Holiday Card for Southern Bride Magazine

Holiday Card for Southern Bride Magazine art
Gayle Wheatley, digital

I had the opportunity to create this festive card for Southern Bride magazine this season. I had been playing around with sketches for my own holiday card featuring a girl in a candy cane dreamland, and thought this wonderland would be beautiful with a happy bride in her gown and veil, decked out in diamonds, with diamond snow drops falling all around her. This is how it all turned out!

Happy Holidays!!

Happy Holidays!! art
Wishing everyone a fun-filled holiday and a totally fabulous 2009!

I’ve been meaning to splinter gaylewheatley.com into a couple sites all year, and I finally did it! There were just too many peices of work together under one roof! Now my paintings and illustrations are located on one site and all my design on another:

Yes We Did!

Today is a beautiful day, and the sun is back after such a long night.
We did it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [gasp!]
And with that, we are a new America. Everything has changed. BARACK OBAMA is the president elect and for the first time ever we have a minority in the highest office! This is so incredible and for those of us with immigrant roots and minority backgrounds, it’s truly inspirational!! I am so happy and so excited for the great things to come!
