Big projects finally finished!

I have been working on two wedding portraits. One, the Jacobs', was not too difficult because the references I had were good pictures to begin with. The other one, the Buckner portrait, was a challenge. The original wedding photo was poorly lit and damaged. So, I used a couple of different pictures of Bobbie in order to complete the painting. I guess back in the 1930's wedding photography was not what it is today! I am grateful, however, that someone (we don't know who) thought to take a snapshot of them at all! It's wonderful to think of them at this young age when they started a family. I hope the many family members that are fortunate enough to claim a branch on their family trees, will love these paintings.

Xango recently approached me about painting one of their glass juice bottles. I had never done anything like that before, but thought it might be fun. I painted the bottle and they auctioned it off yesterday at their national conference. It sold for $1,600 and all the proceeds will go to charity! Yay!

I am happy to find a place online to show some of the work I do. I must admit that I am not great with blogs, but I am trying my best to figure this out.

The pieces on this site are oil on canvas or oil on board. I only use high quality products to make paintings that will last. I have originals, giclees (canvas prints) and I also do commissions. If you see something you like, have questions or commission projects in mind, please contact me by leaving me a message on this blog.
