We have had a great response of our readers sending in art on their walls! Thank you all. Today we are featuring Patty's Ephipanies. Patty is so loyal, sweet and supportive! She and MC sent in some art created by their grandaughter Erica Dougherty. Let's learn a little about her.
Erica graduated from NC State with a degree in Graphic Design. Among her art talents are custom pieces for those interested in preserving personal "treasures" similar to her Christening Dress below. She uses a medium that preserves fabrics. Here is her Etsy site: irisiDesigns, so you can see more of her work.
This acrylic painting in Patty's office was inspired by the colors, textures and stucco of their former condominium in Charlotte, so Erica put it to canvas!
Patty says "Erica turned our family Christening Dress from the late 1800's into a
treasure for us to keep forever. She is a WIZ working with textures. This piece has given her the opportunity to preserve items for anyone who has that special piece they want to keep forever."
Whenever Patty and MC needed a piece of art they'd commission Erica to create one for a special spot! This one she painted for over a long kitchen counter in their former Norfolk, VA home. She put a mosaic tile from the counter top in each panel.
This Asian Lady was for the spot over their fireplace in their Norfolk, VA home:
How special is art that you love created by someone you love! That's the best!
Thank you Patty for sharing this treasure of yours, who just happens to be related! Check out her etsy site here!
