                   Virginia Houston Art
Newfoundland paintings, prints, suncatchers, and books

The most praiseworthy form of painting is the one that most resembles what it imitates. ~Leonardo da Vinci


Welcome to my website where you can view a collection of  my art works from one-of-a kind Originals to Limited Edition prints, Art cards, Suncatchers and Books. Also, you will find prints and art cards of wildlife and pets.



If you have a favourite landscape or seascape, wildlife bird or animal, homestead or farm, street scene or building that holds a special place in your heart and would like to have it created as an original painting I can help you make that happen. Your artwork will bring cherished memories and endless value to generations for years to come.  I do accept commissions and will guarantee a very close likeness to your photo and will refund (minus the cost of shipping, canvas and other materials used in the painting) if not entirely satisfied. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your art product you may return it within 30 days from the date you receive it keeping in mind above charges.
