Painting + Styled Shoot Featured on "Inspired By This"!

Hi friends! 

I'm writing this from the Phoenix airport, currently sipping on a latte and waiting for my friend Elsa's flight to land! I'm really looking forward to showing her around town during her quick trip to Phoenix :) 

Since I create so much video content, and those are typically my blog posts, I figured with a few minutes to spare while waiting for her that I would share an exciting feature that happened today!

I am thrilled that a styled shoot I was a part of was featured on Inspired by This today! I painted the bar that you see in the photo above, but I have to give so much creative credit to Matiana of Dang! Fine Rentals and Designs and Matiana Mitchell Designs.

Matiana had been percolating this idea since starting her business, and the concept was "We like to horse around a throw a good party." How cute is that? As soon as I heard her idea I was in. She asked me to create a hand painted bar with my signature colorful cacti. 

It was really fun to create this large-scale piece that they attached to the bar. I incorporated light and warm-toned colors that would be a fun pop against the desert landscape. This colorful cacti garden came to life on the wood. 

You may have already seen this time lapse video of my painting process for the piece back in November, but at the time I couldn't share the details because we were waiting on the feature :) Now I can share it again here with a little more context! 

Be sure to head over to the feature on "Inspired by This" today to see all of the fun elements that brought this shoot together, and all of the amazing local friends. I'm honored to call many of them my friends!

Thanks so much for reading today + for your continued support!
