This was a commission from the brides mother. Really enjoyed getting into thins one a bit more that the quick paintings. I am starting to really enjoy painting wedding bouquets. Much more attractive on the wall than old dry flowers I think!
The flowers were made by Springvine Design. www.springvinedesign.com

Bathtime Art Give Away Winner
This is a "bathtime art" bouquet made by Emily Kennedy-Kennedy Occasions. She was the most resent give-away I did on Instagram. I enjoy giving art away sometime on Instagram. Follow me!
As a full time HIgh School Art Teacher, sometimes its tough to get some art time in. I decided to see what I could get done during bath time one night. Put the kids in the bath, and make art while they do their thing. (don't worry they are old enough, and within my sight....more to fuss at them for splashing than for safety reasons) check them on Instagram, and maybe you can get on in the next Give Away! #springerbathtimeart

Uptown Church Handouts
Loved doing this tiny 4x6 painting of Uptown Church. They will be using it as a handout/flyer type thing at an upcoming event. Really cool to know your work will be passed around. I hope I make it to someones refrigerator that would be cool!
Great church, great folks, AMAZING place to get married!
This is a commissioned piece done of the Bolles School in Jacksonville Florida. It currently resides in the owners office in Pittsburgh, PA.
This was a commissioned piece I did for a family dear to my heart. This is their family home in Kentucky. The painting was done in Watercolor and ink roughly 8x10 inches on Arches hot press paper. This painting was given as a Christmas gift to a family member for Christmas 2014. It is always such an honor for a piece of my art to become a part of the family.
An amazing wedding in a beautiful location, in Charlotte NC. This wedding got me the great honor of an entire page shot of me painting. I cannot express how cool that is. I have much respect for Charlotte Wedding, they have a really amazing staff of folks an produce an outstanding magizine. Sorry I cannot show you the final piece just yet, the bride has not even seen it. Coming soon.
Two of the nicest folks I know, the Stillwell's. They are the parents of Callie McCrery, who is married to a great freind of mine, Jesse. They own my favorite place in the world OIB Surf and Java at Ocean Isle Beach, NC. Barry has always been a huge encourager of me and my art ever sense I met him. So a few weeks ago I went to their amazing home and snapped some pictures. Last week during a rainy day in my camper at the beach in between surf sessions, I worked on this.
Just some of my smaller pieces I thought were fun, and a few very different things I have done as well.
I often get commissioned to do pencil drawings, and I was honored to get to do 7 drawings for a Captain of the Charlotte Fire Department to give to his crew for Christmas.
I have also been a featured artist of a wonderful USA made paint pen company called BoardStix. I have done some really fun things with them and seen many younger kids create artwork on their own surfboards that amazes me.
