting the proportions right on the neckline, bodice & length was a fun challenge! 24x36 Acrylic ©2013AlisaNelsonStudio

The Second - A watercolor/ink for Michael Armstrong's office at Henderson Hills Baptist Church in Edmond, OK. He has been a meteorologist for years & recently made a career change into the ministry. He & his lovely wife asked for a watercolor painting of a storm with the verses, Matthew 8:26 & Isaiah 60:20. The storm was quite the challenge but it was awesome to watch it come to life! 24x36 watercolor/ink ©2013 AlisaNelsonStudio
