Gifts From the Heart

Sometimes it's hard to find the perfect gift for someone who has everything. But they could just have many materials things that they've bought themselves, and would never think to have a painting specially made for them. It's a personal gift of love that comes form the heart and will always be cherished and used (or seen, I should say). I mentioned in my earlier post that I have done a few commissions over the years and this is one of them. I was commissioned by a gentleman to paint this portrait of his father, as a gift to his mother. His father had past away not long before. Handsome man, don't you think? The gift was received with great love and I was told how visitors often admire the painting. I think this has been my most special painting to date. 

Here's another commissioned piece I did. This one was for someone who wanted to remember a beautiful place she had once lived. Beautiful place indeed! I was just noticing this one reminds me of my latest piece. This one was 11x14 though and my latest is only an 8x8. I think I prefer the larger size. 


If you are interested in having a special piece done, just email me at jbboutique at yahoo.com and we can chat. I just received a new commission I'm excited about. 
It's of someone's young son and his friend and should be fun to paint!

Jennifer, as a long time admirer of your painting, I can only say that you have an amazing gift for painting in so many varied ways and they are all masterpieces. Truly. from the bottom of my heart, you should be having some showings in galleries, if you haven't already. Your talent is astounding!

Thank you Susan! He was a very handsome man!

Jane, your kind words are truly appreciated! Thank you so much!
I'm in a local gallery right now but hoping to branch out sometime in the future. Mostly I'm just online.

You've both made my day with your sweet comments!
