commission me

I have always loved the curlicue. To me, the springy gesture is full of pure joy. I sealed my love for this emphatic flourish the first time I used it, as a decoration on an envelope that made the address “smile.” Soon it multiplied and danced its way into every piece of my work. They sprang from flowers, curled into noses, and even bounced straight into my signature. ‚Ä®With all these curlicues twirling about, my hope is to make you smile…even if it’s just a tiny corner smile.

Commission Jules for a unique painting, pillow, or slipcover: Dogs, people, or flowers, are my favorite. Please email me a few close-up photos–shoulder-up, and a brief description about the person, or dog; such as favorite colors, wearing a hat, scarf, earrings, tiara, etc. I will try to include these in your painting to represent their personality. I also have a list of items that you can refer to if your imagination feels a little stuck. I include a humorous title up the side, and over the top of the canvas, and also do this for the slipcover. Lastly, there is a sprinkling of a few, unexpected sequins. This completes your Jules’, one-of-a-kind, painting, pillow, or slipcover. 50% deposit required with your order.

Dog Paintings:

I love dogs of all sorts…pound dogs, rescue dogs, and designer dogs. They all have unique personalities, and I portray this in my paintings. Their eyes look up, down, or sideways, but never straight ahead. By doing this, it displays their attitude of “What now?”, or “Look at me!”…such personalities!

People:

The people I paint, are painted with as many curlicues as possible. Curlicue noses, ears, eyebrows, cheeks, chin, hair, and accessories. I would love to paint you, your friend, child, sister, aunt, etc., and portray them in my unique, Jules’ style…I see you smiling!

Flowers:

My flowers make great use of my imagination–they don’t exist in reality, and so my creative mind goes crazy. I name my flowers with regular people names, and give them people activities in the paintings’ titles. I guess you could say they are people dressed in flower suits doing every day activities…now that is thinking beyond the box!
