Thursday Portrait

Many of you have already seen this photo that Mr Ratburn took in our orchard. The skirt is one of my best selling items in my Etsy shop. It is fun to make, thankfully!
One of my favorite ETSY fine artists asked me if she could paint this picture and of course I said yes, and here it is! (click to biggen)

Summer Smiles by AlisaPaints.etsy.com

Didn't it just come out lovely? Alisa wanted to brighten up the apple trees because they were bare when the photo was shot and looked sort of Halloween hauntish, so she added the blossoms which I think look really wonderful.
So if you click on this link, you will get to Alisa's blog which is fun because you can see many of her works in progress, as well as finished artwork. But for serious purchase, you should check out her ETSY shop, which I have generously linked in this posting.
And here are some more of her original paintings and prints.

You all have heard me promoting ETSY before, and that's because for gifting, for clothing, for housewares, for soaps and lotions and many other wonderful things, you do not ever need to go to the mall again! Enough said.

Have a lovely day!

The painting came out great. Of course, it helps that the photo is so good to begin with.
