Birthday Canvas

This is my sweet cousin Alyssa and her new-ish husband Jesse.  They are an adorable and fun couple and so perfect for each other! Alyssa’s sister (another of my adorable cousins!) took this engagement picture of them about a year ago.  She’s such a talent and you can see more of Melanie’s work here.

It was Alyssa’s birthday yesterday and my mom threw an impromptu birthday lunch for her, so I was trying to think of something super-fast to make, but personal.  This is what I came up with below.  I painted a tiny portrait of them on a stretched canvas.  I wish I had a little more time with it, but I kind of like the roughness of it.  Jesse is an artist and he paints BIG paintings.  In his words, “Go big or go home!” … I guess I’m goin’ home!  😀

    We found the perfect place for this cute little canvas! Picked up a mini easel from Blick and ta-da! More art for our front room :). I love it! Thanks again Liz!
