This is a non-vintage post, but something that is very important to me. ♥️ I want to show you this amazing #artist I had the distinct pleasure of working with. Theresa is amazing. So caring & kind. She truly invested herself in the project I hired her for, & I am thankful to have met her.
I lost my mother & brother just 3 months apart last year, & I wanted something special to always look at. I sent her about a dozen pics of my mom + a dozen of my brother. We literally worked together over messages while she created specifically what I was imagining. I didn't want to just take a photograph and transfer it to a painting. I wanted a brand new image, so I could imagine this is them present-day.
Theresa's deep understanding & unbelievable amount of patience granted my wish! She also became a friend, and I found myself confiding in her when I needed to talk about them. So I felt like she actually knew my mom & brother! She is one-in-a-million.
I love my painting. It's better than I hoped for. It was difficult to choose which #Etsy artist to use, and even that process took a couple weeks! Narrowed it down to 10, then down to 3, and finally decided on #TheresaStites (#PaintedPresence ). It was meant to be!
I can't express my gratitude enough. I'll never forget her!! ♥️ #EtsyArtist#EtsySeller#HandmadeEtsy#OilonCanvas#etsyportraits#EtsyPainter#shopEtsy#bestofEtsy#missmymom#missmybrother#RobertVarney
