Speed Painting of “Peacemaker” created June 7, 2013

Ok….a few problems with this one, but I am getting better! I forgot to take all the sound out before adding the music. Something I will not forget to do next time! I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I enjoyed painting “Peacemaker”.

The first of many art videos…enjoy!

Welcome to my art videos page! You’ve all heard the saying…..”everything happens for a reason”. I believe this wholeheartedly. We may not know why at the time but usually we can look back over our lives and see how God has fit all the pieces together.

You may or may not know that over the past 15 years I have been licensing my art. I paint watercolor Santas, snowmen, teddy bears, gardening, halloween, and so on. These paintings have been licensed and put on products, such as, greeting cards, calendars, quilting fabric, ceramic tabletop serving pieces, hooked rugs, figurines, gift bags/boxes, stationery, etc. This licensing journey has proven to be a rewarding and prosperous way of life….however, when the economy went downhill a few years ago, I was not spared. My royalties from sales dropped dramatically.

I didn’t let it get me down…. what it did was give me time to reflect and change my direction. Thankfully, I still have a demand for my watercolor paintings that I previously mentioned and I do fulfill those licensing requests, but the requests weren’t as demanding of my time like they use to be so I took my newfound extra time to develop a different direction for my art….mix media acrylic paintings. This is the most fulfilling work I have ever done. I am not only enjoying the creative process of these paintings, but it has allowed me to share my faith along the way.

What you see in the animoto video above is only a handful of some of my paintings but I thought it would be fun to put them into a video. Please feel free to share this video if you wish but I ask that you include a link back to my website,

I just watched your speed painting video of The Peacemaker. It was just great. Everytime I thought it would be finished you came bck in with another layer. I love it. I realize that it pays to keep going on and touch up more, try more, cover it again etc until you are satisfied. Thanks for sharing.

That is what I love about painting with acrylic…if you don’t like the background color, just paint over it! I love adding layer after layer until I am happy with it. Thanks for watching and sending your thoughts!
