This commissioned 18″ by 24″ oil painting was created to celebrate the many aspects of Tom’s life; from his family farm and love for Ohio State, to his favorite tractor, loving wife and years of working for Goodyear. Happy 60th Tom!
“Miles” is a 3 ft by 2 ft multimedia painting I created as part of a commission piece series for McPherson Veterinary Services in Murfreesboro. Miles, our 4-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, has been visiting Dr. McPherson since he was a puppy, and he loves her and her amazing staff. Dr. McPherson is redecorating her office, and we have come up with this funky style to depict some of the adopted cats and dogs that are her clients. All of the money from painting these adopted pets will be going to fund our adoption, so this series is both meaningful and a lot of fun. The first room is done, so swing by and check it out if you’re in the area!
“Magic” is a 16″ by 20″ oil painting created as a special gift to some of my friends who recently gave birth to a precious baby boy. His nursery is inspired by Harry Potter, and his mom loves to read. I used their house colors in the sky, Hogwarts castle is popping up from the book, and of course a quote had to be included from Dumbledore!
Michael Busey is a wonderful Christian man with a wealth of knowledge about business and finance. He recently started a new business venture as a State Farm agent in Murfreesboro, and he asked me to paint this 10′ by 10′ wall mural of Murfreesboro in the office entry way. If you are local, swing by and take a look.
“Stay” is a 20″ by 30″ oil painting commissioned by some of my friends from small group at church. They are wonderful, creative and talented people so I was honored to be asked to paint this work. This painting hangs in their living room as a reminder of where they’ve been and where they’re going as a couple.
I was asked to paint something for the Cougar Cottage dining room which is a place for the MTCS family to gather and fellowship. The president of MTCS and his wife are wonderfully generous people, and this 4′ by 2′ oil painting describes one of their favorite hymns. It is a challenging one to live by, but they model it on a daily basis.
I have some wonderful, talented friends who wanted a combination of paintings created that would remind them of some of their favorite things, both individually and as a couple. This oil painted wall-collage is made of 9 separate 16″ by 12″ canvases each representing a favorite thing. It was a lot of fun to paint and it looks great hanging in their newly re-decorated living room.
This 2′ x 4′ oil painting was commissioned by Daniel’s cousin to give to her boyfriend as a Christmas present. It was very fun to do because she wanted sort of a past, present, and future feel, showing the evolution of logging through time. The far left is painted to look like a black and white photograph, then I tried to slowly fade into a muted color palette in the middle image, and then fade to full color in the most important section of the canvas, their favorite picture from his company’s work site.
