Art At Work!

Recently, Anne Mathisen ("Aunt Anne") has been putting me to work. She has commissioned me to do projects that she will use for her work in the insurance business. First, she commissioned me to do a welcome sign for her first time home owners event. Second, she asked that I'd make a sign to let customers know when she'd be back in the office. We did the top part of the sign saying, "I'll give you the best insurance rate ever!... When I return:" and the bottom part of the sign is chalk board paint, so she can write with chalk when she will return. Two unique and fun projects Aunt Anne! Thanks for including my art at your work! :)

I am so Excited to Announce My First Sale From the eGallery!!!!!

I am so happy to announce my first sale from my little "eGallery" at . In the past I have made only commissioned painting's. Commissioned painting's, donations and gifts are very exciting and I always appreciate the support... However, it is the best feeling to paint simply because you were feeling inspired. To paint without a deadline or real purpose other then... I just felt like "coloring", is a wonderful feeling.

 I was so excited to recieve a message from a friend from grade school, Megan Marie Andrews, about her interest in one of my painting's!  I got the idea for this painting from a life model drawing I did my junior year in college. I literally drew hundreds of drawings of this particular model, but this drawing was one of my favorites. I am so happy to know that it stuck out to someone else as well.

Thank you Megan for your support and encouragement, it means so much to me! I hope that you enjoy your painting!
