stjudesquareartworks' Shop Announcement

Welcome to St.Jude Square Artworks! Commission sketches and paintings by Virginia artist Ellen Commerce. I create art based on your own beloved photos (old or new). I work in a variety of media, including pencil, acrylic and watercolor paints, and pastels. Whether you wish to celebrate your favorite pets, people, or places, I would love to work with you and we can make something beautiful! The process is simple. You upload your photo, and we begin a conversation about your vision, here on Etsy. You purchase the item and I start sketching. When you are satisfied with the result, I mail it to you. It usually takes at least a couple of weeks--in rare cases (or during busy seasons), a month, so if you are thinking about Christmas gifts, please order now!

I also offer affordable and fun hand painted tiles--my original "Square Artworks". The tile paintings are sealed and can be gently cleaned with a water-moistened cloth, for use in kitchen, bath or out-of-doors.

It is such a privilege as an artist to be immersed in the beauty the Lord has created "This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it."
