Catching you up!

Goodness- I'm embarrassed that it's been so long since I updated this blog! I'll try to catch you up, but a few  recently completed projects won't be posted until after they have been given as gifts!

These two paintings (2 paintings, same dog) were commissioned by a sweet lady from Camden, SC for her daughter as surprise gifts. It's clear from a brief conversation how much this puppy means to them!

 Together, but I forgot to rotate it- please forgive.

 The pair of paintings. Both 11x14" acrylic on canvas. June 2012.

Unfortunately (I could kick myself for this) I didn't get a final picture of these 5 dachshunds. What was I thinking?!?! You can see the what it looked like in progress. 16x20" acrylic on canvas. April 2012.

More dogs! I know it's crazy- I don't know how this happened! Below is a picture my sister-in-law gave as a gift. 8x10" or 11x14" (can't remember) acrylic on canvas. March 2012.

This is the photograph (I've gridded it to draw):

This is the finished painting:

Sweet Caroline! She loved the painting of the Provision Company, and wanted something similar in style, but characteristically Charleston. Here is a painting of Shem Creek, from sketch to finish. 18x24" Acrylic on wooden panel. SO MUCH FUN! This one's headed to Augusta, GA in a great-looking rustic wooden frame! May 2012.

The blue heron: 36x48" acrylic on canvas. This is a big one! Felt so honored that a sweet classmate of mine and her husband commissioned me for a piece for their new home! With some color-planning, they cut me loose. You can see the course the painting took in the series of photos below. I think everyone was happy! I loved painting the feathers! April 2012.

Thanks for following. More to come. If you've been thinking about having something painted, please let me know- now is a great time! I have plenty of time and a new studio, in which I LOVE spending time.
