sponsor giveaway – missy’s portraits

My name is Melissa (a.k.a. Missy) and I am a wife to my darling hubby Jason and a new mother to my beautiful little angel Elizabeth (we like to call her Betsy).

When I first became a mother and I began my maternity leave, I knew immediately that I did not want to go back to work full time. I wanted to be a full time mom AND try get back to my first love – painting. Betsy inspired me to specialize with portraits of children after I had painted a portrait of her at only 9 weeks old.

I have a bachelor degree in Art and I have been painting for 20 + years. It is my true passion.

Please let me know if you would like to a custom portrait painted. All you need to do is send me a photo and I will recreate it into a original work of art.

    The portrait I’d like to have done is one of the only GOOD photos we got of my daughter the day she was born — we actually forgot our camera so all her “birth day” pictures are on our iPhones. There’s one picture in particular that turned out really nice & would love to have it recreated:)

    It’s magic when one chooses to take a chance on their gifts and pursue them as their trade…and sometimes it’s the gift of a child that pushes us to do just that.

    {I liked you on facebook. A lovely giveaway. And, I would probably have you paint our children.}
