I first saw what Michelle Armas called "painterly votives" when I was searching for Wedding favors.
I found them so beautiful but I never did get around to making any YET.
If you don't have a lot of money and you have a little paint and some clear votive holders they would make a great Christmas gift.
If you have money you can buy an original painting by Michelle Armas.
Or a print... I love the flow and color in her art I find it calming.
