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!
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.
Hi Everyone! Here is my first pet portrait. He is of course my own pup--Admiral Adama. Extra points to though who know where he gets his name. Check out the full painting HERE!
I hope to take on a few portrait requests in the next few months. Please contact me if you are interested via the contact page.
Have a great day!
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?
Just a quick painting of my favorite colors. Hope you have a sun-shiny day!
Here is a quick little snippet of a dog portrait I'm working on. He's my pup Admiral Adama. I'll post again in the week to show the finished product. STAY TUNED!
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!
Check out the new time-lapse of a quick drawing. Just trying to get back in the swing of drawing from real life whether it's photos or sitting there in the field. (Literally, because it's a cow... in a field... teehee, oh just keep scrolling) What critter would you want to see next? Requests are always appreciated!
Enjoy the video and enjoy your week!
Here is another time lapse of a watercolor painting. I used watercolor paint, pen, and pencil. Please enjoy and have a wonderful holiday!
Another video, yay!! Can't be grumpy hanging out with these 12 little critters! Created with watercolor and pens. Have a happy day! These Christmas critters will be available for cards in the shop!
Hope you enjoy this little video. I'd like to create more of these so ya'll can keep up with what I'm working on. Let's try shall we.
Have a great day!
