Art by Audrey Rawlings Arena.

I mostly work on gessobord (which I prefer for smoothness
to get good detail) or canvas for those who like its texture.
12"x16" one person-$450
16"x20" one person-$550
18"x24" one person-$650
this would include a simple background
or landscape of your choice.
each extra person on any size add $100
small animals add $50
large animals add $100
very elaborate background add $100 . 
Choose your favorite photos or ideas for me to
create a one of a kind oil painting that
will last for generations. My paintings are real
(not computer printed and retouched photos)

After you decide on a size & details for your painting
I can email you a paypal invoice for a downpayment
and will email sketches and photos of the painting in
progress, until you are happy with the finished work.
Then, when I recieve a final payment, I send the art
to you, or you can come and see it in progress and
pick it up when finished. I will be posting this message
on a few different sites, please help me spread the word.
I also do enamel illustrations on motorcylce tanks, helmets, etc.

Have you ever read or heard of the book "Hawksong" by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes?
It's a love story of a female avian shapshifter (Hawk form) and a snake shapeshifter, (Cobra form) whose families/people have been warring with one another for centuries but they sacrifice themselves to one another to save their people and end the war by joining both Species together. Trying to find peace but even that isn't enough to stop the hate and prejudice between the two clans. It's a beautiful book, it's part of a series but Hawksong is the first. It's one of my favorite books, do you think you could illustrate a specific scene from the book and or whatever you decide would work best for a piece?

Thanks for taking the time to view and compliment my work. I don't check in often with this page so forgive the tardy response! Regarding your work, it is a delight to see -great control of complex elements. I enjoy the very inviting and warm palette, as well. Keep the work coming...

Thank you for your beautiful work, and offer of friendship. Your paintings seem to exude a kindness and sweetness that surely must be within the heart of their creator

Hi, Audrey. Ken and I have been going to Renaissance fairs for at least 20 years now, but we must have met you around ten years ago when Rosie was wrapped around my neck like an ermine out at the Visalia fair. You took a picture of us, and I will always cherish it. So glad we met up again last year. We lost Rosie, but we found you again. You and Ray are our mirror couple! Your artwork is mysterious and enchanted, like you. How do you stay so sweet? I would like to try painting in oils once but am afraid of toxic fumes. I hope you wear a mask.

Thanks for sharing, they are beautiful. I have done oils before but got very sick from the chemicals so I stick with naturals. keep up the good work! God Bless you and yours too!
