Tomorrow is the last day to get your custom pet portraits commissioned in time for Christmas.  If you miss the deadline, I’m happy to issue a gift certificate to redeem after the dust settles a bit.  Hope you’re all enjoying the festive season so far!

Sometimes a personal connection with a subject makes it incredibly hard to capture in a truly representational form.  My brain tells me “I know what that cat looks like”…my brush listens to my brain instead of trusting my eyes, and the next thing you know,  you don’t even recognize the work in front of you. Thankfully, I took this one slow…adding a wash here, a wash there…I knew at some point it would speak to me, and it did.

Studio Overhaul…

February 22, 2010

After living here for the last 8 months or so, It’s about time I got this studio in working order…Bulletin boards and calendars are pretty well useless if not hanging on the walls.  So this weekend, I painted the studio a fresh February Frost color.  Something punchy to get me motivated.  Here’s a sneak peek…I still have a long way to go, but I think my Blushing Mona will fit right in.

Wishing you all a lovely Monday ~ xo
