Mondays are how my personalized gifts got started. My good friend Lee Monday got married, and I wanted to do something unique and special for him and his bride. So I thought something to remind them of their wedding vows every time they looked at this gift. Being a contemporary Sedona artist, I painted this original watercolor “Mondays” for them. Creating a sign next to the front door with their name “Mondays.” I then framed this southwest New Mexico landscape wall art for them and gave it to them at their wedding. They were utterly thrilled to have their name/wedding date in this watercolor.
Discover Personalized Canvas Prints
It seems that when someone wants one of my canvas prints or personalized wall art, they find my website. The cool part is that I have a great time when I’m in my creative mode, which is where I’m happiest. It seems weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays are the big 3 for personalizations. Next comes personalized gifts from employers, honoring their employees for their service and accomplishments. I’ve received many photos from the recipients standing next to the customized wall art. Also of where they’ve placed the art and shaking hands while holding their exceptional gift. Companies love having their specialized logo in the painting.
My inspiration came from a gallery shop that I used as a reference located on famed Canyon Road. What I love about this wall art that I’ve created is the stucco appearance with the cool shadows and vines hanging low over the turquoise wooden doors. Mondays are just one of many galleries on Canyon Rd. Out of hundreds of galleries, in the heart of Santa Fe. Zoned strictly for “residential arts and crafts,” you will find Spanish colonial, Spanish/Pueblo, and American territorial architecture here. Santa Fe is not far from Taos, N.M.

Sedona Landscape Paintings
While I love painting with watercolors, my current love is using acrylics, both heavy body, and liquid acrylics. Creating contemporary Sedona landscape paintings and any form of Sedona art is my current direction.
