3 Mother's Day Gift Ideas from aSmaOriGinal

All mothers love flowers and heart shaped chocolate boxes but do you want to give your lovely mother a personalized gift made especially for her? I am aSma, an artist who would make her a custom portrait as a gift made from her photo. In my shop aSmaOriGinal on Etsy I offer many layouts and sizes. Here are three ideas for a personalized gift on mother's day:

You would get an individual custom portrait for your lovely mother painted with watercolors and glitter in the background...
 Individual Custom Portrait
...A painting on a 2.3 x 1.5in mini canvas using acrylics...
Or a personalized illustration with her name on a flower framed watercolor portrait illustration.
2. A Custom Portrait With Her Husband or Kids:
I traveled to many cities with my mother including Paris, Geneva and Cairo. This mother daughter travel custom portrait is great to symbolize all the trips you have made with your sweet mother.
A custom portrait with her other half. This is a collage and mixed-media portrait for a couple standing.
Or with her lovely kids... A watercolor illustration with the sentence: "You Are So Loved".
3. A Custom Family Portrait:
What can make her happy more than a custom family portrait for the whole family! You can add all the symbols of your family moments or passions in the illustration. Or you can present the places you have been to together in the background. Click Here for all the custom family portrait options I offer in my shop.
Still wondering what to ger your lovely mom on Mother's day? ;)

Custom Couple Portrait by aSmaOriGinal

The main theme for the custom portraits I make in my shop aSmaOriGinal is "Travel". In the portrait background, I illustrate the the cities the couple have been to. The last custom portrait I did was for a couple who wanted Philadelphia illustrated in the background.

I illustrate the couple or family using mixed media and paper collage for their clothes. I cut the clothes from fashion magazines and for me this is the best part in the process.

Abstract Paintings by Sara my 2 Years Old Daughter

Sara is my very active little sweet heart. She was born on December 2012 and she brought joy to my everyday ever since. Now that she passed two year old she found her passion in painting.

A close up.
Actually, I am finding a hard time painting when she is awake as she takes my place and start using my colors creating her own master piece.
Get up momy it is my turn!
One day when she will grow up she will give titles for her paintings. I will help her for now and title this one: "Pine Seed".
"Pine Seed"
I am hanging Sara's paintings on the wall in her room. Maybe one day we will hang them in an exhibition, who knows! :)
"Thoughts"
Now that Sara is asleep, I will try to finish as much work as I can. I have lots of orders! ;)
