My Paintings - Available Designs
To the left are links links to each of my design galleries. The slates that I paint on are shingles recovered from a very old barn that was torn down in Lancaster County.
Custom Orders: If you have something specific in mind you want painted (your cat, dog, horse, etc.) all you need to do is contact me with basic details and I will respond within 24 hours.
Nearly all of my designs can be customized with names. For example, if you like a snowman design but want a different color scheme or specific nose, or maybe you want a design personalized with a name. Just let me know.
Each slate is sealed with a UV resistant product and can be displayed inside or out. The sealant does make the slate appear darker and will also add more contrast to the painting. I include jute string to hang the slates utilizing the existing nail holes. If you are hanging the paintings outside I would caution you to be careful where you hang them. There is no UV protection that will protect the paint from eventually fading if you hang the painting in full sun. Additionally, a slate will break if it is hung somewhere that the wind can blow it against something. Pictures on this site are taken BEFORE the sealant is applied to reduce glare when taking the pictures.
Pricing on slates is based on the amount of work that goes into the design, not necessarily the size. If you want a design but want it smaller there may not be a difference in price unless the size difference is significant.
Please Note: I do not paint people. As a rule I do not paint licensed/copyrighted items such as Disney, NFL, etc. You can see in my custom design gallery that I have painted licensed subjects but I do not make a habit of this and these paintings each have special circumstances behind them. I also shy away from complex items with a lot of straight lines. This is because slates are not smooth. To paint a straight line on a bumpy surface is no fun. Its not impossible as you can see on some of my custom paintings but these are extremely challenging and more time consuming to paint.
