Going On Vacation! New York City!

Hello Everyone;

ALL commission work has been put on hold until I return from my trip. Expect work to pick up the weekend of the 27th. Anyone requesting drawings (as I can easily take paper and pencil along) MAY have limited progress.
I'm heading to New York early tomorrow morning! I have been so busy preparing to leave I have not had much of a chance to work on art or post any new photos- it's alot of work to set up a garden, house, two pets, and everything else for over a week. We will be staying in an apartment in Greenpointe, Brooklyn from the 17th until the 2th. I will likely post up some pics our adventures. I hope to get some shots of the sea life at the Brooklyn aquarium we plan to visit for artwork!

I did however, receive another informal (the effiel tower!) and one formal (Kitty portrait) commission request. The formal request took the LAST offer at $23.99! Looks like I'll be booked for small paintings until mid-July- and large Paintings are on hold until the forest painting is done. (: My prices for small paintings WILL go up, but I promise I won't be in the $400+ margin like many I've seen just yet! Also, as always, my former customers will always get a good deal, (coupons) as well as blog followers. (10%) I will be creating other unique discounts as well- like one specifically for people wanting a portrait of a rescued animal. I don't have the room to rescue more myself- (and Jade might have words with me) but I want to help the cause any way I can- If you rescue, you get a great deal with me!

I have been thinking about creating an artist's website- with detailed options, prices, and sizes. I was thinking of adding a portfolio- and putting more formal documents up like commission agreements with an e-signature, ect. I am also going to offer pencil, pastel and colored pencil options for portraits. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them!

Thank you so much for reading- I will be online throughout the vacation, so if you want to check back, I may have posted~!



  1. Aww there's my babies! That website sounds like a really good idea!!!

  2. GET OUT! I used to live in Greenpoint Brooklyn!!! Russell Street (near McGoldrick Park)....Have a wonderful time!

  3. Eliza_ I'm on Manhatten Ave- (between Eagle and Freeman) I have no idea how close that would be to where you lived! That's a pretty amazing coincidence- as Brooklyn is HUGE! We just got here- really like the neighborhood- it's SUPER loud though because they are filming a movie RIGHT outside our door all day- and I think they're coming back tomorrow! LOL
