Skip Paints

Hey Blogging Friends, I wanted to let you know about a new business my husband is beginning. It is called Skip Paints and he is doing individual paintings in an impressionistic style. Skip has been painting since before we married, but only recently has felt the longing to make his hobby into something more in his limited free time.

If you are interested in seeing just a few of his works, go here. He is starting to take orders, and you can get a price list by emailing him from the website if you are interested in learning more. Each painting is done in heavy oil paints, and can be shipped if needed.

I only have a few original paintings in my home, but there is just something so special about an original work of art. The feel/texture and look which is different from what anyone else has, as well as the artist's eye and interpretation of it's subject.

Go by and take a look. A painting of your children would make an excellent gift for your spouse, parents, or yourself.

This is SO cool, Susie. My DP and I were discussing it the day you posted the painting of your children that we thought Skip should paint for others as well.

I would love to check out prices and see if he could take a photo of our children and paint it as a gift for my inlaws. They would love it, and then it would be ours someday, too.

What a talent he has, and I am so happy for you that he's going to focus on this more intently. Thanks for letting us know about it!
