Harlequin Border

Jessica, a bloggy friend, ordered a tile a few weeks ago, and I am so glad she did! This tile was so much fun to paint! She began by emailing me a color scheme, which was all jewel tones. She was very specific in what she wanted, which I loved because it made the design easy to paint and very personable. She wanted a black and white harlequin border, and anyone who knows me well knows that I love harlequin with a capital "H". She wanted polka dots, and chose a verse from Hebrews- "Always remember to entertain with strangers, for by doing so, many people have entertained angels without knowing it." She plans to hang it somewhere where company will be sure to spot it. Jessica, I appreciate your business! Thanks again!

(For those of you who have recently inquired about tiles, I charge $30 for a 1/2 tile, and $35.00 for a full tile. Email me directly at jessicaabarnes@yahoo. com for more info.)
