Repainted a wooden swimming pool & spa "sign" for a Texas RV park. This is a "before AND after photo". The "before photo" is not an example of my work, but the weathered work of some previous artist. The "after photo" is what I could fit in the previous artist's space provided.

Of course, these are not my characters. They are just my renderings to fill a niche. A mother planning ahead for her daughter's themed 5th (UN-)Birthday Tea Party searched high and low for poster-sized pictures of the Alice characters. When she felt she exhausted every avenue, she put out a call for an artist to fill her need. Simple permanent marker and acrylic paint on poster board. (November 2012)

About Me:
I travel the country in an RV with my little family. I'm currently in southern California. I've been in the mood to paint an interior mural for several months now. (That's a hint for those of you who are looking for or always wanted a mural!)

I can't quote a blanket rate on work. (Occasionally, barter will work for me.) There are lots of issues involved in determining how much to charge. I charge less for things I am slower at, more for things I am at ease with. There are such factors like, what investments I may need to make in order to complete the job (research, supplies, distance of travel, in some cases postage, etc...). Sometimes a quote on the completed job is in order. It may depend on how desperate I am for funds. How much am I creatively involved? Am I just rendering? How much...
