holly and berries

Why choose ART for Christmas-Gifting?

 

Church in the Pines

It’s personal.  Thoughtful.

It’s a treasure that says, “You are loved and specially thought of,” every time they look at it.

It will become a piece of your story…entwined with theirs…for as long as life.

 

This season…

put Heirloom on your Christmas list and

.

THINK… WONDER. 

Children around Holly Basket

Basketful of Merry For You”

black and white holly

Is there someone on your list who could use a              smile-evoke-r like this one to brighten their season on in to the new year?    (Contact me at pam.depoyan@gmail.com)

What this often wild toad’s ride of a world needs now is… WONDER  —  the kind of wonder often waiting (and waiting) for us in everyday, simple moments, but  rarely missed reveling in when we were children.

For Christmas reminds us… we’ve been created for AWE.

Who can resist the joyful awe in the candle-lit smiles of these apple-cheeked brothers and sister here in this piece (above), drawn from a real-life vintage snap!  No chore for these, gathering in their wondrous bundle of holly, all the more fun in such oversized basket! 

Merry wonder sparkles in their eyes,  in the bit of mischievous glee I think I spy passing between the littlest on the right and the end boy on the left (love that small guy’s grin!) – bridges across the decades to today… and lights their spirit of Christmas joy in me every time I see this image.   You too?  🙂

 

Little Girl Christmas Baking

“Mama’s Little Christmas Baker”

Who of us (or the children of our hearts) doesn’t have fond memories of finding wonder in the kitchen with Mom or GrandMom – especially at Holiday Time?  The miracle of putting in a pinch of this and a dash of that and coming out with an extravaganza of mouthwatering cookies of all shapes and sizes – the fun of joining in with “being one of the grownups” baking and putting together surprise bundles to giveaway…

Might this sweet portrait, hearkening back to those fun Good Housekeeping covers of the 30’s but every bit as much today

  • Enliven your Christmasey kitchen with a touch of vintage on modern? 
  • Or add a little winter time cheer to Grandma’ own?
  • Maybe sparkle on the wall of a promising little baker you know and love?

(Something about this little face reminds me of photos of myself at this age, as well as of a special young 4-yr old gal I am thinking of today!  🙂   And I love the 40’s style fridge so reminiscent of my own Grandma’s… the crisp white and cherry red that make me think snow and peppermint... )

 

“Stars in My Crown”

 

“On the Way to ‘Playing St. Nick’”

black and white holly

Christmas reminds us… We need to rekindle the kind of WONDER that charms and warms the heart and spirit…and turns our eyes to the miraculous just beyond our windows…

 

Girl with Bookby Window-Darker

“Caroler at the Window”

Have you ever noticed the warmth of decor in movie scenes set in English homes, both modern and quaint?  Maybe its the artist in me, but I’m always looking at the walls behind the actors, admiring the many pen and ink and pencil etchings inevitably there, the sweet-faced portraits of children of old, the inviting landscapes.  This portrait, to me, is quintessentially one of those — to bring a touch of that British accent charm to our homes…

As well as…A portrait that reminds us to quiet our hearts, turn off distractions, savor a good book…notice beauty…AND… listen for WONDER and Songs all around us…  A practice we all need to re-ignite in our lives — not just at Christmas — but each day!

This one also reminds me of one of my favorite of Christmas gifts —

ever a fresh new book!

  • Maybe a treasure for the book-lover in your family?  🙂

black and white holly

 

 

 

Christmas reminds us… as these portraits do… to be aware, lean into the majesty of One who walks with us, in everyday landscapes…

Church in the Snowy Woods

 “Beacon of Warmth in the Snowy Woods”

…Where in the space between work and to do lists and  commercial overload, He invites us to walk in that quiet, whispery, hush of soft fallen snow (if only in imagination transported by images like this one), to find yourself coming suddenly upon a welcoming door – waiting like an unexpected gift, a secret garden gate,  just for you.

 

Central Park Winter Lighter-with Words

“Central Park, By Wintry Light”

…Or sweeps you to places perhaps you have “visited” only by movie screen, entrances with light glow reflecting on snow-laced branches and flowing beneath charming stone bridges…  sparkles memories of similar places where you’ve walked beneath twinkling lights, reveled in a world bathed in candlelight…

 

New England Snow Village

“Snow Light over the Village”

…Stirs your spirit to that kind of pink glow that comes in of a morning dawn over a New England scene – when snow has tiptoed in overnight, like a ballerina with a magic wand…and clothed the world in a frock of white and rose gossamer…

 

Snow!…for Christmas Morn!”

…Lead us to breathe in the gifts He’s put before us in the here and now…

“Christmas at the Church in the Pines”

…And scent our life in evergreen…

black and white holly

 

 

 

Christmas reminds us… He has written the  wonder of expectant faith and believing upon our hearts, even from our youngest moments…

“Expecting Wonder”

 

“Shall we take just one peek?”

 

Miracle on 34th Street

“I Believe”

black and white holly

 

 

 

Christmas reminds us… the gift of carols  and praise mists our eyes with the wonder of His Presence, lifts our eyes to What Child Is This…

“Join We Now in Adoration”

 

“Carols in the Falling Snow”

 

black and white holly

 

Christmas reminds us…Imagination and dreams planted within our soul are to be shared…spilling out WONDER on our world…blessed to be a blessing…

 

“”Fit for an Angel”

…You can feel the wonder even in the anticipation of the big moment – chosen for Christmas angel!  The sun coming warmly through the chapel windows and spotlighting this child’s excitement, highlighting each face, setting the little white tree aglow, alighting on her gown…  

 

“Christmas Roses”

Dreams He’s placed within us bring a rich fragrance all their own!

 

“Sugar Plum Wonderland”

They make your spirit dance, making sugar plum fairies on delectable bakery window cakes come alive!  

 

“Figure-Skating Double”

 

“Snow on Snow”

Beautiful Doorways…Charming Gates…

  © Pam Depoyan… See something here you’d enjoy buying as a print? Inspired by these to order a custom Pen and Ink drawing of a beautiful entryway to your home or a place you love? Contact me at pam.depoyan@gmail.com

.

IN THE GALLERY ROOM:

There’s something that always speaks to me in the elegant or charming portico or entryway to a home. In picturesque gateways that invite us in to someone’s story just beyond. Or beckon us to discovering… like the door to The Secret Garden. Artwork for your home that leads you in along stone pathways to your own imaginings of the story beyond the scene, each time you look at it…

• Choose one of these prints to decorate a cozy wall in any room
• Custom order a design of your own entry
– use as a party invitation or housewarming announcement from your photos
Consider an illustration of a unique architectural detail to a spot in your home or garden
Encourage a friend with a gift of a such an illustration – entryways that speak of new doors opening to light and joy, a lovely church door signifying a new marriage or significant celebration, a hidden garden…

Home Portraits: With A Touch of Color

© Pam Depoyan… See something here you’d enjoy buying as a print? Inspired by these to order a custom Pen and Ink drawing specific to your life? Contact me at pam.depoyan@gmail.com

.

IN THE GALLERY ROOM:  I’ll tell you a secret:  Though I’m smitten with the frontispiece quality of classic black and white — sometimes as I study a house photo to draw, I can’t resist a pop of color.  The creamy pale yellow of a bungalow.   The sky blue of the shutters.   If not on the original, I may add it to a print… just to see. 

Other times, you, the client request that color touch.  I love to hear the role that color plays in your story behind the illustration, and to incorporate that  into the drawing for you.  The red door and shutters on the new widow’s home of so many family memories…  Or the red and white stripes of ‘Dad’s’ flag…  

Ideas:

  • Gift a print of one of these charmers to someone who loves renovating old homes (whether on hands or virtually via HGTV! 🙂 )
  • Decorate an office, home library wall or bookshelf with prints
  • Use prints of the blue shutter storybook drawing or the blue door and awning children’s shop (shown below) to decorate a child’s room
  • Commission your own home portrait with a pop of color!

An 1800’s home in Michigan when the spring Magnolia are in bloom.  :).  I did the original in black and white, (Compare with the original without color here:  Home Portraits: Classic In Black and White) but just thought I’d see what it looked like to add a bit of soft green or lavender pastel to a print…  A whole other mood… (Note: in person, the background is not so dark.  Scanning them here for you to see sometimes darkens the look here…)

Something about this one reminds me of a blustery day with Mary Poppins… it is really of a local a children’s clothing shop

This client asked me to incorporate her son’s love of lacrosse (See the lacrosse stick against the garage) and daughter’s soccer ball (up front)… preserving the stories of their family lives in this home as they prepared to move across country…  🙂  An endearing Norman Rockwell feel to this neighborhood….
