Watercolor on Paper
one on high quality paper. Size is determined by image size. Painting will be done on larger sized paper to allow for matting or you can have the painting cropped to fit your frame.
Watercolor on Canvas
NEW canvas coated for watercolor painting. Advantages are – you do not need to frame as the finished painting is covered with a protective UV clear coat, sides of canvas are painted allowing for direct hanging on wall.
Oil on Canvas
traditional oil on canvas. Thick, earthy colors. Allow additional time for painting, dry time & delivery. These take much longer to paint & dry. Depending on the subject it may be approx. 6-8 weeks to finish. Please contact me and we can discuss your portrait!
Other sizes are available, just ask! Subjects include: Abstract, Floral, Trees, Birds, and more! If you see something in my gallery that you like, I can create something similar! Contact me for pricing. Portrait Pricing is for one subject / head and shoulders – additional subjects, full figures, lots of hair or objects will add to the cost starting at $25.00. A quote will be sent to you for approval.

I can combine a mixture of photos into one…Can’t get your Puppy and your Child to sit perfectly still to have their picture taken? Would you like a collage…say a Head Shot Portrait with a Full Body Shot and you pups favorite toys all in one image? Done! Have tons of photos of your kids & want Sally from picture 1 and Joey from picture 2? No problem! Send in as many pics as you want. Tell me about them. Which do you like the best. Which shows the best expression. Why is your thumb in the picture?
will be determined by the artist. In some cases a background is not necessary (depending on the subject)…if a desired color or background element is desired, please let me know! A more complex background, like a landscape, may add to the price. This will be determined before the painting is started.
Simply send a nice quality digital picture to work from. I can work from multiple images, but prefer one good picture to use as the master and additional pictures that may show color, expression, or other elements.
Once the artwork is finished, a full color image will be emailed for your approval. I do not charge for changes, but note…watercolor is nearly impossible to change once it is down. I can manipulate it to a degree, but major changes usually require a complete redo (but, this has not happened to me yet…knock on wood).
is available. Fees for shipping, cost of frame and labor will be charged. I can give you some suggestions on frame style/matting, etc. I normally suggest a simple White Archival Matte with a Nice Black or Natural Wooden Frame.
is included in pricing for US Domestic Packages – unframed only. Ship via USPS Priority Mail, UPS Ground or FedEX Home Delivery, depending on size of package. International, please contact me for pricing.
I also paint landscapes, buildings, horses, birds, fish – you name it! Just ask if you have a certain project that you would like painted!
