Here's Spike!

Here's a new commission for a pet portrait. Little Spike likes to go outside and hunt. If you would like a portrait of your furry friend please contact me via the Contact page. I hope you have a great day!

Woo hoo! I just got my 100th follower on Instagram. I know its a meager milestone but I try to celebrate the little achievements. You can follow me on Instagram too! Relyea_Arts 

So I decided to commit to 100 small sketches of animals. I will try to post one a day but I'm not making any promises! lol 

A little red panda - this little dude took me longer than it should've. That's what happens when you stop drawing.  001/100 - LETS DO THIS THING!


Morning Walk

Had to get up early for this one! I love nature photography and I've been trying to get better at getting a shot or two. Such an unpredictable thing to try to capture. Hope you like. HERE is the full image.

When Nature and Art Meet

We stopped by to see the new Peace River Botanical Garden and Sculpture Garden in Punta Gorda, Florida. 1st stage is open now with 11 acres of gardens, sculptures, boardwalks, gazebos, and snack bar. Future stages will open more acreage (26 or so), an art gallery and lots more plant life and artwork to look at! Can't wait!

Go support art and nature at your nearest Gardens or Park! Where do you like to go to see nature and art combine

Happy Valentine's Day!

I like celebrating Valentine's day with any type of love - romantic, friendship, family, or even the love we should have for strangers, our fellow human. Whether you celebrate with a friend, spouse, or a sibling today is about feeling the love! Maybe buy a stranger behind you a coffee at the drive thru. Or give a coworker a extra nice hello. Just try spreading the love. Hope you have a great day!
