This beautiful painting was a gift from a very, very talented friend. It is one of my most cherished possessions as the sentiment was so so extremely thoughtful and of course it is of my beloved naughty Frenchie. When I received it, it was a total surprise, so unexpected and every time I look at it, it makes me over the moon happy! This beautiful piece of course is going into the nursery for the baby, how could it not? In fact, when I received it I thought, ‘this would be perfect for a nursery‘, that was way before I knew I would ever get pregnant (btw, I am very pregnant these days). It was with a thrill of delight that I saw that said friend had taken the plunge and opened up a print shop of her charming characters, both Michelle and I said in unison ‘there’s a children’s book here’.
Miss Ez Pudewa, you may know her better as the authoress of Creature Comforts Blog has opened her shop (and a peek into her portfolio!) I am so excited for her as I have been singing her praises for ages now, ever since she blew my mind with a ‘doodle’ of a bird painted with her morning tea (I looked for the link, but couldn’t find it, but trust me it would blow your mind as well). I am hoping more and more of the world discovers both her talent and range as an artist, which she truly is the girl that can do pretty much anything creative with gusto. What I admire most about Ez is what an amazing mom she is, I have been following her journey since she launched into the blogosphere, I have been one (of many) of her biggest fans, but what endears me to her is how her daughter is always her top priority. I had the pleasure of finally meeting her daughter in person this summer and she is as you would expect from a mom like Ez- beautiful, kind, polite, intelligent and of course creative. I hope that I can instill all those characteristics in my my own daughter. I do hope you visit Ez’s shop and give her some well deserved love and congrats Miss Ez, well done, bravo, hoorah and wishing you tremendous success!
P.S. Just for awe factor this is the first Frenchie (maybe dog?) that Ez ever painted. Pretty impressive, right?
