Happy Holidays everyone! I have been hard at work on quite a few holiday commissions so, unfortunately, I haven't been able to share most of what I've been working on through social media. However, here are a few of the pieces I've finished that I can share.
Top Left: "Did You Say Cheese?" I mean, how can you not fall in love with this pug's wrinkly grin? Top Right: I painted this "Wonky Donkey" as a fun, loose study in between commission orders. When I posted it to social media though, I got so much positive feedback I decided to have it professionally photographed, and paper and metal prints are now available. The original is also still available.
Bottom Left: This loveable English Lab's name is Dan Brown. His parents sent me his portrait one day when I was looking for inspiration. I just had to paint him, and then his family just had to have the original. I'm always looking for inspiration because I have to have originals in my studio and at local shops. So if you've got a great shot of your pet, send it my way. If I choose to paint him, you'll get the first opportunity to purchase the original. Bottom Right: I painted sweet Nari as part of a donation I made to the Taste of Compassion silent auction benefitting the Asheville Human Society. Her family bid and won the commission as a birthday present for one of Nari's owners. I love finding ways to give back to the community through my art.
