I have done hundreds of on-the-spot portraits and commissioned paintings of places for many years. It is a wonderful thing to create art that will become an heirloom for generations.

The example shown above was a commission of a home in Ontario, Canada. The home belongs to the parents of the client. She and her siblings grew up in this sweet home and this was a Christmas gift to her parents. See the nice feedback she left for me:

"Was looking to have my parents family home painted & met a lovely artist and person in the process. In honesty I was hesitant to "hire" someone to do this, I wanted the love & warmth of our home to shine through, and cost was also a consideration; coming from a large family it's hard on the purse during the holidays. I can honestly say I'm 100% satisfied. It felt as though this sweet Etsy member cared enough to work as a team on it (not all feel so compelled & can do it in such a professional manner). We stayed in contact the entire time and when it arrived (after a small hassle through the postal system (of course no ones fault, except choosing to mail parcels during such a busy time), we were moved to tears. This work of art is not just a painting, but a family heirloom that will be loved and passed on. I hope whoever may read this will be as fortunate to work with this true artist. Thank you Patricia, It's been an honor. "

This listing is for an impressionist-style pastel painting on acid-free French-made Canson pastel paper. The size of the art is roughly 11" x 14" - Ready-made mats are available at most craft stores with openings in this size and will then fit into a 16" x 20" ready-made frame.

My style is not tight nor photographic as you can see by the example shown. I love to use color and catch the spirit, warmth and light of the location in a painterly manner that is a lasting piece of art.

Pastel is a most unique medium used by famous artists for centuries. Leonardo Da Vinci, Edgar Degas, William Merritt Chase, & Mary Cassatt to name only a few. There are also amazing contemporary artists now known for their beautiful works in pastel. There are pastel paintings that are over 200 years old and are as bright & fresh as they were when painted! Pastel catches the light as no other medium!

Upon payment, the procedure is to send me photographs either by email files or snail mail. I will communicate regarding details that you wish included such as season of the year, weather, etc. that may not be readily visible in the photos. It is best to have more than one photo to work from if possible.

Instructions on framing your art are included. Please allow 3 - 4 weeks for delivery after I have received your photos. Contact me with any questions you may have. Thank you for stopping by!
