With the end of October comes the start of what I refer to as "The Season of Secrets". It's the most wonderful time of the year, because Christmas is coming and everyone gets very happy and I get a fabulous amount of commissions! Just last week alone I got SEVEN new orders!
The only downside is, 80% of the orders I receive from October - December are presents from commissioner to commissioner's loved one, so sadly I can't show you any of those paintings until the holidays are over so I don't spoil any surprises!
Feast your eyes upon the only permitted photo that can be shown for now! MYSTERY! Intrigue!
Fortunately there's still that 20% of non-holiday painting that I'm working on, plus the paintings for the show I'm having this winter at Circle Square Salon in RVA! Here's the latest update on one of the paintings I'll have on display there. Info on opening night/duration of show will be up soon!
I'll be showing this completed 4x5 foot painting for the first time at the opening night at Circle Square Salon, so stay tuned to hear when that will be! :)
From teeny tiny pet portraits to large scale abstracts for a bedroom, you should think about a custom painting for a friend or loved one for the holidays! I promise not to show your custom paintings on the blog or any form of social media until your friends have opened them and screamed about how awesome you are. I have 3 spots open for custom paintings for the month of November, snag one now by filling out this:
10% of all orders during the month of November (National Alzheimer's Awareness Month) is donated to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America!
