Here is a little peek at a painting I just finished. I’m calling her “Cecily”, I read the name in a book recently and thought it was lovely. A pretty name you dont hear too often.

I really didn’t have too much of a plan for her when I began, and therefore the painting is packed full of my favorite little odds and ends— a slightly spooky Queen Anne style doll, a little white church tucked in the back with a discreet grave yard off to the side. I didnt even realize this painting would be done as a night time scene, until I started painting the sky and decided it really needed stars.
And so. This is what came of all that. Hope you like it 🙂
You can find the painting HERE.

  1. I absolutely adore Cecily and that is such a pretty name too! She suits the name Heather and is so pretty in a thoughtful way….I also think the stars are a great addition to the painting!Your work is so good, so different and full of feeling and soul, I love it all! Do you do commissions for humble people like me? It's wonderful!Karen


  2. Cecily is absolutely beautiful! I love that touch of eeriness that comes out… great choice with the dark sky there! I think sometimes the best work are achieved from very little planning. 🙂

  4. Oh my, she is gorgeous. You are so talented, Heather. Wow. I love the art process! I love that you start out thinking you're going to do one thing (or not knowing at all) and it morphs and grows into a whole other thing! The fact that it's a night scene makes it special. Love it.
