PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS - Our aim is to produce a keepsake that you will treasure for many years to come. One of the most important things in Commissioned Art are good photographs.


LEVELS - Take the photo at eye level. Photos looking down at, or up at, are artistically unappealing to the eye. The best angles of the photo depend on the art that you purchased. Example: if you are purchasing a side view please send us a profile pose of the person you want painted. We offer a variety of Customized Art. Please snap your photo shot accordingly. 


Memorial Pictures: If this is a memorial pose please pick from good quality photos that are at the same age that you wish to portray your loved one in the painting. Dee handles the memorial portraits very honorably. She often prays for you and your family during the process of her painting. May you experience the Peace that passes all understanding as you search for the perfect photo…


QUALITY - The more detail in the photo the better your painting will be. This is especially important for your loved ones features to be portrayed. The photo must be sharp and in focus. The artist is unable to work from blurry photos. Sadly We have had to turn away business due to distorted pictures.


LIGHTING - Please take your photo in natural light, preferably outdoors. The best photos are taken on a bright overcast day, but not in direct sunlight. NEVER use the flash option. Flash causes a number of problems for the artist. Flash masks out a lot of detail, casts unnatural shadows, devalues color, and may causes the dreaded red-eye monster effect.

This Artwork depicts Jesus asking you a question. "Are You Ready"? Painted and written by Dee Jones

“Are You Ready?” Painted and written by Dee Jones 


The Lord is inviting us to join Him for a revelational but personal conversation. “Are You Ready”


Looking ahead is always an interesting exercise. When we stand facing a new opportunity sometimes we still feel the tension, the stress, and the scar tissue of the past. We wonder if we are brave enough to face our true purpose and calling. Many of us often doubt ourselves. Rather than get overwhelmed by the huge path that lies before us. The Lord wants you to know that He will be with you every step of the way. The important thing is to recognize Him, when He is guiding you.



Could it be the unasked questions of our purpose that trip us up the most? Questions that start a dialog with the Lord are always welcome to Him. After all prayer was meant to be a two way thoroughfare. If the quote, “My sheep hear my voice” has a ring to it? Take time to ask the Lord questions. Questions engage us in the process of understanding. They help us to visualize how to get there. Questions create a place for us to explore and discover the next part of our story and journey in your relationship with Him.


The Lord knows the plans that He has for us, to give hope and a future and a big expectation. Jeremiah 29.11 The Lord works with who we are now, and how we will travel with him. The whole concept is that he wants you to acknowledge that He is here to help in your future growth.


 Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic. The Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will never fail you or abandon you.  Duet. 31:6 


Negative emotion and thinking must be banished from our midst. His presence constantly reminds us to stay close to His direction. He will lead you every step of the way. He has already gone ahead. He has seen all the provision that you will need. I will teach you how to stand on the  promises that I have already given you. 


We have entered into a New Era. This is an Era of new beginnings, Step out! Call upon the Lord, and He will show you great and mighty things. Jeremiah 33:3 He sees your 



~your Promises

~and your Potential! 


Relax He is not calling you to be like someone else. The good news is that He knows you inside and out, He only wants you to be you! When you discover who you really are in Him, you will never want to be like anyone else. As you recognize who you are in the Lord, He will increase your strength and your courage. 


Are you Ready? Take that first step ask the Lord what He is seeing?
