October Portraits

October, one my very favorite months of the year, is right around the corner! It's so sneaky the way it creeps up on me every year. I think what I love most about this month is how strong my desire is to be outside enjoying the God's beautiful creation. It's such an inspiring time for an artist!

I wanted to announce two things today. First, I will be out of the studio the first week in October for a camping trip. Every year Seth and I enjoy a few days out in nature, walking, riding horses, and sitting by camp fires late into the evening. This year may be a little more challenging since we're taking the baby. Wish me luck! ;)

The second announcement is my shop-wide price increase. I'd love to keep my prices as affordable as possible, but I usually have such a demand for custom portraits that I really feel it necessary to raise my prices every now and again to enable me to keep up on the orders. It's a bit overwhelming to me to have orders booked 6 or more months out. I'd really prefer to keep it around 3-4 months out.

So, if you've been considering a portrait for a friend or loved one or have a bare spot on your living room wall that you'd love to fill with a beautiful and meaningful painting, please feel free to browse my shop, pick a favorite, and purchase today.

Thank you for the years of support and love! I truly am blessed each and every day to be able to paint for a living. It's is truly humbling.
