Have you heard that one before? Being an artist, at times potential customers/clients who want a custom painting will say this. Well…….I actually could charge more than what I am currently!
People don’t realize how much time goes into a painting. It’s not like I bang it out in 2 hours. I spend a few week to a month on a custom piece. And at times could be even more time. So that 400.00 order may take me 8 to 12 hours to do. So when you break it down per hour, it’s not that much! That 150.00 piece could take me the same amount of time as a more pricey larger piece………….
Your getting something that is custom. Made just for you. One of a kind piece. I think the value is for sure in that!!!
Happy Holidays Everyone! Christmas is next week already! Whoa!!! Time flew by! It’s been quite a busy year for me with custom pet portrait orders! I am so very thankful for all the work since I LOVE to paint beautiful animals! Looking forward to 2020 to see what it will bring for me in the creative department!
Available now are Gift Cards for a custom pet portrait! You can give the gift money towards a painting for that special someone! Here is the link!
HAVE A FANTASTIC HOLIDAY SEASON EVERYONE!!!
Can’t believe that I have been that prolific in the last 4 years and have created 200 painting!! (Could be a few more that I have done and have forgotten about but that is OK!)
My 200th piece is of our monster of a doggo named Wilma! She is a pistol and deserves to be on a big canvas! 36×48
I had allot of fun painting her!
Wilma and her BFF Clem Fandango approve the art! Next I will have to paint up a big one of Clem!

I am not going to be in the Encore Open Studios this weekend!!

Wow today is one of those Mondays where I just can’t seem to get motivated to be creative. Been just computing and posting today. After a weekend of rain and working around the house, I need to get my artistic drive back! It will come back! I am sure of it!!
I have one more custom project to start up and then back to playing around with some mixing up fabrics to make some super cool one of a kind bags. Plus got to get on those sewing patterns! Need to keep plugging away on those. September is going to show up fast when the sewing expo’s are coming up!
