Commissions. Several people who saw my show at EVP in October asked if I would paint a picture of their house for a present for their spouse. I did two houses on the eastside and both turned out very nicely. The clients really liked them. If you would like to commission a picture, please e-mail me (e-mail address is in the right column). I usually do a sketch on location and finish the picture in my studio or do it all on location, depending on the weather. I use oil-primed belgian linen canvas and artist-quality paints, so the picture will last a long time. Price is about $2 a square inch.
