Canvas Painting

As you all know, I often get canvas painting commissions. This one came in again from Lauren Leitner, who is a designer down in Florida. I also did this painting for a client of her's a couple of months ago, and just finished this new one last week.

My pics don't do the colors justice, and I probably should've photographed it in my studio with the natural light on it, but instead I took pictures in my living room (with soccer playing on the tv behind it, no less - ugh!)...but hopefully you get the idea.

I think it seems really happy. It's going in a baby girl's nursery over the crib, and I think it's perfect for that!

The background color is a coral - not orange. Not sure what it's looking like on peoples' monitors. I always hate sending pictures of things to clients, because the colors are often misrepresented, and the composition always seems weird, too.

detail shot:


I'll post the picture that Lauren sends me of the painting hanging in its new home as soon as I get it!

If you'd like to commission a canvas (they can be shipped anywhere!), please email me at

  11. So fabulous Kirsten! I really think you ought to try oil--it's awesome for amping up the texture and shine. Good luck with everything!

  12. Kirsten, you have a great hand also have a great taste of thinking because i believe a paintings is beautiful only when its comes out from any thinking rather than professional mind.
    But why don't you use these type of beauty for home decoration? I personally know a company the website is, they are taking pictures and also paint them on canvas, and also sell them as home decorating equipment, if you wish then you can check their website also.

  13. And so fantastic Kirsten! I consider you need to attempt oil--it's amazing Ibeacons for amping in the structure in addition to stand out. Enjoy with everything!

  14. Let's be honest, driving is fine and dandy, yet there are positive preferences to having your own particular method of transportation. Banks will secure advances for individuals who need to get their own particular vehicles, BUT just inside a sensible level.payday loans
