This week, I’m working on a companion painting to the one above. I painted it in 2007 for Melissa Connolly and her three pets. Since then, Melissa has added two cats and a dog to the family. When the new piece is completed, she’ll hang them side by side in her home. I really love painting for repeat clients! The coolest part of this is seeing my maiden name signature (“erika jessop”) in the corner.
All of this talk about the furry members of our families has inspired me to have a big sale on pet paintings. You can commission a canvas painting (any size below) of your pet(s) alone, or have me paint your whole family. As long as there’s a creature in there, it’s 30% off!

Just had to share a few of Rooney from a couple weeks ago. He’s such a sweet boy. Soft fur, wet nose, and floppy ears…what more could I ask for?
Have a good weekend, everyone!

I recently had the pleasure of taking photos of one of my favorite families…in an absolutely incredible mountain locale. And my subject even snapped this little instant photo of me in action. I love it! Please stay tuned for photos from the session.
And a quick announcement: please visit my new photo blog for my recent adventures and portfolio work.
Sometimes it can be a challenge. After all, we creative types can be very demanding and fickle…”Fetch me my paints! No, my watercolors! Now bring out the crayons and markers!”
I had the young art prodigy in mind when I created this new tee shirt, printed with the words creative genius.
My original illustration is on a white cotton tee. They’re available in two styles and nine sizes.

The image is not printed on the surface. It is dyed into the fibers of cotton, so it feels nice (not stiff).

Brandon and I are spring cleaning this weekend. I got a new shoe organizer for my bedroom closet, so my canvas inventory had to find another corner of the apartment to dwell. I didn’t realize how many I keep on hand until I dragged them out! These are the lovely canvases from DickBlick that I use for my custom canvas commissions.
I offer six sizes on my price menu, but I also order extra sizes for custom requests and originals I create for my etsy shop.
These canvases are fabulous! I have used this brand for almost two years now. The quality has always been super and if there’s a small flaw in the surface, DickBlick is always happy to swap it for a good one. They hand-build each canvas with mitered stretcher bars. The canvas is 7 oz. pre-gessoed, so I can start painting without spending extra time prepping the surface. It’s lovely.
There’s your little glimpse into my studio : ) Happy Easter, everyone!
