Over the past week I have been gearing up my zazzle store with items for mother’s day.  This variation of this design,  originally intended for use on custom envelopes to match some custom stationery I created, looks great on many Mother’s day gifts, with the slogan “Best Mum EVER!” (and would work equally well as gifts for mothering sunday)

These coasters say you love mom in word and deed (since once she has them,  you’ll be sure to not leave water rings on her furniture 😉 )

These necklaces for mom are also available as round pendants.

these great mother’s day shirts also have cute matching “I’ve got THE Best Mum EVER!” shirts for baby (and older kids too).

This is a bit off the beaten path for me, but I thought it made a cute dog sweater for a mommy dog.

Several years ago, when we were returning from a family vacation, I snapped some photos of a beautiful sunset through the passenger window of our car. We were traveling along HWY 97 and HWY 26 from the Bend area to the vicinity of Portland, Oregon. What attracted me in this particular shot was the rhythmic patterns of the sprinklers in foreground. If memory serves correctly, the sprinklers were watering a crop of fragrant mint. As the many row of sprinklers each moved back and forth in unison, the sunset lights up layers of clouds above a beautiful view of a broad expanse of the cascade mountains. I think the tallest may be Broken Top, although I am not entirely sure.
I did end up editing this photo by removing some of the part closer to the car which were blurred because we were still in motion, as well as removing evidence of the car window from the shot and adjusting some of the lighting and colors. I have another version where I left the coloring closer to the original photo, which I will be posting later.

Today I finally finished the drawing for a Christmas card design I  started on 3 Christmases ago.  Originally I was going to do what most greeting card companies suggest and cut paper and use that technique to keep the design simple. I even had some brown paper that was just the right color for the camels that I wanted on my card.  So after going to Wetcanvas.com and checked their free reference photo library to refresh my mind on what a camel REALLY looks like, I turned the computer off and got to work drawing some camels on my brown paper and cutting them out with an Exacto knife. The camels turned out really well and there was even one who looked particularly spunky and happy to be traveling to Bethlehem. doing the paper cut outs did help with the composition, because it was then just an easy matter of placing one overlapping the other instead of trying to figure out where one would end and the other begin while I was drawing them. By the time I had gotten the Christmas star as well as some other stars cut out, in addition to my camels, some wise men, the manger, and a concept sketch for Mary and Joseph cut out I decided what I really wanted to do was to PAINT the card rather than work with paper cut outs.  In retrospect I wish I had stayed with the original concept instead of changing in mid stream, because I would have been done a long time ago. It created a lot of extra work to have to trace the things I had already cut out onto another piece of paper.  Then I started a long and tedious process of  drawing on tracing paper  and then tracing what I had drawn onto some heavy duty art paper after having cut it and arranged it in the composition I wanted.  Another thing I wish I had done a little differently would be to make the original drawing larger than the card and then just use the computer to shrink it down. Of course that might just encourage me to add even more detail and make things even more complicated ;/

I love the composition in this card. What I was really going for was the “perfect” Christmas card–something that perfectly expressed my feelings and sentiments about the meaning of Christmas, rather than some of the shallower, albeit fun Christmas messages out there. So in the center of this design is a heart with the Christmas star centered above it and piercing downward into it. Then moving around clockwise like a Mandela three little stars seem to dance in with joy in the night sky with the desire to follow the three wise men to Bethlehem. The three wisemen and their camels curve around the heart , hugging it closely on their journey to see the newborn king. Even one of the camels cannot contain his joy has as with a merry face he saunters jauntily along. Beyond the caravan a shepherd kneels with his sheep in adoration of the Christ Child. The infant Jesus smiles in his sleep in the manger as Joseph lovingly supports a weary, but joyful, Mary on his shoulder.  Moving upward around the second half of the heart, the composition then moves through some of the important events of Christ’s life.  We see the sea of Galilee where the apostles on their ship watch in awe as Christ walks toward them on the water. Next we follow a path past the house where the bedridden man is let down through the roof so that Jesus can heal him. The road continues on towards the mount where the multitude listens to Him teaching the Beatitudes. Next is a portrayal Him pleading with his Father in the Garden of Gethsemane. Beyond the Cross the Resurrected Lord is met by Mary at the tomb.

Right now this is simply a line drawing, but by this time next year I plan on having a full color version available for sale. For now, this design is also available on a variety of other zazzle products. Within the next couple days it will also be available as a print and greeting card on both Imagekind and RedBubble. (*UPDATE* now on fineartamerica too)

The morning sun shining through the forest creates spectacular lighting effects. Lens flare and light orbs floating in the air with sun rays shining visibly through the trees produce an ethereal glow in the Rainier, Oregon woods.

One of the things I got done last week was to create a series of product using my photo, Forest Sun Rays in the Snow #32. A snow covered branch creates an arch, with ferns hanging from its moss covered bark, across a tree lined path toward the summit of this hill in the woods of Rainier Oregon. Beyond the forest the sky shines crystal blue in the early morning light.

Last week I used this photo to make some new products on zazzle. This is one of my favorite photos –I love how as the early morning sun bursts through the trees, illuminating the forest with its heavenly glow, silhouettes of branches and leaves create a semblance of a stained glass window. It also reminded me this last week a bit of the Christmas star, so I thought it would make a nice photo card for Christmas.

Michael at the Waterpump, water-soluble oils on gessoed paper, 11 1/16″ x 15 1/16″, 2001. Intellectual property of Dawna Morton. All rights reserved. Do not copy in any form. At a scenic campsite in the forested hills surrounding Oakridge, Oregon, a child and his mother discover the joy of an old-fashioned red water pump after feasting on huckleberries. Poised in mid-stroke of the pump the mother’s figure is bathed half in sunlight and half in dappled shadow with a sense of continuing motion. As the crystal clear mountain water cascades from the spout Michael washed the huckleberry stains from his tiny fingers in joy and wonderment. Surrounding this nostalgic scene is an array of pacific northwest foliage and trees rendered in impressionistic strokes.

I recently created many product on zazzle.com featuring this nostalgic painting. Here is one of several fridge magnets which would make a great inexpensive mother’s day gift or just an everyday expression of appreciation.

Also available is this clear frosted glass mug, perfect for anything frosty cold or piping hot. See your drink peeking through photos, images, or text designs. Dishwasher and microwave safe. Imported.  This design is also available on other mug styles, colors, and sizes. Feel free to customize the text with your own unique message for your mom or other loved one.

Here is the default message I have designed on the left hand side of the mug. It says “Sometimes the simple things bring the greatest joy… Happy Mother’s Day to a great mom!” I think it’s a pretty great message, but you may like something else better. So if you’d like to change the inscription for someone besides your mom and have it say happy mother’s day to a wonderful grandma, or aunt, of wife or even change it so it is for another occasion like the birth of a child or something else, go ahead…


I also designed this bumper sticker as a souvenir for those of us who love to the beautiful small town of Oakridge, Oregon–or it can be customized for another small rural town of your choosing 😉
on the inside the card reads:
“sometimes the simple things bring the most joy…
thanks for all the special moments filled with magic and wonder!”
Next is this earth friendly, economical, and stylish reusable shopping bag featuring my painting. It is also customizable  and available in other colors and styles.
Below are two stamps featuring Michael at the Waterpump. You can mail that special note or card with class and style…
