I draw about my Grandma Lois all of the time. I draw about how she had breast cancer and how she wore sleeveless, polyester nightgowns to bed and we slept under a painting of Jesus on the cross. I draw about her love of liverwurst sandwiches and PBR, her fondness for the song Bye, Bye Blackbirds, black coffee, and waffles with too much whipped cream. Drawing about her makes me feel that she is with me.

My hope is that I can bring back or capture the things about a person that matter most to you too by creating a commissioned portrait for you (Drawing style predicted here). The standard size for this is 11” x 14” , but you are welcome to contact me if you have something bigger in mind. Shipping prices will be determined upon completion and billed separately.

My favorite things to draw are animals (especially dogs, wolves, and birds, but who doesn’t love an occasional cat or two?) and in drawing people, I tend to draw the items that defined your experience of them.

Generally, drawings will be completed within a month of your order. Rush pricing is available. Contact me for details.

The other drawing pictured here is about Great Grandma Connell and all of the curious things she had in her wee little apartment. Please send me as many details and photos that you like to help me better understand the essence of your person or pet (favorite color, favorite toy, an item that makes you think of them, a story you tell all of the time).
