CELEBRATING GOD'S CREATION THROUGH ORIGINAL WORKS.
This is an older painting. I did it alla prima, or all at once, it is of Lake Okeechobee. I truly love the texture and color that is unique to knife paintings. Some of my students are doing palette knife beach scenes right now, so I wanted to post this one in response to what we are doing in class. Ready to frame

This drawing won Best of Show in my second year in college. I just made it available in print. It is made up of hundreds of tiny dots. Shadows are created by placing the dots closer and overlapping them at times. Highlights are made by scattering the dots farther apart. Very intricate and detailed work.
I did this a few years ago, just made it available in print. It combines many thoughts and memories from many places. Poured myself into it for a few months. Created entirely from memory! (Usually use some reference photos.) Love the way it came together.
Here are some examples of commissioned paintings. I can take your photos and use colors of your choice for the background and create a custom painting in a size you would like! I can also use one of my paintings to get started and make changes to create your own original!
If you are considering having one made for a unique gift for Christmas, then now is the time!
Choose a painting you like, find two or three photos, and start early to give me a few months to create it (Early orders receive a 25% discount on my regular prices)! My prices are by size. I take half down and half on completion. (Orders taken in October no longer qualify for the discount.) I do angels, children with their pets, pets portraits, livestock, wildlife, homesteads, favorite landscapes, gardens, etc . . . I work with you through the stages of the painting in progress so changes and corrections can be made early.
Got to do the last plein air (out doors on location) paint-out with Lori McNamara until fall. It was muggy and hot and very hard to get inspired at first. But once I got going I really enjoyed it. This is at the Oxbow Eco-center in Fort Pierce. Had a little girl watch off and on, and then she got so close I wanted to give her the brush! She loved it and told me what a good job I was doing. Too cute! Added the cardinal (which I saw flying around), and the butterflies (which were not flying around) after I got home. I couldn't paint the butterfly garden and not add butterflies!
This painting is simple, but effective. I captured the feeling I was after: cooler weather and the fleeting moment of birds rushing off out of sight. I love working in this impressionistic style too. This is an older painting that I have just made available in print.
This one is actually titled "Paines Prairie" but I changed the title on the prints, which I thought was funny (instead of prairie dogs).
This painting has a lot more than meets the eye because of the memories that go with it.
I was at a Plein Air (out doors) workshop in Gainesville, Florida and these deer jumped out at different sides of the field. They were very fast! I got a few good pictures and add-libbed the rest after I got home to work to my warm studio. There was ice and frost on the palm trees that morning, and it only warmed up to about 40 degrees through the day! My little windbreaker jacket was not near enough to keep the cold wind out, but I stuck with it.
Pretty much made this painting up. Started with a cool photo of the tree laying down, which I had painted once before in its original setting. I changed the sky from gray to sunset, and added the tall pines from other photos of the area. I saw tons of sandhill cranes gathering in a pasture and loved the idea of putting them in this painting, so I added the water and the cranes for more interest.
Actually finished this one in December but haven't had a chance to get prints available until now. Had an open house for the new location of Fawn's Studio and Gallery, and I had an art show to get ready for. I really need to slow down!
