Mini paintings are great gifts for anytime!

Mini paintings make fantastic gifts. A little touch of original art that is reasonably priced and very transportable makes a unique statement that will add to the personal touches of someone’s home or office. Send me a favorite photograph of a flower, tree or landscape and I will create something just for you. At this point, I could not guarantee it would be ready before Christmas, but think about birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, or the best of all:  a gift for no apparent reason.

Indiana Interchurch Center Gallery exhibition: Home

I am SO excited.  I found out today that this painting has been accepted for the exhibit of women’s art called “Home.”  The cherry on top was the email I got today from Frank Relle, of Frank Relle Photography, who told me he loves the painting that was inspired by one of his photographs.

Night Cypress

I had put this aside for a while because I wasn’t sure what to do next. Recently I looked again at the photograph by New Orleans photographer Frank Relle and was inspired – as I always am when I see his work. So, I just decided the best thing to do would be to get some water, clean up my studio and just jump in. This is what I have so far. I’m getting excited about finishing it.  This has been a big challenge.
