First, the Shop! is back up and running. Praise Jesus! Now back to business…
I can’t even begin to count the amount of emails I’ve received over the past year asking me to create a canvas with the lyrics to the old hymn Come Thou Fount. You guys LOVE it! And so do I. I grew up hearing this song in church, and fell back in love with it when my friend Jes sang it at Steve & Cait’s wedding. It’s such a beautiful song, and there is something so familiar and yet still so fresh about it.
For those of you who haven’t heard this song, I enlisted the vocal stylings of my handsome hubby and my lovely sister-in-law Breeze (when Breeze isn’t serenading us, she is also keeping track of all your orders at the shop!). So here is a little Come Thou Fount for you. In my Mother-in-law’s living room, after decorating the tree. I did not edit this video, so be patient – a song is coming, I promise.
Beautiful, no? (Seriously, that’s like the 3rd time they’d sung that song… ever). There are so many parts of this song worth illustrating, so there could very possibly be more canvases to come, but for now I figured I’d just start here.
I am really happy with the way it turned out – all swoopy and relaxed, but still pretty. I hope you guys love it as much as I loved creating it. It would be an amazing Christmas gift to yourself or someone you love. The canvases are large, 24 x 30 inch pieces. They’re gallery wrapped and really create a nice presence in the room – a true piece of art. Click here to check it out! (Oh, it’s also available as a print, too!) xo, L
p.s. so thrilled to have this piece featured on The Nesting Place today!
