2014: A Year in Review

2014 was a tumultuous year for me (and, I think Jay, too). I started the year as a newly engaged person, full steam ahead on planning our wedding in May and sewing my wedding dress and having bridal showers and practicing braiding my hair.

House Hunting (and a new Painting!)

We are looking for a new house. I can't help but get emotionally attached to certain houses we see... maybe it's the nesting instinct or just my normal emotionally reactive personality. I think "I can see us raising our family here!" and then all rational thought goes out the window. Good thing Jay can keep a level head. 

New York Brownstone Watercolour Portrait

It's pretty much my dream to have a brownstone in New York. This is a recently finished commission, but I was drooling with jealousy the whole time! Everything, even the doors, is so beautiful and cool. ​

Ahhh, sigh of envy. ​

​On the plus side, this was a pleasure to paint, and I'm so happy with it. Happily, the owner agreed to let me add it to my portfolio, so I can share it with all of you! 

Now, back to painting flowers... I've moved on to apple blossoms.​

...And It Will Make an Even Bigger Bang!

really don't feel like rushing things lately. I know all the other bloggers posted happy new years resolution posts on New Years Day, and I was super inspired, yet I felt absolutely no urge to make resolutions or post anything. Ha! What! I know... it's like, "Who is this girl? Amanda must have been abducted by aliens."
