This is a small 5x7 acrylic painting. I'm experimenting on trying small paintings... so far it's harder for me than doing bigger paintings. For me, the bigger the painting the easier and more enjoyable to do. Why is that?...

Here's a sketch of mine from a few years ago... I'm thinking of doing it as a painting... or larger drawing.  Any ideas?

I volunteer at my Church as a leader in the Young Women (12-18 year olds) program.  I was asked to make new covers for our leadership folders (it being a new year and all).  This is what I came up with.  Can you tell who it is?...

I am back from the holiday break.  Here are pictures of the "gifts" I made for my extended family.  They are each 8x10 size, and no two are exactly alike.  I even kept one for myself:)

Christmas Gifts... to be continued...

I haven't been slacking, it's just that I woke up a couple months ago with THE PERFECT christmas gift idea for all my family.  All my free time has been spent trying to get it all done.  I am very excited about this... and hope to finish it all TODAY!  However, I will not be posting pictures of these specific works until AFTER the holidays, so as not to spoil the surprise!  We will be joining our family for the holidays and I'm not expecting to get a lot done or posted during the break... so enjoy the Christmas Season.  See you again around the New Year!

"Man of Fire"

This definitely falls into the "abstract" category.  Years ago I made a similar painting of a male torso in fire... and I decided to continue the idea further.  It's fun to experiment every now and then.

This is a 16 x 20 acrylic painting on canvas.  Selling price is $200.

Birthday Present

There's nothing like waiting 'till the last minute!  Today is my father-in-law's birthday.  I've been meaning to make this picture for him days ago, but I whipped this puppy (he, he) out this morning.  I'm extremely happy with how it turned out.  I had something much less detailed in mind, but when I get going I want it perfect.  I hope he likes it!

This is an 8x10 charcoal drawing of the dearly beloved Buddy dog.

"Big Old Bison"

This painting has taken me forever to complete!  It seems when I'm right in the middle of a project I get sidetracked by millions of other ideas for my next project.  

This painting is on a 16 x 20 canvas.  Painted with acrylic paint and sealed.  Selling price: $125.00

Stay Tuned

I am currently engrossed in 2 projects.  One is a painting that is coming along nicely, the other a project for a local business.  I haven't been posting as much as I would've liked these last few weeks... but my schedule is slowing down and my work is picking up, so please don't give up on me!

"Indy Dog" (Custom)

Here is a watercolor pencil that I finished today.  It is 7 1/2 x 10.  This is a custom portrait of a beloved pet.  He is such a cutie!

"Male Torso"

Another favorite of mine(for obvious reasons).  This is a 16 x 20.  Charcoal on paper.  Isn't it beautiful?!  I love drawing the human body... it is a piece of art in and of itself.  This is about as "risque" as I get, though.

This piece sells for $50.  As always click on the picture for more detail.
Even if your not interested in purchasing this item... let me know what you think!

"Friendly Smooch"

This piece is a small 6.5 x 9... would look great matted.  It also is a watercolor pencil.  And another favorite of mine.  I can't say how much I love drawing animals, they can be so expressive!  This piece is selling for $15.

Custom Order "Baby Feet"

These are two custom pictures I just finished for a new mother.  The bottom one is not available (for that reason), but the top one is an extra.  The paper is 8x10, although you may want to frame it smaller since there is a lot of blank space around the drawing.  Both are pencil drawings.  This piece is for sale for $20.

This is an 8x10 Pastel drawing of the Salt Lake Temple's silhouette.

I'm willing to take orders for drawings of other temples, as well.  This piece (and others like it) sells for $20. (Sometimes more for commissions if they are very detailed).


This is an 8x10 watercolor pencil drawing.

Another favorite of mine from a few years back.  The frame is included with this piece.
This drawing is a good example of the kind of portraits I can provide.
This artwork is being sold for $80

"Garden Globe"

This is a 16x20 acrylic painting.  

This is an older piece of mine that I've been quite attached to.  The color blending is something that I can, and I have, stared at for hours.  
This painting is selling for $125.  Please contact me if you have further questions
