Current Watercolor Commissions

 Andrew, Luke, and Scott

 Sweet little Rowan

I am working on these two paintings today.  It's been a nice relaxing Christmas Eve morning.  I'm hoping to have Rowan done today, and make great progress on Andrew, Luke, and Scott.  Happy Christmas Eve friends.

I just finished this portrait of Olivia.  This was a real quick painting that I did for fun.  I just really wanted to play with deeper colors in the face.  I am currently working on three commissioned portraits.  One of three young men, and two of two darling little boys.  I will post something soon on those.

I Painted this little snowman this evening.  I was inspired to paint a cute little snowman for my Aunt, who has always been in love with snowmen.  I put her initials at the bottom of his scarf for her.  I so enjoyed painting this at my kitchen table with four little girls surrounding me with excitement!  It was so cute.  There is nothing more fun than doing what I love with a handful of little eager artists looking to me for help and inspiration.  Just too cool.

Lonesome Dove Ranch

This is a river scene that I did a few years back.  I snapped a picture below the bridge that lead to my Grandparent's ranch in Alpine, Wyoming.  It was so gorgeous.  The land was covered with grassy hills and quaking aspens.  My Grandfather now resides in Sedona, Arizona, and I am going to do some paintings of his new surroundings. 


I did this portrait of my sister Christina when I was in high school.  So it is not a new painting, just one off of my mom's wall.  As you can see, she had really beautiful big brown eyes.  She still does and she now has a sweet little girl (my niece) with the same big brown eyes.  It's pretty cool how our children pick up some of our characteristics.  Hope you enjoy.
