I love painting ornaments. I've done glass balls in the past, but have moved to mostly wood slices in the past two years. I'll create a glass ornament on request, although I love the look of the wood slice ones now. Just about any nature themed subject might find its way onto one of my ornaments. Here's a peak at some of this year's designs.
The back of the ornaments is just as important as the front. I take as much are with the back of the ornaments in designing and painting text and images. I also leave some of the backs blank for personalization. I can add a name or a particular saying.
Pet Portrait Ornaments - I do quite a few commissioned portrait ornaments. I've done dogs, cats, horses, goats, mules, and pigs! It's always an honor to do a memorial ornament for a beloved pet.
This year I've also started creating ornaments that celebrate New Hampshire. I love living in this special area that is about 45 minutes from the sea coast, 90 minutes from the white mountains and 45 minutes from Boston. My Mt. Washington Summit ornaments are very popular and I am working hard to keep them in stock. Congratulations to all of you who have climbed that iconic mountain! I also love to paint New Hampshire's native wildlife and birds. I have so many wonderful memories of vacations in New Hampshire's great north woods and lakes region.
My ornaments are available in my Etsy shop (Link below) and at the Village Bean in Windham, New Hampshire. You can also email me at email@example.com or post a comment here. Thank you.
