Recently, a young mother, about to give birth, commissioned me to paint a personalized box, to be given as a one-of-a-kind gift to the doctor delivering her baby. The box was to be painted with images of lilac flowers, a cat (the lady doctor is a cat lover – yay! So am I!), and it was to have an inscription painted inside – a few words expressing the parents’ gratitude. My husband made the box (9.8 x 6.6 x 4.7 inches/25 x 17 x 12 cm) and I painted it. Here is the result… I wrote (painted) the inscription by hand, with a paintbrush (no stencils).
