Welcome Home Candle manufactured by Lang

I am always excited to see new products developed. Introducing my collaged House artwork on this candle manufactured by Lang. I can just smell the candle burning…apple, clove, orange & juniper berry.
This image can also be found in my Favorite Things calendar produced by Lang. A teacher and friend mentioned she was going to frame some of the art from the calendar for her class room, a great way to continue using the calendar even after the year is over.

Giraffe by Wendy & Chloe Bentley

Upon Chloe’s request: “Mamma, let’s paint something together,” and so we did. All the pieces came together…I had a 12″X24″ inch canvas already painted that had been laying around for years. I often looked at it and wondered what it might become some day. I had a request from Kyle, (Chloe’s big brother) to receive an artsy birthday gift and wondered what would I paint for him? And I had Chloe’s sketches from her art class of giraffes that I loved…wonderful drawings from a six year old, right?! We painted and collaged this piece and then shipped it off to New York City.

Door D├ęcor by Wendy Bentley & Chloe

Several years ago, I came up with an idea to create Door Decorations for each season. I never really found the right contact, but I did inspire my daughter, Chloe. (see further down the page for our creations)

Obviously, this is the Valentine’s Concept putting a little love in the air.

A wintry snowflake is always nice after Christmas.
I like the plaid patterns in the poinsettia. Finally a use for the flat marbles I bought at Michael’s during a mosaic-inspired moment…

Here are the Springy and cheerful flowers Chloe and I did. It is very much a “team effort.” Nothing is done without Chloe’s approval. Often times, she steps back to make sure she likes it before permanently gluing down.
Luckily, I have a huge bag of painted watercolor paper backgrounds and patterns that we create our flowers from with my little Art Director and creator.
I think we have even gotten a little more elaborate, as this is our latest one. 
I hope this puts a little “Spring” in your spirit today. Smiles…Wendy
