This is a commission I just finished this week for blogger Courtney Barnes. This was painted from the photo Courtney took of a beautiful chair she owns and a few favorite books (see bottom image). This was also used as part of her blog banner re-design that I did as well.

Her blog, Style Court, is one of my absolute favorites! It was recently mentioned in Elle Decor as one of editor Margaret Russell's top favorites also. Chock-full of beautiful photos and informative text, Courtney has a real gift for writing and design coupled with a very discerning eye. Thank you, Courtney, for giving me the opportunity to work with you!! This is also now available as a print on my Etsy site:

I welcome commissions for both paintings and blog banner design. I offer some very affordable options, so don't hesitate to contact me with inquiries at:
