Last two for a while...

Well, here are the last two paintings for a while! The first is an 11x14 flat with a quote from the Great Debator and embellished with a bit of glitter. This was an experimental design.... what do you think? The second is a quick 8x10 flat for a new baby girl! Enjoy.... and hope to see you soon :) Hakuna Matata for now!

P.S. Sorry for the poor photos.... I forgot to take pictures before delivery so I snapped these in the car before I handed them over!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Sorry for my delayed absence from the blog and I will go ahead and apologize for the absence to come. My husband and I will be moving to Jacksonville, Florida in the coming weeks so I will be taking a break from painting to tend to the packing and moving.
There are just a couple more pieces to post and I will save them for tomorrow maybe! Until then, here are two from the holiday season... One is an old favorite in a new color and the second is another original for a little boy named Jonah's room. Enjoy!

Thankful for completed orders!!! Enjoy...

Well, I have a few more orders completed and managed to sneak in a "trial" painting. Let me tell you about the trial first. It is pictured below and is my first attempt at a cute personalized "Necklace Holder". Fitted with 4 cup hooks for hanging this is the perfect way to display your necklaces while keep them out of a tangled mess! Could be painted in a variety of patterns and colors... the possibilities are endless. I am dreaming of a "three tier set" to include the size pictured below plus one smaller for bracelets and one taller for the longer necklaces and accessories. What do you think? I would love to hear your feedback so be sure to comment :)

8x8 flat canvas B for my niece

5x7 "Valentine" for my best friend, Lane! (Valentines came in November this year :) )

8x10 FSU Seminoles canvas for a new little Nole!

A very important order from my husband! He wanted the Noles Spear on his hard hat so I painted one on both sides and put his old number on the back :)

8x8 flat canvas J for my other niece!

Hello Studio Blog.... It's been a while since I've posted anything! I finished all of my standing orders and they were pretty much repeats of some past work so I didn't take any new pictures. However, for the first time in a long time I was able to just "play paint" last night for myself and for fun. Here is an 11x14 stretched canvas I did for our front door. The green "Line with polka dots" is actually ribbon. I plan to embellish it a bit more tonight.

Below that one is a new idea I am playing around with. Since we live in a small home with no fireplace there isn't a good place to hang our Christmas Stockings.... hence this little diddy. Clearly it is unfinished, but I had to give you a sneak peak anyway. I think I will need to space the knobs out more on the next one. I also plan to do a glitter glaze on the word "Stockings". This is an 18x8 piece of MDF which I painted and my sweet hubby Jon drilled holes for my cute black knobs/stocking hangers!

Let me know what you think!!!

This has easily become a new favorite! A custom order from a client in Maryland she told me her idea and this is what came out... Too cute don't you think? If I was a new baby in the neighborhood I would want one of these :)

4 of the 31 orders for the month of August!

WOW! What a crazy month this has been.... 31 orders and technically the month isn't even over! To be perfectly honest I am a little overwhelmed. I never dreamed of having quite this much on my plate, but I am excited none the less. Finding time to fill all these orders is another thing entirely.

It has been a wonderful first year in the studio and I must say thank you to all who have placed orders and recommended me to friends and family. I am looking forward to see what this new year will bring..... more studio time please!
ashley bradberry
So, here are just a few of the orders I have been working on... nothing fancy, but still cute! I can't wait to share with you the other projects that are currently on my table. Hopefully I will have much more to share after the holiday weekend.

P.S. If you are thinking of placing an order please know that the current wait time is approximately 3-4 weeks due to the high volume of orders collected this month. I will post when this time frame changes :)

New Baby items...

Here are some new products I have been trying out.... Personalized Baby Blocks and pails. The very first child I ever baby-sat for is now having a baby of his own so I thought he and his wife (and baby Brody) deserved a special gift. Daddy Matt is a huge fisherman so naturally I chose a fishing theme. The blocks are 2x2 squares and painted on 4 sides with a letter in 4 different fonts (some capitals, some lower case), then on the two "ends" are small paintings of fishing gear... sailboat, hook, pole, bobber and waves! The bucket is an 8 quart galvanized steel bucket with painted fishing pole and "Brody's Bait". I apologize for not taking pictures before I packaged them :)

The idea seemed to be a success at the Baby Shower... what do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know!!!

Mother's Day Surprise

Here's a look at my mother's gift from this past Sunday. I think she was definitely surprised. It is a stretched 11x14 with painted "blue bird toile" and a poem by Robert Frost. Sorry for the poor photographs.... lighting was not on my side Sunday!

Shoes, monograms and foreign languages!



In Romanian this says, "Good morning, Good Day, Good Evening & Good Night"

I just love this chair! It is one of my favorites... and I just wanted to spice the pictures up just a bit. Prepare yourself for some unusual shots in the future! This is a 5x7.

Framed 5x7 - Monogram

A simple monogram.... I imagine a whole mantel fulled with letters - some painted, some bought, etc... This is framed 8x10

16x20 for the "B" collection

As you can see, I am back... I have acutally been back and backed up with orders! Thanks everyone for your support and your business. Please continue to check back at this web address for now... the new site is not quite ready!
