Names in watercolor

These watercolors are the girls' names and their spiritual meaning. Underneath the name meaning I put a verse that goes a long with the meaning. My mom and dad used to have a plaque with my name and meaning (and verse) on it when I was young and I always remembered it. There was something special about it; just knowing my name meant something and that maybe I could live up to it. Very cool. Anyway, i did one of these for each of my girls and I did one for my four neices and nephews. They are all 8 x 10 on watercolor paper. I put them in a cute white frame (no matte, because there is a border already on it). These are $20 if anyone is interested. They do make wonderful gifts and a frame of that size is not very expensive (I will frame it for you for $40). Anyway, these pictures are just of the ones I did for my girls. The other ones I haven't gotten pictures of yet.

are you still doing these for $20? if so, i'd love to have one with "mary" done.

also - i'm looking at a frame that i've had to see what size it is - i don't know that it's a 20x24 - may be a tad bigger....will let you know. but a painting of mary peyton is what i want for my birthday (it's in september) and i've also got to get clearance from the photographer for you to "reproduce" the image, but he's a friend so i think it will be fine.

thanks for the quick responses today!

yes, the watercolors are $20 for 8 x 10; they are on watercolor paper, not canvas, so they require a frame, but frames of that size aren't expensive. You don't need a matte. Just let me know what colors you'd like and if you'd like me to look up the spiritual name meaning and a verse to go with it. You may already have a verse you like and that's fine.

Also, just let me know about the portrait. I'd love to do one for you. when you send your photos for that, send the one you'd like me to reproduce plus a couple extras so I can get an idea of her "look" and personality. That's helpful especially when I've not met the person.

Thanks, can't wait to get started!
