***GRAND OPENING***

March 13, 2009

It is with great pleasure that I announce to you, the grand opening of Vayda’s Pet Shop! (as if she wasn’t spoiled enough…now the rotten pooch has her own shop)  Anyhoo…I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out. Oh and to get things kicked off, I’m offering my you my “friends & family” rate on custom portraits!  It won’t last long, so be sure to commission yours quick!  I have so many more ideas for this shop…be sure to check back soon for updates.

Oh and super special thanks to Lucinda of Shaki Space Designs, for showing my pet portraits some love on her blog.

mural updates…

November 18, 2008

So here’s the unofficial post pics of the double door mural.  I usually ask my clients to “live with” a piece for a week, just to make sure that they are satisfied with the final work.  A mural can really make a big statement in a room, so it’s important that it’s just right.  Speaking of “just right” I’m on my way out this morning to add a few additional touches to ye old Pirates’ House…and take a peek at my new canvas over there…that’s right!  Another wall will fall victim to my brush in the coming months…I so cannot wait!  Ps…click here for a look at the “before canvas.”

11″x14″ Acrylic & Oil Wash on Patterned Paper and Illustration Board

Still working on Vayda’s card for 08…I’ve become totally OCD about color comps…and just can’t seem to make up my mind.  I’ll probably paint enough to have Christmas cards for the next 10 years!

Meet Dolce

November 15, 2008

One of the few Christmas puppy portraits I can show you in advance.  I just love love love this pup!  She is like an over-grown Vayda.  I met Dolce’s parents at the Gordonston Art Fair, and they’ve been wonderful supporters of my work ever since.  If you’re reading, many thanks, and it’s been great getting to know you and your fanciful four-pawed friends 🙂
