travel love


A delightful Mother of three came to me to create a special illustration to commemorate a special family trip to Central Park, New York to give to her husband.
When I lived in the city, I loved making a pilgrimage to Central Park.
A picnic, a walk, a run or just finding a bench to absorb the sites in the heart of the city can be like a mini-vacation.
There is something so special about traveling to a place that brings back wonderful memories.

Let me know if you need a special work of art to keep the memory of your travel love alive.

I love New York...the park the buildings, all of it. So looking at your photos I already have taken a mini vacation! I am sure that this family will have this memento as an heirloom for years to come! Thanks for sharing. :-)

Hmmmm.....I'm thinking Paris. Wish I had better pictures! That would be really fun to give to my son.

Or the ranch...that would be fun to give to Grant.

Central Park always makes me feel special no matter how many times I'm there it's always new.

of all of New York... Central Park was my very favorite. Just seeing the perfect line of trees beside the line concrete and stone from a high perch makes you want to rung in and play all day.
