Welcome and thanks for visiting,
This site offers original paintings as well as the ability to custom order prints at a range of prices.  Even though the originals go quickly, you can now order nearly any piece as a print, customize the framing, size and matting, and it will be shipped directly to you.  

Please feel free to reach out via the Contact Page to send me a note, share your thoughts about a particular piece, inquire about commissions or simply say hi. I will be posting new pieces periodically, so feel free to poke around and come back to see what's new.   
- Sandy Gerding

I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I enjoy creating them. My intent is for the combination of vibrant colors, organic imagery and abstract shapes evoke the pleasure of connecting to natural elements like water, minerals, stones, wood, petals, skin, weather, etc. These contemporary works are inspired by the natural world using form, line, depth, light and layering in pursuit of a feeling of joy, a sense of renewal, satisfaction or discovery.
