Moments  in Time 


Moments  in Time Paintings

Thank you for dropping by my website. I'm excited to sit down together on Zoom or in person and discuss your options to bring your one of a kind commission to life! The sky is the limit. Any idea, any size is possible. All quotes reflect the specifications you bring to the project.

We take hundreds of photos and store them on our phone, trying to capture an emotion we've felt at one time. And then we rarely look back on them. Why not share that special moment with your family and friends, through an original painting. I will create a keepsake that you can hang in your home or give as a gift to a loved one. A precious piece that will fill you with joy each time you view it.

commission painting horse

Pearl and Jimmy

Oil on canvas board 11" x 14"

...When my dear friend Pearl showed me a b&w photo of herself and her beloved horse Jimmy, from the 1940s, I wanted to memorialize that moment in time for her in a special way. 

I immediately thought of Nanci.  I just knew she would capture the emotions, nostalgia and depth of the relationship between this young prairie woman and her horse.


The painting arrived safely, carefully wrapped for its journey from Ontario to the west coast.  I was simply thrilled and awestruck by the painting.  It was exactly as I expected and more.  The painting  was glowing with life and cannot do justice against seeing the real thing in person.


Nanci works intuitively and follows her creative instincts.  Her skill with colour blending and brushwork Is beautiful ...combined with her natural eye for composition and perspective,  and her own depth of emotion, she brings a sense of deep spirit and reverence to her work that has a spark of divine essence behind it.  -  Louise Whyte

Horse commission painting by Nanci Miranda

Original Commission

"Intimacy" 36" x 36"

 created for a ocean front beach house in PEI. Inspired by Sable Horses and the relationship between my client and her late husband. Watercolour graphite on paper.

... "I commissioned Nanci Miranda to do two works of art for me, both were from photographs of dogs. She captured both animals 100% and I will treasure them forever. 

She is now working on a drawing of Sable Island Horses for me which I am really looking forward to seeing.

Once Nanci is given a commission she works in a very timely fashion and updates you as she works. I will certainly have Nanci do other works of art for me in the future. She is a very talented artist." -  Mary C
