Whoa! Happy New Year!

January 1, 2013

How exactly did it get to be 2013?!  I’m still playing mad catch up from 2012.  (The year that will go down in my personal history as “the one that got away”) I hesitate to make it an official resolution, perhaps rather a goal, but I’m shooting to keep you all MUCH more up-to-date this year.  Here’s a peek at some of the Christmas commissions that couldn’t be posted until the New Year…many, many more to come!

a lovely wedding gift…

What better way to celebrate the start of a marriage, than with a pen & ink of the couples first home?  The mother and father of the bride commissioned this piece, and they were such a great couple to work with, especially considering the day we met for photos it decided to pour down rain…

A beautiful home, but tricky to  photograph…

a rough pencil sketch for approval…a little editing was in order for a clean view.

And here’s the final ink.  I hope the Bride & Groom enjoy it!  I’ve met a few couples along the way that have commissioned pen & inks of all the homes they’ve lived in.  I wish I had documented some of our childhood homes.  They make such a lovely gallery.
