Announcement   I have added two new items to my shop. A watercolor that I call "House on the Prairie". It is matted and framed. I used the brusho water color crystals and used bleach to make the cabin more weathered and the grasses more lifelike. The colors of the brusho are very vibrant. This piece measures 36" x 24".

The second new item is a plaque announcing a baby's birth. The parents were on crew in college so the design was meaningful to them.

    I asked Abbe at ASRDecorations to make a custom order mailbox for my mom. She wanted irises painted into the design (not an easy flower to paint) and of course, I first approached Abbe about the specific request three and a half weeks before Christmas. What I got was hands down the best customer service and product that I've ever bought from Etsy. Abbe send me a sketched design first, then we discussed the specifics of the picture for a few days before she started to paint. I got a photo update when it was "almost" done to see if I was happy with it and wanted anything changed. I loved it, so the mailbox was finished and delivered to my house on December 14th. That's two weeks total for all of this interacting, painting, and shipping... during the holiday rush!!! I'm floored by how much I love the finished product.

About

I'm a painter

I started painting over twenty five years ago as a decorative painter, painting primarily on furniture and home furnishings and accessories. I learned many tole painting techniques such as gilding and free hand bronze. I opened my shop to sell some of my work but primarily to paint upon request and by order. My work in decorative arts translated easily to canvas and I began to paint florals and landscapes. More recently I have been working with watercolors and trying to master that medium which I love but find very difficult. Oils and acrylics are much more forgiving. Since then, I have been expanding my shop to include this work.

My daughter has been in several weddings as well as her own, and she asked me to draw her friend's wedding gown as a gift. This started me in another direction and I sketched her gown as well and will give that to her as a Christmas gift. Wedding gown sketches are also available through order.
