My latest commissioned works

These are a few of my most recent commissioned pieces.

Antebellum Historical Home

This is a historical home in a rural area not too far from our city.  It is an antebellum home that I was asked to draw as a gift for the owner by his daughter.  I absolutely love the architecture and character of this home, with the gingerbread detailing around the porch and long windows across the front. I love doing historical homes, especially ones that I know have been around hundreds of years.

Lovely Brick Architecture

This was a commission as a gift for my client’s parents.  I love the architecture of this home.  Drawing all those bricks can be a little tedious, but I really do enjoy it.  I know that it would drive some artists crazy, but it’s the architectural details that I just love about these pieces.

For One of My Bridesmaids

One of my sweet friends from college, who was a bridesmaid in our wedding 30 years ago, wanted to surprise her husband with a drawing of the house they have lived and raised their three girls in for close to 20 years.  What a joy to do that for her.

It’s such a privilege to get to be a part of these types of gift giving and surprises in honor of special events in people’s lives.  I am so thankful the Lord has allowed me to do something I love doing so much..

  1. You draw to perfection, my friend! Your drawings actually make their home look so much better than they are. The one photo has an arch and I didn't see it until I looked at your drawing. Your work is exquisite.
