A short post this evening but a rather exciting one: I have a new banner! Rosie and me flying over the Highlands. 🙂 Isn’t it gorgeous? Chuffed to bits with it!
The original painting (which will be hanging in my living-room very soon) is by Faye Anderson, an artist and friend whose work I’ve adored since she drew a gorgeously intricate birthday card for a mutual friend. Ten years on I was reminded of how wonderful her work is when I received the following invitation her and Ross’s wedding.
It’s caught them perfectly!
Faye has now set up her own business designing personalised invitations/greeting cards and painting commissions. To see more of her work visit:
Wendy, this is fantastic!!! What a beautiful, beautiful banner. I really don’t know how to say how much I love it. How fabulous to have a portrait like that in your living room. I can’t wait to check out more of her work, and I love her wedding invite too.
It really is a fantastic banner! I braved my very slow internet connection (this days i really appreciate having rss) especially to have a look at it, and i’m glad i did! it really is gorgeous. It oozes breezy light but active mood… am i making sense? hm. never mind! great banner! 🙂
Oh I agree, simply wonderful!!
The banner is beautiful!!! Fantastic!
Wendy, it’s marvelous. You and Rosie, flying across Scotland…inspired!
How cool is it that Rosie looks like she’s totally blissful, ears flying. Perfect.
