NEW ! Homes Sweet Homes
Homes, sweet homes... A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of painting a friend's family home, commissioned as a gift for a special birthday. It was such fun, that I thought I'd go back through my catalog and compile some other projects, special homes and places I've made for folks, for all manner of occasions. The styles vary a bit, but in each, I've worked with the clients and tried to capture the spirit of these special places. I'm pleased to say that the recipients have always been surprised and pleased with these one of a kind gifts. I'd love to make something special for you!
Joan’s Garden. A specially commissioned thank you gift for a special lady, commemorating years of friendship and service.
Adam’s World. Commissioned for a young musician on his college graduation. Commemorating the places he’s been and the world he’s about to explore!
Vincent. A beautiful Chicago restaurant, this was made for the owner, soon to be made into postcards to advertise his delicious place.
Julia. Made with Grandma in mind, this is lovely Julia playing in the back yard.
Magic on the Hudson. This project was a lot of fun. It’s a whimsical view of the West Village neighborhood in New York City. It was created for a young tv and film editor, celebrating her favorite urban experiences. There she is, zooming over the city on her magic Vespa. Watercolor, ink, with gold embellishments.
Two Sunflowers. This was a commission, inspired by another. A client saw the Gerber painting, and wanted a Sunflower piece in the same style. It was a gift for a friend in the airline industry, and if you look carefully you can see a tiny plane hidden in the background. Watercolor, acrylic and ink, with gold embellishments.
Janet’s Alaska. This larger canvas was a family gift, commissioned to celebrate a mom’s birthday, and everything she loves about her home in Alaska. Acrylic on canvas.
Twilight Lake. A companion piece to “Lanier by night” . This is another view of Lake Lanier, in the early evening light. Watercolor.
The Lover’s Embark (Let Me Sow Love) - A very cool shower gift, for an extremely cool couple, on the verge of getting married.
Father’s Day. “This mixed media painting was commissioned for a Father’s Day gift. It celebrates the client’s favorite way to spend time - in the backyard garden with his young son.”
Tony and Sons. "This was a birthday gift commission for my friend Tony. I adapted photographed images to create this moment in silhouette, of Tony and his young boys at their new home in Florida."
Robot Chick - "A birthday gift for a robot enthusiast".
