I’m just taking a space to promote my boyfriend’s new website: The Galleria — Custom Paintings by Mike Galle

Mike is taking on commissions for customized paintings of pets, landscapes, and fantasy-themes based on photographs or based on the imaginative ideas of potential customers. He has already done portraits of my late dog, Satch, and of the cats belonging to close friends — he used two separate photographs to create the one image of the cats together. He recently sold a painting of a Prince Edward Island scene (Point Prim) — this is the one featuring the lighthouse on the website.

Please explore this site, and pass it on — I think these are excellent gift ideas.
