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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com.
PLEASE NOTE: Prices do not shipping charges which will be billed separately. For pieces to be shipped to Indiana addresses or delivered in person in Indiana, I must also collect 7% Indiana sales tax — please edit the payment amount when paying to include the sales tax. Full shopping cart functionality will be available as soon as I’ve sold another painting or two. Until then, I thank you for your patience.
If you prefer, you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a purchase or to inquire about seeing a piece in person. Click here for my guarantee and return policy.
This one was fun to paint! I used brushes, but also poured paint, and I used a rubber stamp to apply paint. The lines which appear orange in the photograph are actually metallic copper, and the white stamped images are metallic silver paint. Three companion pieces are in the works, to be titled “orchard,” “field,” and “garden.” Purchase this piece, and you get first chance to purchase the companion pieces when they are completed.

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.

County Fair Baby
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.”
2016; watercolor on paper; about 4″ x 6″, mat opening about 3 3/4″ x 5 3/4 “; frame is 10 1/8″ x 12 5/8” overall; $44
County Fair Baby (framed)
Watercolor on paper. The painted image is about 4 x 6 inches; the mat and glass are 8 x 10 inches; the mat opening is about 3 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches. The outside dimensions of the MDF frame are 10 1/8 x 12 5/8 inches.
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.
You probably noticed that the color is different in the two photos. This painting appears different in different light — warmer in incandescent, cooler in fluorescent, and daylight brings out all of the colors.
Bridesmaid In Pink
Acrylic on stretched canvas. 28 x 22 inches. Sealed with a satin finish permanent acrylic varnish. (The frame shown above is available at no extra charge, but be advised it sustained some minor damage to the underside of the bottom corners while in transit to a juried show.)
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.)
Snow Bird (framed)
Acrylic on canvas mounted to wood panel. 9 x 12 inches. Black painted solid wood frame with sawtooth hanger is 13 1/2 x 16 1/2 inches.
