Holiday commissions time! Gift certificates available.

There's still time to commission an original colored pencil painting  for Christmas.  It takes up to 6 weeks to finish a custom portrait.  Or you can simplify, by purchasing a gift certificate, featuring Linus as Santa; "Linaclaws." Full color, one subject, 8x10's start at $450.00.



Schmoozing at the Fair of the Arts.

Beautiful blustery Saturday at the Fair of the Arts in Anderson Township Ohio. Many people, strolling through lovely Beech Acre Park, stopped by to see my art. I'm hoping one or two will become a Pepper Portraits patron.

Signed, but never quite finished.

Here's the signed version.  I have since obscured  the eyes that seemed to peer out from the tree. But, one thing I missed, was the compositional no-no of placing the vertical line of the tree right down the middle.  By the time I noticed it was too late. Hopefully the Lillies and light draw your attention away from my faux pas. Now off to the framer.
