I've started a new business! I'll still be painting of course, but I've discovered that I love to help people de-clutter and organize their homes! Check out my new blog to learn more about it! creativeclutterbusting.blogspot.com
This company has been a maker of fine custom wooden jigsaw puzzles since 1974. Some of my images are available as collectible, one of a kind puzzles. www.stavepuzzles.com/?p=store&artist_id=394
A Toffee Tale is an up and coming company in Champaign Urbana that sells homemade toffee products. I designed business cards, price tags, and the image on their home page. The owner, and creator of these scrumptious toffees, Audra, also commissioned a large painting on her fantasy theme. Check out her website here: http://www.atoffeetale.com/
When I read the White Dragon, a book in the Dragon Riders of Pern series, I was inspired to paint "The MasterHarper's Study". See it here. It was my good fortune that Anne saw it at a SF convention art show, and bought it. She gave me permission to make reproductions of it. Haven't read her books? check out her website here!
My favorite graphic novel series is Elf Quest. The art of Wendy Peni impressed me with it's grace, detail, and personality. The story line, written by both Wendy and Richard Peni had depth and poignancy. As a portrait painter, I felt challenged to attempt painting the two main characters as though they had posed for me in my studio. See it here. Check out their website here.
The British TV series "Robin of Sherwood" is arguably the most historically correct, and best written version of the Robin Hood legend ever created. I fell in love with the series, and obtained permission from its creator, Richard Carpenter, to do a series of paintings and limited edition prints of its characters. See some here. To know more about the series, check out it's official website here.
