Here are two small paintings I did for a dear college friend if mine named Emily. She commissioned me to paint these as a surprise for her husband Justin's birthday. It's of both of their homes...the first is in the country, then just a few years ago they moved to an urban setting near Cincinnati, Ohio. Anyway, I wish I have saved the reference photos because it would be interesting to see next to my finished paintings....but can't find them on my computer, oh well! Side note: Emily and Justin are just about the neatest people you'll ever meet. We visited them a few years ago while they were in the country and they started roasting coffee using a popcorn popper....there's been a lot of crazy open doors and a lot of hard work since then, they just opened a coffee shop where they sell their own roasted coffees. (They also ship I'm pretty sure if you need gift ideas or are a coffee lover yourself) They have a unique mission of intertwining missions with coffee.

Well, my month-long break has ended and I'm back at it! :) But don't think I was slacking...during my break we moved houses and I pretty much painted an entire house...so I still had a LOT of 'brush time'! It might take another week before we start back with posting paintings. It's been crazy around here and Wes just needs to some time to upload photos and soon we should be fully back in operation. :)
This weekend I am participating in my second 'Paint Out'. If you've been following my blog, you'll remember that I did one this summer in Noblesville, IN. The one this weekend will be at Hanover College, here's the website for the event: http://rivers.hanover.edu/newsevents/greatriverpaintout11.php. We are going to be camping for two nights with our friends Stephen and Rachel. Here's Rachel's website: http://www.rachelsteely.com/. This should be a lot of fun....I am nervous though! We'll be sharing photos from the weekend once we get back, so stay tuned!
Welcome to my blog!
I'm on a mission to paint 500 paintings. How long will it take? What will I learn along the way? Join me on the journey and follow my progress!
