True Love – Chase and Charlotte

I recently completed this pet portrait of 2 of my favorite dogs. Chase, the Beagle/Basset Mix, was the soulmate of our Shepherd mix Jezebel. Chase and Jezebel spent many years running and playing together. Sadly both of them have now crossed the rainbow bridge. Now, Fred has a new love Charlotte. Charlotte is the beauty in the foreground of this portrait. We no longer live across the street from each other but Charlotte comes to stay with us often and she and our Millie are now soul sisters. I love seeing the second generation of best dog buddies. Fred’s mother commissioned this portrait of Chase and Charlotte for Fred’s birthday. What joy it brought me to bring these 2 loves of mine to life in glass.

Piccolo Spoleto Fine Craft Show – Charleston -5/31 – 6/2

How hot is too hot?? Well, we made it through the first 4 days with 100 degree plus weather. Come out and visit me this weekend Friday May 31 – Sunday June 2. We are in Wragg Square in beautiful downtown Charleston. Wragg Square is at the corner of Meeting Street and Charlotte Street, near the Charleston Visitors Center. I would love to have you come by and visit me. It is supposed to be a little cooler this weekend. We are in the shade of gorgeous Live Oaks.

Christmas Commission 3, 4 and 5

I did 3 pet commissions of dogs this year. As most of you know, this is probably my favorite thing to create because I love dogs so much. I finished a horse portrait for the first time so I will show you that one in a couple of days and have 2 beautiful Himalayan cats to complete in January.

Here are Bailey and Bentley – a Doodle and a Yorkie mix

Here is another Bailey. This Bailey is a very sweet female Irish Setter doodle. I had never seen one of these but she has more of the beautiful red in her ears and in her beard.

And lastly, this is sweet Paisley, who is a Border Collie. She was laying down and giving her mom her sweet, come play with me look.

Christmas Commission Reveal 2

Here is another fun piece that I made for another mom. She is going to hang this above her kitchen bar between the kitchen and the family room. I worked with her son and granddaughter to come up with a pink dogwood branch. This piece is 12 inches high by 36 inches long.

This photo is with the light coming in behind it.

This is a not great photo of it without the light behind it.

Christmas Commission Reveals!

I am so excited to let you have a peak at some fun things that I created this year for clients to give as Christmas presents. I had a wide array of requests this year which made it extra fun to create these.

Today’s commission is a special lantern that I made for a mom. It is the 4 seasons of cardinals. Each side has the cardinal in their natural habitat for that season. If you know someone who might enjoy having one of these, here is the Link to purchase one. This is the small lantern. I can also do it on the large lantern for $109.99 with free shipping.
