Commissioned Paintings

In addition to the original acrylic and watercolor paintings available in the Art by Megan shop, customers can commission their own, original work based on a photograph.  These kinds of paintings are popular when one wants to recreate moments in nature that are beautiful or preserve a moment in time, based on a special memory.

New in Art by Megan’s shop…

24x24 original acrylic on canvas

This week, the Art by Megan shop is officially up and running (smoothly, thanks to Bent Circle Inc!).  The newest painting, “Still” has been added and several more paintings are on their way! However, I have heard from a lot of people that owning original artwork is not feasible because of the cost (I am […]

Painting for a cause…

20130609-190340.jpg

One of the perfect combinations in life for me is being able to share my talents for a good cause. This past weekend, I was able to do just that. We spent the afternoon at a silent auction / happy hour with a childhood friend of mine who recently lost her mother to Ovarian Cancer. […]

So far, I am in love! […]

However, something magical happened while I worked on the sunset-inspired abstraction and it turned out ok! I feel […]

Selling art and taking names…

I love painting. I could spend days on end painting (especially if these days were spent on the beach, but I digress). But selling my paintings is a whole different barrel of crazy monkeys. Somedays I think of just painting forever and then leaving “undiscovered art” for my children to discover and make millions from. […]

Picturing a painting…

When I work on a painting, I often have a hard time visualizing how it could look in someone’s house. But, thanks to some awesome friends who have recently purchased paintings, I have a better idea! Thanks for the support of Art by Megan!

New @ Art by Megan!

My Etsy Shop is expanding this year to include some exciting new things and I wanted to share! First, I have been working on paintings with poems and lyrics done in India ink. I use India ink in all my other paintings to draw on top of the paintings, so I figured using it to […]
