california dreamer

pve design - home illustration - commission artwork

When Mel contacted me to illustrate her "crumb" and the above home illustration for a friend, I of course jumped up and down but at the same time, was a tad nervous about living up to fulfilling the expectation. It is like that for me especially when I know that I am working to achieve something for someone with such a lovely style! Surely you all know Reverie-daydream, hop on over and see what Mel is dreaming up today!

I love Reverie and Mel is so sweet. Her little Crumb is adorable-I'm sure you have captured her cuteness.

I love both illustrations. Mel's little girl is adorable. I also love the color tiles on the roof of the house, and the other house scattered throughout the hilltops. So great!

What a sweet little girl! She will treasure this for years to come. I have a friend that wants you to create her Christmas card next year. Drumming up some business for you down here in Nashville!!

Love them both. You captured Mel's little crumb to a t and her friend will be thrilled with the illustration of their home. xo

Patricia, I am the same way ~ I get so excited, but nervous about living up to expectations. I think that is a good thing as we push ourselves a little further each time and set our standards high. I am working on a project right now in which I feel the same way and the client said it was more than she expected when I showed her my progress thus far. I am sure Melissa will feel the same. You did a tremendous job! She will treasure this forever!

After a few days of whirlwind holiday madness, I'm finally able to visit my friends - and look what I find! Patricia, you know how much these illustrations touched my heart! Cherish them forever, I will! You make the world a much more beautiful place!
