Congratulations Joey and Stacey!

My cousin Joey just got engaged to his soul mate. He is very talented photographer. Please visit his page here. When I got engaged, Joey treated me to an engagement portrait session at The Grounds for Sculpture. Naturally, it was my privilege to use my creative skills in celebration of this event. If you’re interested in a custom watercolor engagement or wedding portrait, please e-mail me at jashmen@gmail.com or visit my Etsy shop.

Congratulations, Joey and Stacey! I wish health and happiness to you both.

Full of Spirit

The following watercolor piece was commissioned by an old friend. It is of her and her fiance. She is framing the watercolor with their vows and giving it to him their wedding day. I am honored to have been chosen to create such an important painting.

The Drawing of the Three

On October first, my husband and I threw a huge party celebrating our recent marriage. My sister Maria, my sister Brianna, and I got our hair done together. As the three of us are artists, we each drew a sketch while waiting for our turn in the seat. This is one of the very few blog posts that will include drawings I did not make. I am the oldest of the three. Maria is five years younger than I am. Brianna is ten years younger than Maria.

These drawings are dear to me and are not for sale.
