The bride’s sister commissioned me to capture that quiet moment before the the guests arrived and the festivities began.  I can remember peeking out of the window at my own wedding to see everything set up, and Aunt Pam tossing flowers down the aisle like a little school girl.  That peaceful moment was so full of anticipation.

Ahhh…felt so good to have my hands in paint for a few days…now back to ink work.

If you’d like your own custom pet portrait, now would be a good time to book before the holiday madness ensues.  (Seriously, where has this year gone?!)

I fought this painting until the bitter end, but the look on my husband’s face said it all.  Thankfully, my second attempt is proving fruitful.

Custom Art for Christmas

October 18, 2010

If you’ve been pondering that portrait of Fido or a sketch of your childhood home, now is the time to get on the list.  My schedule fills fast this time of year, and I’ve got some serious holiday travel lined up.  Only 68 days left until Christmas! Eeeeeek!

No house is too big or too small and I’m a sucker for just about any furry baby!  All I need are some awesome photos to work from, and a little bit of time.  I can also make archival prints of the original work  so that other friends and family members can have a little memento too!

Most importantly, I want to remind you all to consider buying handmade this year and supporting your local art community.  Aside from bringing home the most unique gifts, you’ll also be keeping people like myself from having to get a “real” job…(I hear there’s not many of those anyway)…so keep it quirky, and  buy handmade!
