10x10 - heART Painting by Natalie Ray; Painted on Board with Gold Leaf Sides. Continuous "Peace Be With You" is engraved in the paint in the background of the piece.
Natalie Ray Designs, my studio, originated in 2000. I am mesmerized by color and light.. always have been. I think I just see everything in vibrant color.
I love capturing memories.. memories in paint. If it has some significant meaning to the client, I truly get a connection when working on the piece. Over the years I have created several pieces of "first date" restaurants, a family's first home, favorite vacation spots, etc.
As of late, however, most of my commissions are of people: a child's championship team (baseball, soccer, basketball, etc.), children/grandchildren as a Mother's Day or Christmas gift and many engagement/wedding moments as a wedding gift.
I would love to paint a special piece for you and help capture your special memories in paint!
