Cherished - SOLD

'Cherished' SOLD

6" x 6" oil on panel
$65 plus $10 US shipping or $15 International

All the news stories rolling in about the horrible tragedy that happened in Connecticut have made me cherish the life and health of my sweet boys even more. I can't imagine the pain those families must be feeling. They've been in my prayers and thoughts so often this weekend. And made me appreciate the blessings of piles of laundry and arguing brothers because it means my children are still here, alive and whole. 
This is one of the oil paintings I finished a while back, and it was one that I really, really liked. Although photographing it was a pain in the patella, I still think this isn't a real accurate match, but it's the best I can do. I loved the innocence in this sweet baby's face and the way she nestled in so close to her parent's shoulder.
I'm writing this post while still wearing my fluffy Rudolph pajama pants while looking at the glow of the Christmas tree. It's so peaceful. :)
I haven't been doing much painting lately with the hurry to finish up Christmas stuff (namely my tradition of making something handmade for my boys each year, and shipping out paintings, for which I am so thankful to my wonderful buyers!), which means I also have been slow to reply to emails and comments. But I will as soon as I can! I'm sure you all are feeling the crunch too. :) I hope you all have a great week! Huzzah for being alive one more day!!


  1. Just beautiful, Crystal!! I'm praying for those families as well as all the families that dropped their precious babies off at school this morning.

  2. Another wonderful painting! Blessings to you and yours.

  3. The innocence of this child is beautiful, Crystal..very well done! My thoughts and prayers are with these families in Connecticut as well!!

  4. It's a moving piece Crystal, innocent and haunting at the same time. I'm glad you are taking the time to enjoy the things that make Christmas special. Soak it all up this Christmas, as will I !

  5. What a lovely painting! I hope you have a great holiday season! Indeed every moment must be cherished, thanks for reminding me that :)

  6. It is so beautiful and moving. I'm always in awe!
    The news was just terrible and I can't get my head around it either. All tragedy's are awful - but one caused by a human is just unthinkable.

  7. A lovely painting Crystal. I see a big question in those innocent eyes ... I wonder what the child is thinking.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment they really do mean so much to me! Because not all bloggers have their email enabled so I can reply directly through email I will try to reply here in the comments. If I don't please forgive me, life must have been hectic that day! :)) Huzzah!!
