A Custom Truck Painting

Well, this is a first! I've never been commissioned to paint a truck before, but last Christmas I met a man at a local show I did who saw this truck illustration and wondered if I might be able to do a custom portrait for him of an old truck he was helping to restore. I don't usually agree to paint automobiles, but it happened to be a truck I really liked, so I said, "Sure. Why not?"

Here's how the painting turned out. If it were totally up to me, I would have added A LOT more wildlife (ha!), but I'm not sure it would have qualified as a "truck portrait" in that case. Anyways, just thought I'd share! :)

Well, I'm relaunching my business after taking some time off to have a baby and thought it'd be fun to do a Mother's Day giveaway (appropriate, right?) of a Custom Home Portrait in acrylic. The photos above are an example of what you'd receive if you won the giveaway- a 5x7 illustration of your home on a cradled wooden canvas. I want to run the giveaway now so that there's plenty of time to paint and mail out the portrait before the big day.

To enter, just drop your email in the box below. That signs you up for my newsletter. If you're already on my newsletter list, you don't need to do a thing because you're already entered in the giveaway!

The giveaway will run at the beginning of next week and winner will be notified via email.

Today I wanted to share a few photos of last year's Pet Portrait ornaments because they're just too cute not to talk about at least once! I loved painting these ornaments so much and can't wait to paint another batch of them this year. I decided to keep all of my custom ornament options consistent in size and price, so I'll no longer be offering these smaller disc ornaments. Each Pet Portrait ornament will be 4" in diameter like the photo below:

A limited number of them will be available for purchase every month this year if you're interested in stocking up before the holidays. Find them here!
