Commissions »

When people like a painting of mine that has sold, I suggest that I could do another version for them.  Often times, people question if that would compromise my artistic integrity.  No way!  Think of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers.  There are seven versions of that painting.  Redoing one of my own pieces gives me a chance to re-think it, correct what I did like the first time, and ultimately learn from the experience.  I really enjoy it!  The second versions never look exactly the same, of course, but ultimately turn out really well.

Below I’ve posted some of the commissions I’ve done in the last year.  As you can see, some have significant changes -planned out with the buyers before beginning.  Some are a completely different size, and some are very similar to the original.

If you ever consider having me do a commission, keep in mind that I will continue to work on the piece until my clients are happy!  I only want people own a piece of my work if every time they walk by it, they’re thrilled to own it.  Commissions are an additional 20% to my normal prices, give or take in particular situations.

Searching for Spring »

Lately, I can’t help but paint plants, birds and anything that suggests spring. This 40 degree weather is NOT helping! Here is a set of three botanical paintings.

Melting Ponds »

The last week I’ve been enamored with the melting ponds at the park where I walk my dog everyday. The reflection of the leafless plants and trees against the half-water, half-ice is really beautiful. The colors have been amazing as well, drastically changing with the light.

Here are two pieces I’ve been working on that are inspired by these melting ponds.
