Wedding Oil Painting Portrait

Recently I attended a beautiful wedding of a friend of mine.  I was asked by someone if I do oil portraits of wedding couples. I told her yes, and I gave her my card with a link to my web site with some examples of wedding portraits I was commissioned to paint.  The holidays are a special time for weddings.  Actually my parents were married on Christmas day many years ago.  That day was always a double celebration! If you are having a holiday wedding or know of someone who is, feel free to contact me for information on a portrait commission.  An oil portrait is a wonderful treasure that can be passed down from generation to generation! 

Procedure for commissions out of the Indianapolis area
I have safely shipped paintings all across the U.S. and abroad.  You simply e-mail me a good clear photo.  After a 50% deposit is paid, I will start on your portrait and give you updates by e-mail on the progression of the portrait.

Original Holiday Gift Ideas

It's hard to believe the holiday season is already here.  I love going to the brick and mortar stores and seeing all the decorations.  Great to see people having a good time shopping for their family and friends.  Often times we have someone on our list that we just can't seem to find the perfect gift for, or someone that seems to have everything!  I have a great idea for you.  You can get an original gift for someone right here online.  No more driving around spending time looking in several stores for that special gift.  Maybe you can find something in my Etsy store that will help you. 

I have several paintings, prints along with boxed notecards that make great gifts.  If you would like to

Here is just one example of something that the person hard to buy for may like!

Happy shopping!!
