Pray for baby Rhys

3 people sent this link to me today, so I checked it out. What a small world? It turns out that I went to high school with the father!

Rhys was a twin who was born 13 weeks early. His twin passed away, but little Rhys is fighting for life. He has a grade 3 brain bleed as well as respiratory problems. He undergoes transfusions, stays on oxygen, and has several lines pumping morphine and several other drugs into him. I'm not sure how much Rhys weighs, but as you can see in the pictures on the blog, it's not much. He was born 2 weeks ago and has been fighting to stay alive every minute of every day and night. Please say a prayer for little Rhys as well as his family.

Here's his blog: www.ok-corral.blogspot.com


Debby from Rosharon, Tx was my most recent business. She works with Jake and had seen another canvas I did for another one of their co-workers' granddaughter, Hailey. So I whipped up this 12x24 sign for Mr. Dylan. The nursery bedding is Wendy Bellissimo's Petite Safari but I'm not very good at painting life-like animals, so I opted for something very simple and clean/classic. It was one of easiest signs I've done but it turned out to be one of the best!!

Fancy monogram

I had a record 2 sales on my etsy site in the month of June!!! (sing "Celebrate good times come on!!" by Cool & the Gang) Tamika from Carrollton, Tx ordered a monogram wall hanging for her new home and I think it turned out so beautiful. The background design was a pain in the butt to paint but in the end, it was so worth it!
