(please note returning customer-contact me for a reduction in cost) If you love color and you'll discover every art piece is fervently painted with color along with my hope to tell a story, one you may have already heard or one yet to be told....each painting holds their own emotional setting and tone. . .A one-of-a-kind Original Painting, by DanaC. It is a joy working on a piece until I have reached a point I can say yes, this will represent me, my love for art and I would be proud to have it displayed on someone’s wall. Each piece unique & painted with the finest paint along with many layers of it.

All art is an original oil, acrylic and/or watercolor paintings or a combination.

Most are gallery wrapped-stretched canvas with all the edges painted so you can hang them with assurance, with or without a frame. There are a few on canvas boards, or specially paper but each will tell you in the discription section.

My paintings are painted to give joy, color and fun, also provoke wonderful emotions.

Each painting is created as if they were going to hang in my home, as many do.....I hope they will bring the new owner countless days of pleasure.

Please note that the colors may vary depending on your monitor, but I do enjoy painting with lots of colors.

All paintings will be wrapped and packaged with care and shipped promptly.

Aspin Road is my very favorite purchase from Etsy - you would not believe how much I love this beauty and so does everyone else who sees it. Absolutely breath taking! Communication with DanaC has been outstanding as well. I plan on taking a picture of it once it's framed and I hope I can upload it for all to see. DanaC told me that she paints from her heart and it's so obvious in this picture - I couldn't be happier! Thank you so much DanaC, this is a treasure that I'll enjoy for the rest of my life. I LOVE IT!!!!!!

“Oh my goodness, I love the three paintings I have of artist, Dana Critchlow!
They are an explosion of color, rich texture and strong emotion!
I will collect more of her paintings as they bring us all great joy to view them everyday!!”

"I personally own a painting by Dana C. from the "bed series," my husband and I hung it in our bedroom and everytime I look at it, it brings a smile to my face! I can't help but get wrapped up in all the movement in the painting and the relaxing element the painting adds to our bedroom! In fact, my favorite wall hanging in our bedroom is that piece!"

"Life in the metropolitan is busy and hectic with numerous pressures. The constant demands drive me to seek an escape in order to maintain balance and sanity. Dana's relaxing painting helps bring some of that peace to our home. One of my favorite activities is to grab a good book and get lost in my imagination. Dana's peice in our home instantly transports me to that place of soothing feelings and I can gape at her creation for hours as my mind experiences day-dreaming, relaxation, and peacefulness -- the antithesis to a crazed, bustling world. If you need some balance in your life, find an open spot on your wall, purchase one of Dana's creations and take a deep breath of her creativity." Daniel Hallak

‘I personally own three pieces of Dana’s work and find each to have a unique flavor all their own. Art is very personal and speaks volumes to each of us in a different manner. What I find so powerful about Dana’s work is her diversity and power that each piece has whether it is thru a landscape or color or family life. She captures the true essence and her natural talent comes from an inner strength that can only be a gift from some one that is touched by God. It is a blessing to have such a gift and have the ability to put that on a canvas. To each of us her art will speak volumes and fill us with love. So, don’t wait bless your surroundings with a beautiful piece of her art and enjoy the beauty of it all’.

Our large oil by Dana lights up the whole room ~
we use it as a focal point, as you are drawn to
it immediatly.

There is a warmth to Dana's work that is hard to
explain ~ but it reflects the artist herself.

Somehow you feel there is a story in each of her
paintings, and with this comes a peace.

Our vibrant piece is one of a treed landscape with
colors & textures that explode, yet sooth.

When we entered the art show gallery it called to us - as one
will call to you !

Cheers to all,
Cass & Krish Moodley
