11″x14″ Acrylic & Oil Wash on Patterned Paper and Illustration Board

Still working on Vayda’s card for 08…I’ve become totally OCD about color comps…and just can’t seem to make up my mind.  I’ll probably paint enough to have Christmas cards for the next 10 years!

a full plate…

I knew I should have started that Vayda-Christmas card illustration a few weeks ago!  Things are really heating up around here.  3 pen & inks, 3 pet portraits, a new mural in the works, and the SMB is less than a week away.  YIKES!  So you can imagine, the slew of lists floating around the studio…tacked to the fridge, sticky-notes on the computer monitor, and a mopey dog…(if it wasn’t football season, I’d be adding a neglected fiance to that list.)  Oh and for those of you so patiently waiting for the final pics of the Pirate’s House Mural…we’re in the process of tweaking a bit here and there…so I’d rather wait to post until the top coat is on and it is 110% complete!  Thanks for your patience! Oh yeah…and if you’re thinking that this is the year you’re finally going to commission the custom pen & ink drawing of your home or garden…now’s the time to get on the list!

Whew!  One of these days I’ll have time to plan a wedding!
