I had a lot of fun these last few months painting animals! Aggie is another Christmas present~ my friend Jodie had her painted as a gift for her brother. She has the sweetest face! I hope he enjoys it!~
More Christmas commissions! I really love all the colors in this one and how it turned out! My neighbor-friend had this done of her children to give to her parents for Christmas. I think they'll love it!

Here's another Christmas commission for our family friend, Olive. I painted her beach house in Kill Devil Hills, NC, for her to give to her son for Christmas. It's such a cute house and I had a lot of fun painting it! I hope he enjoys it!
This is a Christmas commission of a lighthouse in San Sebastian, Spain. It was a special location for a PartyLite Leader and her Teams got together and had this done for her for Christmas. I hope she enjoys it!
This is the first of a trio that I painted for my friend Beth. She wanted a special present for her husband and picked some of his favorite photos from a recent hike in the NC mountains. I hope he enjoys them!
Do you know someone who's hard to buy for? If you're looking for a special gift for someone, custom paintings can be very meaningful. The holiday season is quickly approaching and Christmas will be here before you know it! I'll be taking orders for custom paintings until October 25th, 2010 for Christmas delivery. I paint from photo's provided by my customers. Some of the subjects I've painted for other custom paintings include: children, grandchildren, beloved pets, house portraits, and special "places". If you're interested in having a custom painting done (or if you're interested in any of my other paintings) please e-mail me at email@example.com.
Some of my recent artwork will be available to see in person (and purchase) through December at Stonehaven Jewelry Gallery in Cary, NC.
I painted these on much larger canvas' than I have before. I was concerned about how they'd turn out, but I love them! It's a diptych (one photo split into two). They look great together, but can stand alone.
Another photo snatch from my friend Karen's Facebook photos! She has the BEST and I love turning them into paintings! Her daughter is an especially good subject~ :o) This is for an upcoming show in October- more info coming soon!
More Tigger! I painted this for my husband's birthday. We have a lamp post surrounded by peonies and liriope, and Tigger used to hide under all the foliage. He would always hang out with Keith when he worked in the yard.
If you're interested in purchasing any of my paintings, please send me an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. I can't reply to a comment unless you leave me your contact information (the comments are anonymous). Thanks!
This was a custom painting for the President of the Monmouth Beach Bath and Tennis Club, Art Lynch, in Monmouth Beach, NJ. He celebrated his 70th birthday this past weekend and this painting of his grandchildren was presented to him from the club.
Happy Birthday Art!

I painted this for my mother-in-law, Suzette. I really enjoy painting coneflowers and took this from a part of the photo I used for the last one. We celebrated her birthday this weekend in the Outer Banks, NC.
I'm really enjoying painting beach pictures this year, so I was very excited when I was contacted by Betsy for a "surprise" painting for her husband's birthday! I thought this captured a really sweet moment.
We had to say good-bye to our sweet kitty last month and my son wanted me to paint another picture of him for his room. He always napped in our front flower beds under the crepe myrtle tree, so I loved this picture with the sun catching just a bit of his face.
My husband took this photo last Thanksgiving of a man fishing on the Outer Banks Fishing Pier at milepost 18.5. This was a peaceful scene in comparison to all the damage up and down the beach from a really nasty Nor'Easter that had wrecked havoc earlier in the month.
