Velvet Green CreationsFine Art Paintings in Michigan's Upper Peninsula
Welcome to Velvet Green Creations website and the art of Chris, Gina & Jess Harman. We specialize in fine art paintings that include a myriad of subjects. Our inspiration comes from our natural environment found here in the UP. Our fine art paintings include: Wildlife Paintings, Frog & Amphibian Paintings, Whale Paintings, and Bird/Fowl Paintings — just to name a few. All of our original paintings are created on either canvas or Masonite board (unless otherwise noted). We will be producing videos to show our work in, "time-lapse" form on our YouTube Channel, "Chris and G". If you see a special piece of art that you are interested in, please do not hesitate to call us.

"We love God, family, home, nature, & Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Our artwork and children's books echo those primary building blocks to our life. We also bring those credentials to our video production, where we highlight our life in Michigan and beyond. We love adventure, learning and helping businesses grow." — Gina Harman
Wildlife Fine Art Paintings
Chris and I have each enjoyed painting many types of wildlife paintings throughout the years. Here is a special piece named, "Fighting Bucks
" that was given to a friend in 2010. These are the exciting types of wildlife that we love to focus on with our art. All of our paintings are created with an acrylic paint medium. We plan to paint many new pieces in the next few years with many goals to produce videos for each subject.♦ Wildlife Fine Art Paintings

Turkey, Birds & other Fowl
Spring Turkey, by Chris Harman is available and it is reminiscent of Chris's childhood in Michigan's Lower Peninsula. He often spent many days in the Mio, MI area visiting his grandmother, "Baba" during the hunting season. Great memories were made during these visits and special hunts with his father, friends and family. We plan to have more bird paintings in the future for you to consider. We do have two fine art bird prints available for purchase."I remember my times at Baba's just like it was yesterday. The Amish countryside throughout the Kittle Road area always had turkeys and other wildlife." — Chris Harman, Artist

Fine Art Prints
We have a number of Fine Art Prints available through Velvet Green Creations. These prints are on acid free paper and were printed with the finest of care. Featured here is, "Evening Grosbeaks" by Gina Harman. "The inspiration for this painting was during a visit to Mio, MI and spring was in the air. I was photographing these lovely birds and as pressed to close the shutter, the colorful mail grosbeak flew directly at me - causing me to tumble backwards down a small hill of snow." — Gina Harman
