*Below are just a few are examples of the types of slates that I have done according to the customers specifications. Often a customer will give me some photos to work from or just some ideas of what they are looking for. After brainstorming with the customer, I'll design the slate and email a photo of it before the slate is shipped.
*Please email me with your thoughts , ideas and suggestions of how you would like your slate painted..
*If you would like any of the slates I have already painted but would like a different color, or a specific subject included jut let me know! I am more than willing to work with you to design the slate how you want it!
* Be assured that I will get your approval for the slate before shipping it! If there are any problems, they can be corrected!
This custom slate painting was requested by a customer who wanted to purchase a slate for her friend's gazebo to honor her parents memory. She wanted something to represent the "gates of heaven" and specifically requested flamingos.
I can also do a slate of your "homestead", farm, place of worship or favorite get-away, like the ones above. See my page on House Portraits
This slate is a Crock lid which a customer won at a raffle at the Delta Heritage festival in Delta, PA. This town is the location of several former slate quarries, in southeastern York county PA. Every year in October they have a festival to celebrate their heritage as a slate quarry town. The customer spins wool ( and often gives demonstrations at the fair) so she wanted me to paint her favorite things-sheep, her spinning wheel, and her favorite wild flower, thistle.
This customer wanted her favorite quote by Mark Twain painted on slate. After discussing it through email, I came up with the idea of combining it with an old world map, since the quote mentions travel around the globe
Whether it's wedding, Christmas, or a birthday, I can design a slate for you any time you need a gift.
