This piece was a gift for a little girl who loved to sing and perform. Her family’s three dogs each make an appearance, and every family member is holding flowers to toss her. I wanted her to feel like a very loved little princess.

This couple travels the country in their van. A family member commissioned me to create this gift image for them. The pattern of the hill is based on a blanket pattern that appeared in many of their instagram pictures.
