Canada Post Shipping Deadlines

This is just to give my clients an idea of how much time there is left to order gifts and have them shipped on time to US and Canadian Destinations.

The dates listed are the ones provided to me by Canada Post, I still like to ship sooner rather than later to avoid frantic emailing and worry over whether or not the package will be there to set under the tree.

I ship to the US via Expedited Parcel US and Canada is Expedited Parcel as well. If you are interested in a faster method (I recommend Expresspost) contact me first and I will provide you with a quote. If you have an account with a major shipper, I can probably do that as well.

Destination:

Canada - December 14th (expresspost would be December 17th)

USA - December 10th (expresspost would be December 14th)

On The Easel: The Mermaid Sisters



This is a commission I'm working on for some very special sisters I know. They will each have a mermaid when this arrives. They even got to pick out the hair and fin colour. These canvases measure 9" wide by 12" tall. Perfect for a little display in thier bedroom.

I still have a few spots open for Christmas commissions. If you are interested in something like this, or have another request contact me and we can figure something out.

On The Easel: Yellow Door



I've been working on this for over a week now - its pretty large 24" wide by 36" tall. As usual, the colours here don't do it justice in real life. I'll be finishing it in the next few days.

I've used my thick combed texture here and once I get all my details just right, I'll start laying down numerous washes to really add depth and richer colour.

Check back to find the listing. Contact me if you have any questions!

New on Etsy for the Christmas Season





I've added some more goodies made by my mother and father in law. Take a peek at my etsy store for a closer look.

ACEO style in Large Format - Completed

This piece was something I really took my time on. I layered thin wash after thin wash adding a huge amount of depth to the orange cast pavement. As you can see, the bottles have deepened shadows and glossy highlights. It is so much more striking in person.

I hope my client is pleased.
