Come a Little Closer

More crabs!  Have I said how much I enjoy painting these???  I have a hard time naming my paintings sometimes, so I had my son help me again~ he's the creative "writer"!

I Won't Bite

I enjoyed painting these fun little crabs!  I finished a series of them last week for the private show this past weekend.  I'll post one each day.

The Claw

I've been working on some more crabs because they've been so popular!  I let some of the sketch show through on this one.  Love his claw!

Christmas and Holiday Orders!

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

Some of my recent artwork will be available to see in person (and purchase) through December at Stonehaven Jewelry Gallery in Cary, NC.

Blessings!  Christy

White Coneflowers

I took this photo when we were at Virginia Tech a few weeks ago for the game vs. ECU.  The flowers were in a garden area near the stadium.  Thought I'd try white this time!
