A Little Story told with a custom painting
Girl with wolves
Girl with Wolves (right) came from a story I had in my head about a girl that befriended two white wolves in the high desert. She went out everyday hiking in the desert and the wolves eventually befriended her and started following along with her.
One day, tragedy struck and the girl and wolves were swept away in a violent dust storm.
To this day, they still roam the high desert as ghosts!

TELL YOUR OWN STORY WITH A CUSTOM PAINTING
Do you have a story that you want to express in a custom painting? Create a book cover for the story in your mind.
A UNIQUE CONVERSATION PIECE
Your painting will be like no other you can purchase from any artist. It will tell your story and be painted in my style. It will come from your ideas, but brought to reality by my unique creative flair. How great would it be when someone tells you that they like the artwork to be able to tell them the story behind it?
If you are familiar with my work, then you know my style is something I call Abstract Realism. I paint realistic-like subjects and blend them into abstract backgrounds. Sometimes the backgrounds blend into the subject itself. Sometimes the background resembles a landscape and sometimes, it is pure abstract.
I also like color! I use color palettes that work together and look good in the place where my art hangs, but one thing in common my pieces have is color!
I paint in acrylic (sometimes with acrylic ink and oil pastel) on gallery wrap canvas (which requires no frame to be hung and comes with wire hanger hardware installed). Sometimes i paint the edges of the canvas in a solid color (like a frame) and other times the painting wraps around the edges of the canvas.
You don't have to have a story to have a unique custom painting made for you.
Have a favorite landscape photograph? I can create a custom painting of it in an abstract style or even combination of realistic and abstract.
Have a a photograph of someone, a pet, or perhaps a photograph of wildlife that you took? Portraits are stunning painted in the abstract realism style.
Anything you can think up is doable!
Fill out the Consultation Request form and include a brief description of your idea. I will set up a meeting to discuss your idea and answer any questions you may have.
We will meet online. You will provide references photos you may have and we will come up with a plan based on your idea or story, color palette, & timeframe. If you decide to move forward, you will select a size for the painting and pay 50% of the total cost for the custom painting.
I begin work on your custom painting. There will be several work-in-progress reviews so you can see how things are going and perhaps make minor adjustments.
We have a final review and you decide where you want the signature to be on the painting (front, back, side, dated or not). I will sign it an, varnish the painting, and install hanging hardware.
You will pay for the balance owed on the custom painting and shipping charges.
I will package up and ship the painting to you and provide you with the tracking number.
I will also include care instructions and other tips and a little special something.
Prices are based on a basic landscape or abstract painting and includes all consultations during the process. There will be an additional cost of $50 for each realistic subject (e.g., pet/animal, person, non-nature object such as a car or house). Edges come painted in a solid color of your choice. There is an addition cost of $50 for mirrored edges (i.e., the painting image wraps around the edge of the canvas). Shipping is not included; however, insurance on the shipment is included.
