Lettering Lately

Here’s a few updates of what I’ve been lettering lately…..

This one was for an Assistant Principal at my school, with school colors. Canvas is 12″x16″

These 3 12″ squares are going over a set of french doors in a family room. Every time I paint I think about the words….where they will go in a space and what they mean….it is truly a privilege to create words for home and to gift.

This one is for an adoption celebration. Little Izzy is so loved. As per usual, the iPhone doesn’t capture the real colors well, but this was coral, turquoise and gold, and is 16″x20″.  You can also see it peeking out from the 3 above.  Has been a busy month of lettering! 🙂

Our school officer saw the Asst Principal canvas and wanted one too. Since I’ve created 7 more of these for ISD officers.  I gave this to her on 9/11, also my last day at school, and was just reminded again the sacrifice First Responders make on a daily basis from streets to schools.  Thankful for them and again, honored so many have asked me to create for them.

Sweet little Oliver. I love seeing pieces in their places! His name block (4″x 12″) is on a bookshelf in the cutest Harry Potter themed nursery. This little one is special, I babysat his Mama starting when she was 6 weeks old! I love itty-bitty-tiny-newborn babies!!

Speaking of families, this canvas (18″x24″) was for a 50th Wedding Anniversary that was a surprise. I loved the numeric counts on this representing years and family, but also the countless memories, blessings and love they have.  50 Years is a legacy, and so thankful for those who persevere together through life’s ups and downs, they are a role model for us all!

And, this is a sneak peek for a bride who’s getting married this weekend! They will be married in an outdoor ceremony and this is a piece to their decor. I can’t wait to see it all together. Finished pic coming next post!

A couple more projects are in the works and I’m always taking orders. Remember for ideas and previous posts click (here) to Lettered Art on the blog homepage.

    Hi Angie – Happy Fall! And October! You do beautiful lettering/artwork. How long does it take for your average piece? I make jewelry as a hobby, and some designs come really fast/easy, and some I have to fiddle with the beads over and over again.

    Have you started your new job with the ISD? I am praying for you – new job, transitions/changes, new co-workers, learning curve…

    Thank you for your kind words and prayers on 9/21 when I was feeling down and low and alone… I felt them!

    Woof to Mr B, too!

    Have a blessed day!

    Hi Laurie!
    Yes, October…Fall, scarf+cardigan+boots, pumpkin everything…ahhhh!! 🙂
    I can totally relate to being stumped, the Audrey canvas took me a long time this summer, but others, like your beading, come quickly!
    I did start the new job and thank you for the prayers. I love the job, and the commute is getting better!
    Have a great Friday and weekend ahead, praying peace for you, even in the silent.
