Congratulations Joey and Stacey!

My cousin Joey just got engaged to his soul mate. He is very talented photographer. Please visit his page here. When I got engaged, Joey treated me to an engagement portrait session at The Grounds for Sculpture. Naturally, it was my privilege to use my creative skills in celebration of this event. If you’re interested in a custom watercolor engagement or wedding portrait, please e-mail me at jashmen@gmail.com or visit my Etsy shop.

Congratulations, Joey and Stacey! I wish health and happiness to you both.

Custom Couple Watercolor Painting

This is my second watercolor couples portrait. I really enjoy painting two people that are in love. It is my hope that more of these types of commissions roll in. The first was a wedding present, this will be a Christmas gift. Chemistry between lovers is not easy to capture, but when the paint finally catches it, the whole piece shines.

Full of Spirit

The following watercolor piece was commissioned by an old friend. It is of her and her fiance. She is framing the watercolor with their vows and giving it to him their wedding day. I am honored to have been chosen to create such an important painting.
