Below are selected commissions I have taken on for friends and family. Reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in discussing a commission.
This was an anniversary present from a husband to his wife and is based on a photo taken on their wedding day in the presence of this big, beautiful tree. I’m told that the bride— in her beautiful wedding dress— was loaded into the back of a pickup truck and driven through a creek and farm fields in order to reach this special tree for the photo shoot! What a great memory to have of such a special day!

“Rome” at Lutherwald
by Julie Ann Biddle
Acrylic on canvas
My son served as a camp counselor for a couple of summers for Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Indiana-Kentucky at Lutherwald and this was his cabin. He sent me a couple of photos and made his request. I tried to convey peace as well as possibilities; I like to think that is what my son and his charges found there. After I finished his painting, he surprised me by commissioning a second one that he donated the camp.
And, yes, there’s poison ivy….
Flowers Around the Pond
Through the Archway
Acrylic on canvas
(10”x 8”) each
I absolutely LOVE this garden! I was thrilled to do a second commission involving it—this time a trio of smaller paintings. I wanted to honor the creativity, the artistry, on display in this plot of ground, and again highlight the sense of peace.
Acrylic on Gessoed Board
This was a surprise Christmas present for the talented lady who created this garden from her husband and family. I did my best to capture the abundance, the energy, and the sense of peace I felt walking through this space.
