Laughter Sparkles Like Sunshine


My client, Cindy, asked if I could “do something” for her. She brought this phrase to me, written on a blank page of a checkbook register. She said she was starting early this year gathering Christmas gifts.

This piece turned out larger than I’d planned — typically I work in small intricate pages. I first planned for this to be an 8″ x 10″ piece when complete. This came in at double the size: 16″ x 20″! I used ink, watercolor, and a metallic watercolor called Finetec to achieve the light, shiny letters and lines.

Sidenote: Cindy hung this in her living room . . . Her early Christmas gift to herself? Life is good!
