Warm Winter Wishes on a mug

I painted this watercolor, "Warm Winter Wishes" of my son building a snowman on a frosty winter day.  With a suggestion of a colleague, I put the design on a mug from cafe press for $14.99.    Another very unique artistic gift for someone special on your list...

Give "Hope" to the one you love

"Hope" 
I love the Aspen groves in the Autumn.  I was inspired by the sun shining through the golden colors while hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.  The original pastel is sold but archival canvas giclees can be ordered through art for conservation.

"Bad Santa" (pastel)

Bad Santa
 I painted this rather satirical pastel of "Bad Santa" at one of my portrait/figure painting sessions last year.  We all had a lot of laughs while painting this rather awkward scene (including the models)  This has been by far my most "viewed" image on fine art america.  The original is still for sale, and at  fine art america  prints and cards can be ordered. (for those on your naughty list?)

Gingerbread House Christmas cards

I painted "Lisa's Gingerbread House" after we had made Gingerbread houses from scratch.  The original watercolor is no longer available but cards and/or prints can be ordered through red bubble.

Give Tranquility

I recently joined RedBubble.com.  This is another venue where I sell select images of my artwork.  What is very convenient is they will print high quality images in a variety of sizes, including greeting cards.  "Tranquility", the original oil that I painted from a hike high in the Rocky Mountains in the fall, is one that brings me peace of mind. The original painting is currently for sale at The Grand Lake Gallery in Grand Lake, Colorado.
