In the Works For 2021
2021 planning includes new artwork that will be available for purchase individually or in series.  Nature-based, these are groups of 3-5 watercolour paintings of birds, wildlife and domestic animals.  Originals will be for sale and prints may be available depending upon number of requests. 

January, February, March: Birds  
April, May, June: Wildlife  
July, August, September: Domestic animals 
October, November, December: Aquatic life  

Is there a specific bird or animal you'd love to see as a painting? Let me know, and feel free to send photos!  

Updates on these and other projects will be posted on a monthly basis, so visit often to see what's new :)  


Portrait Commissions
Starting now and throughout 2021, commissions for portraits are being accepted.  This genre of artwork makes a wonderfully unique, personal gift that expresses love, and commemorates any living or departed person or pet whom you cherish.  Choices of medium are graphite, pastel, watercolour or oil paints.  The cost of a portrait can be significantly reduced by pooling resources and having it done as a 'group gift' for a special friend or famiy member! Framing can also be provided at additional cost.  (Packaging and shipping fees for framed items will be higher due to increased size and weight.)  

To protect all parties, an agreement of purchase/sale with an estimate of the final price will be provided within 48 hours of placing your order.  A minimum 35% non-refundable deposit is required immediately after, with the balance including applicable taxes due by completion of the work*.  

Call 905-746-3647 or send an email using the Contact form and I'll be happy to discuss the project with you!  


IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ 

Your commission does NOT include shipping. You are required to make your own arrangements, or request shipping at additional cost. Delivery right to your door if your location is in Canada within 75 km of Hagersville, Ontario.  

*At this time payments are accepted via e-transfer only.

  observations skills, how to analyze a subject for drawing,  
  basic/intermediate/advanced techniques, and composition.
