"Cracked Ice" 16 x 20 acrylic on canvas Abstract

16 x 20
Something a little different from me today!
When we were up at the cabin at Murphy Lake, last month, there was hardly any snow on the lake.
I took some cool pictures of the ice and what it looks like when it cracks.
The real life version is not nearly as colorful,
but this is how it looks inside my head! Check out my ETSY store

Everlasting Love Angel Wings

20 x 28
Everlasting Love
I love how these wings came together.  These were done using my parents loveletters they exchanged while apart.  The got engaged after a short, three week, romance and will celebrate their 54th wedding anniversay in April.  The letters are filled with love and promises, hopes and dreams. 
I love the red lips she pressed to the top of the page with a little note that said "from me".
I have included the stamps and postage marks and some antique love songs, including "Tenderly"
Pen and ink finish off the painting with swirls and roses.
You can contact me through this blog, my Etsy store or Facebook.
Thanks for looking!

Leslie's Wings of Love - A Commission

These are Leslie Graham's Wings of Love
So great to work with her.
She brought me her Grandparents' love letters, her parents love letters, baby footprints and copies of their hospital braclets, letters from her family and music books from over the years.
Leslie is a Reiki Master, so I included some Reiki symbols, and orbs.
I felt honored to be a witness to all the love from the generations of her family. Check out my ETSY store

A mixed media painting using antique hymns and antique books.

I am currently working on a set of wings for a lovely lady.  She brought me her grandparents' and parents' love-letters, her daughter's footprints, photos, and music, and some old cards.  I made copies of the letters and photos, not wanting to tear up the originals.  And the wings are gorgeous!!
Can't wait to show you.
Also, I am in love with her grandparents.  Their letters were filled with love, adoration, and romance!!
How perfect for Valentines day!
Wouldn't a personalized painting like this make the most fantastic wedding gift?
You could add the date, a copy of their invitation, childhood drawings, oooooh, the list is never-ending!!!!
