Painting: Caleb

caleb-smI don’t even know what to say about this painting except that it was a deeply emotional and overwhelming painting to do.  It was difficult at times, but just seemed to flow at other times.  This bit of sky is possibly my favorite part of the painting.

DSC_0130This was a birthday present for a mother, grieving the loss of her young son.  The only consolation in a situation like this is to know that he is in a better place and with our Savior and others who have gone before.

Painting: Portraits

Edit: I forgot to mention that I am giving away a painting on Facebook.  You have to be on the “likes” list to win.  Every 100 likes, I’m giving away a painting.  We just hit 200 and I’m drawing the name at 11:30 PST (2 hours from now).  Get on the list to be eligible to win! 🙂

I painted several commissioned pet portraits over the past few weeks, which were given as special Christmas gifts.

I also did a couple of doggie portraits for some friends’ Christmas gifts:

This one was very special because my friend’s dog, Bailey, passed away a few months ago.  She was such a great companion.

I also did a few paintings to sell at a gallery in Salt Lake City, UT.  The Starbucks, right across the street of the gallery, closed not long ago, to the dismay of many of the gallery clients.  So, I am doing a series of Starbucks paintings that will only be available at the 15th Street Gallery in Salt Lake City.  If you’re in the area- go check them out.  (It may be a week or two before they are hung and available)

I didn’t get pictures of all of them… and the pictures that I did get were from my cell phone, so not the best quality.

Painting: Landscape with Canoes

After a long painting hiatus, I pulled out my brushes and did a little number.  It started out as just a quick thing to put in a frame in order to fill a space on a wall.  But then I decided to actually paint- like, take the time and try to make something beautiful.
