Time to Relax
A fire in our fire pit, a glass of wine, a plate of cheese and crackers and the company of my husband are my rewards for a full days work.

Custom Orders for Christmas

Personalized gift ideas
One thing I love about the holiday season are the unique requests I receive from those who want to give a meaningful keepsake gift.  Below are two recently created custom orders.

A simple rendition of a house sketched and painted with acrylic paints on a small canvas for a new home owner who loves purple and plans on painting the shutters and doors in her color of choice.   This was a custom request from a buyer who wanted a house portrait, rendered in my whimsical style, on a tiny/small canvas as a gift for a good friend. 

This ornament was created for my customer's friend who had published her first book this past year.  The ornament features the cover of her book, "Who's faster?" with the authors name and 2012 written on the back.  A fun keepsake gift from a very proud friend.
