4D Sonogram to Canvas

I'm celebrating with my friend on the birth of her first grandchild. Her idea for this portrait is totally fantastic. (She always has the best ideas!) So we came up with this size, 6"x6"x1.5", a small gallery wrap canvas painted in sepia tones. She is planning to gift...

Make Me a Prophetic Painting

Make Me a Prophetic Painting

So how does that happen? A commissioned prophetic painting? Here's what I got from the client: babies, anchors and the color navy. I told this to an artist friend and she just blurted out a big laugh. HaHa! It's all in the process of problem solving and fluid artful...

Pearls Revisited

Pearls Revisited

I came across this commission piece. I never met the woman who commissioned this in person. She saw my art, mostly portraits, in a coffee shop in downtown Winston Salem. She called and sent photos and I painted. I also offered a frame option, which I often do. I was...
