I was invited to be featured in a friend’s fabulous blog, Annie’s Palette; please take a look. You’ll have the chance to learn a little bit more about myself as an artist and see Annie’s beautiful artwork within her site: https://www.anniespalette.com/post/new-feature-meet-the-artist
I was approached by a high school friend to create this special painting for him and his beautiful wife. They now have it framed and sitting in their foyer. Here is the feedback I received from my happy customers:
“Wow! Thank you so much Michelle for our special frogs. With a last name like Hoppe, ya can’t help but take on the little croakers as the family mascot.
I greatly appreciate your time and care in the project.”
I am thrilled to have had the privilege to create this special piece of art for them. If you love this painting, I’m happy to announce it’s available on several products. Check out my Society6 store here:
I’m finally finished with “Stacy’s Sunflower.”
On February 4, 2020, my best friend lost her battle to cancer. She put up a good fight for four years. My heart is broken, but it helps to know that she is in a better place and at peace. Stacy and I knew each other since high school. We shared many great memories together.
This sunflower represents my love and friendship I had for her. I was so very blessed to have a friend like her.
Her memory will live on in my heart for the rest of my days.
May she Rest In Peace. ❤️
I am happy to announce that I have sold my second original piece of art, Ernesto the Secret Santa Owl to a dear friend, Kimberlie Richter. I am grateful and humbled. My hope is that this painting puts a smile on everyone’s face that views it.
The original might be sold, but you can still find Ernesto on several products by visiting my Society6 store here: https://society6.com/oneartsymomma?curator=oneartsymomma
Ernesto the Secret Santa is finished. The original is available for purchase. Comment below if you are interested in purchasing this cutie of an owl.
Ernesto will soon be available on several outstanding products from Society6 and other Product-On-Demand online stores.
I’m also excited to announce that my daughter and I are brainstorming a book about this cute little owl, Ernesto. Keep your eyes peeled, hopefully by Christmas 2019.
I am super excited to share this great news. I have sold my very first original painting!! I want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Chris Brown for their purchase of my “Owl Lovers” watercolor painting. They gifted this painting to their daughter, Meagan.
I am excited about this new way of sharing my art. In the past, I have always created my art digitally, and now I am experimenting with watercolors and having an absolute blast with this fun medium. It certainly is different creating on paper rather than my computer screen and stylus.
I plan to start selling originals and offering prints and many other products as well. Keep your eyes peeled for my next art pieces.
I’m almost finished with Ernesto the owl. Just need some finishing touches and he’ll be looking for a new home.
I’ve put several fun hours into creating this plump Christmas owl and I can’t wait to see what he will look like on tote bags, wood art, and all the other products available in my online shops. I’ll keep you posted when the original is available and when the products are loaded in my shops.
I’m almost finished with this adorable owlet watercolor painting. Owls are my all-time favorite birds and a frequent subject of my art pieces. Owls are beautiful and mysterious looking birds. I adore them so much.
I am a beginner watercolorist and have been enjoying practicing. I feel that I’m getting better every day. Like they say, “P
Lately, I have been trying out watercolor pencils, watercolor sticks and my latest is my new watercolor Sketchers’ Pocket Box from this awesome company, Winsor and Newton. They are some superb quality watercolor paints. I highly recommend
I can’t wait to see how much I’ve improved, a year from now.
