One of the things I enjoy most about being an artist, is gathering reference. I would much rather use my own photographs for a painting, and visiting the farms, traveling the countryside or coast is part of the wonderful journey of being an artist. When I would arrive at a farm, I would inevitably get to see a new litter of piglets, or my nieces new silkie chickens and peacocks, or precious bunnies. I decided it would be a great time to bring some of the cute babies out as a set for Springtime, Easter, or just a cute nursery gift.
Spring is an exciting time for renewal. Old things are passed away. Winter has decayed off the waste and fresh sprouts of green shoot forth. I love the colors of spring, but wanted to keep these new images soft enough for any muted grey home decor palette.
The babies are 6x6 canvases. They can be purchased individually or as a set of 3. They include a bunny
a silkie chick
and a piglet we met out at Seamark Ranch.
I am creating a lot of projects for the upcoming Vintage Market Days in Charleston, as well as Savannah in June, so they will be there also, but now available on my site.
I love the abstract blending of the background, but please remember that they will all vary slightly since they are hand-painted originals.
The individuals are $45 but the set of 3 farm babies can be ordered here for $125.
Comments will be approved before showing up.

One of the projects that give me the most JOY during the holidays is commissioned portraits that are LIFE CELEBRATIONS collages. I wanted to capture a personality which would involve their likes, their lyrics, their family, their memories and all that makes them who they are. It's difficult to think of combining all of that in one canvas, but my heart is to bring together enough of their life and memories to touch their heart.
The challenge for me as I work on them,
