With Stars In Your Eyes

WITH STARS IN HER EYES. 7×7″ on wood. Available in my etsy shop.

This painting is all about realizing your dreams and, being fearless…making them happen., no matter who tells you you’re dreaming the impossible. Fill your world with dreams of living in the south of France, wearing ball skirts barefoot to garden parties, and eating chocolate in big cities at midnight. Live life 
WITH STARS IN YOUR EYES!


WITH STARS IN HER EYES. 7×7″ on wood. Available in my etsy shop.

This piece was so fun to create! I had no idea I’d be painting a princess girl when I started. And she’s quite lovely that the background began with layers of red, white and blue…colors I always seem to come back to. My favorite blanket as a child was a lovely (and rather tattered) red, white and blue with two different quilted designs on either side. So whenever these colors come into play in my artwork, I always get the feeling it’s the child in me coming out. And of course this princess is no exception. 

To create her dress, I simply had to cut the ruffles from a travel guide on visiting the south of France! I added more of the pages for her crown! She is absolutely dreaming!

Thank you so much again for all of your support and kindness…the lockets have sold out! And I can’t wait for all of you to get your beautiful jewelry!

On Monday, I’ll be sharing a new project I’ve been working on! 

Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. If only I dared! No,wait, that's not it. I will go to the S. of France; I will go there and eat cake; I WILL wear a swirly skirt in France. I am writing this one hundred times on my chalk board and then again on a dream board! Thanks for the inspiring painting, Juliette!
