the abc's of bobbi becker

I have been adding new letters to my alphabet designs...and almost have it all done ...except for K which I wanna redo ...and T...oh  and Z...my idea was to design the letter with flowers & butterflies and birds that started with that letter but as it goes in my designing...sometimes I go off in a whole other idea...possibly from customers & friends suggestions...so here are some & the new display I did on my wall in my gallery...all my frames are handmade & I paint & decorate each one!!! Yesss I LOVE decorating the frames ...and doing a new softer, lighter...may I say more feminine  line of frames...new things inspire me{ and YES!! I do jump around the workshop some days when I do a new frame & a New painting & they go together in such magnificence :)
C is for chamomile, cupcakes and
 ...a friend said I shoulda' added more cats

one of my early initials...a customer had a daughter whooz' name started with M ..and she loved daisies & ladybugs..

this is one of my absolute favorites...because I love so many "L" things?? YES!!!  Luna Moths, Lilies of the Valley, Ladybugs dancing with lollipops.....too much fuuuun !!!
More to follow..........

So Whats new in bobbi becker's woods???

I Love Spring...and like the rest of you... in the last couple weeks I've felt like I've crawled outta' hibernation....my wildflowers are blooming, walks by the creek are full of Spring surprises...and the sun ...aah the sun is warm...the breeze is warm...quite frankly I can't take enough photos -inspiration for paintings (I took 100 yesterday:) or paint fast enough...did i tell you I LOVE SpRING??? :)

Virginia Bluebells by the creek...
I captured this on an evening walk with my dogs
 violets fill my lawn...if it were up to me I would not mow till they are done blooming...artists  sometimes think differently then most people :)









One of my Fern paintings
 from one of my photos of my ferns....

Ferns jes' emerging...I can't take enough photos of ferns!!
 I am obsessed with them...its a good thing as I have already started paintings of ferns in different positions

i LoVe my customers!!

My dear customers give me some of the greatest ideas...am so lucky!! First to get to hear their memories, then to be a part of their lives...and the icing on the cake??? I get to create for them!!
{ I would do it for free if I didn't have to pay my electric bill!  ..ReaLLY??!!}

These dear customers {and now friends} wanted me to do a painting of all the houses they had lived in...I jes' so happened to have a 7"x 27" frame in my inventory which I thought would work great...they brought me their family photos & ..let the brainstorming/creating BEGIN!! I wrote down some details ...and they emailed me some other thoughts ..I did a rough sketch for them...to make sure we were on the same page ...and....here's what WE came up with....so fun!! Am truly honored ......
Their 1st house with a 6 month old daughter in a baby buggie and young son who loved to ride on his big wheel...such fun...

2nd House..ah look another son ...playing baseball in the front yard



The Original watercolor framed of all the houses 
3rd house kids a lil' older...playing soccer & their daughter heading off to swim practice...this is one of my favorites...lotsa' detail with flowers & their favorite Crepe Myrtle 

4th House where they are now retired and enjoying four fantastic grandchildren...OH??!! and a 5th on the way...thus the stork :)
They wanted prints of the original so we had  a set printed for each of their kids
