My favorite artist is...

my daughter Sarah Wain!  I just picked up this framed original today and hung it in my kitchen...isn't it delicious? (Please ignore the bad photography and glare from my funky chandelier.)

These beautifully realistic chocolate-covered strawberries are actually an oil painting (on canvas) that I just had framed at my local needlework shop, Heart's Desire in Wichita, Kansas. We added a neutral mat and frame, and glass, since it's hanging in my kitchen. I'm so thrilled to have it in the busiest room in our house!!

Now my kitchen has a smorgasbord of dessert art, with this cupcake print hanging over my stovetop. This frame and mat used to hold a rooster print, but I de-poultried it and popped in the cupcake print. Easy!

Want to see more? Check out Sarah's website at www.sarahewain.com. She has originals and high-quality prints available at really reasonable prices. The cupcake above is a custom-order she just painted for my sister-in-law Donna, who chose the colors to complement her kitchen.  Sarah is currently an under-employed art teacher (unable to get a contract) working as a special ed para at an elementary school in Bloomington, IN.  While she would LOVE to get an art teacher position (anyone have a job out there?), the para job gives her lots of extra time to paint!

Yes, life is just a bowl of cherries!!!

  3. Wow~ your daughter has a true talent! I Love her work...so realistic! Makes me want to just reach out and grab it! Thank you for sharing!

  4. I am amazed at her artwork. I have been in the framing/art/needlework business for a long time, and I have never seen anyone that is better! My goodness, do you all have a hungry tummy all the time? Mine is growling as I write!
