The following pieces are available for purchase directly from the artist. (That’s me, but saying, “the artist” sounds classier.) Follow me on Facebook or Instagram to find out where and when I’ll be at art fairs and exhibitions. I’d love to meet you.
- Prices quoted include shipping to the 48 contiguous United States or D.C.
- If you live in Indiana, yes, I have to collect sales tax. However, shipping costs me less, so you get a discount that effectively cancels out the sales tax I have to collect, and you pay the same total as out-of-state customers.
- A printed receipt will be included in your package, along with a certificate of authenticity and a thank-you note. I am very grateful for everyone who purchases my art and enables me to keep doing what I love.
- If you live in the Michiana area, and I can deliver it in person, you get a discount on larger pieces — contact me at email@example.com for more information. That also ensures that your artwork will definitely arrive it good condition.
- For shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, or Canada, or if you have questions about anything else, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the formality of a formal boardroom portrait… but it’s a duck. This guy visited our backyard bird feeder, and I thought he was terribly handsome. There is something about ducks that makes me smile.

Cradle in the Azaleas
These baby robins were born in my grandmother’s azalea bush. The cousins and I were able to watch them grow up and fledge through the porch screen. The little cousins were fascinated; I was inspired to paint.

I got to pet this silky little baby at the Elkhart County 4-H fair a few years ago. He was very sweet… not like the adult rabbit whose cage had a hand-scrawled sign reading, “Keep fingers away from cage. I BITE.”

My nephew and his bride asked me to photograph their wedding, and I captured a candid snapshot of this tired young lady after the reception. Everything about the photo — her expression, her perfect pose, the soft back-light — said “Paint this!” The shirred chiffon of her dress looked like brush strokes already, so that part was especially fun to render in paint.
The Bridesmaid in Pink
Acrylic on stretched canvas. Canvas is 28 x 22 inches. Unframed. Completed 2018.
A folk art style feathered friend painted from childhood memories. Flocks of little black and white birds like this one used to visit our bird feeder during the winters when I was a kid.
(Those diagonal lines in the photo showing the frame are just a problem with the photo editing that I couldn’t figure out — no actual ridges in the paint.)
