My official Commissions page, complete with a rough (emphasis on *rough*--we can always talk or trade) price list for larger paintings:…

Please note that at least a down payment on the total is required to cover the cost of materials before I will begin work, and no piece leaves my hands until paid for in full. If one lump sum isn't possible, payments are welcome. PayPal is preferred, but I also accept money orders in USD. Personal checks are only accepted from clients with whom I have previously done business.

I hear in my mind all of these voices;
I hear in my mind all of these words;
I hear in my mind all of this music;
And it breaks my heart.
--Regina Spektor, "Fidelity"
It is flat-out embarrassing how long it has been since I updated anything here!  I've been checking my messages and watch lists regularly, but darned if I could be moved to post.  This past year saw the hardest post-con crash I've ever had thanks to a year that was quite unusual and very busy overall.  It genuinely felt GREAT to just say "To heck with it" and do a great of genuine nothing--save reading, cleaning, and relaxing--for a few weeks and to just let the holidays be the holidays.

That said, a few paintings did fight their way past my laziness, and I'll be catching my gallery up today.  I also want to extend a BIG thank you to Pam for gifting me a shiny new DA subscription!  Mine ran out some time ago, and I confess, my missing it (but not being willing to pony up the monies to renew it after such an expensive year) was another reason for my absence.  Now, to stage a semi-triumphant return!

Some of Pam's lovely jewelry:

Update:  The newbie paintings (some of them, anyway!) are up!

The Nitty-Gritty

All images and artwork are property of the artist and are not to be used in any media (including wallpapers) without express written permission. My art is NOT stock and is NOT public domain. Purchasing either a print or an original does not give the purchaser any rights to the image, all of which remain with the artist.

I do no work without a written, signed contract, and I absolutely will not work with parties who do not specify their intentions for a finished piece.

I do not do "concept work," nor will I accept commissions that I have reason to believe are concept requests in disguise (yes, this has been attempted).

Long-story short: If you enjoy my art, respect it, support it, and permit me to spend more time creating it instead of wasting time having to prove that something I physically painted is mine.

But of course!  My apologies for being so behind on your work.  I want to take my time with your tarot cards, but time seems to be always taking me away instead!
