Grandchildren - 11x14 custom Painting

Here is another 11x14 custom painting that I just finished. The client asked me to include a certain view of a lake and mountains, and also the grandparents' dog in the background... what a great Mothers' Day/ Fathers' Day gift!

It was so fun to paint these 7 beautiful kids!

Curvy Daffodil Fairy ACEOs

A while ago someone asked me to paint a few curvy fairies. Since I had some room in the margins of another painting, I decided to paint a little set of 4 Curvy Daffodil Fairy ACEOs.

I plan to list these on eBay some time next month...

Done! "Little Friends" 22x22 inches

I know it has been a while since I last posted... in part this is due to finishing my big gardening/landscaping project in the front yard. In part this is because I have been painting some custom pieces that I can't post online because they are gifts for people who also read my blog. In part this is because I've been working on some bigger "for fun" paintings! *Surprisingly* a 22x22 inch painting just takes longer than a 2.5x3.5 inch painting... who would have thought?! :o)

Custom 8x10 painting - Fort Huachuca

A friend of mine wanted to give some special military wives from the Fort Huachuca PWOC a special gift. She asked me to paint something that has to do with the beautiful landscape around the fort, as well as Ft Huachuca Bravo 4 company's rich historic heritage. Using several photos that she sent me for inspiration, I came up with the following painting:

Painting a landscape was previously uncharted ground for me, but I really enjoyed painting this piece! My friend purchased the original, and I made prints for her to give the ladies, as well. If you happen to be interested in a print, just let me know!
