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!

Last year he got this one…(the original, of course)…this year a little something to remind him of his 3 months in Central America.

He may be the last to post, but he was the first of four French Bulldog commissions to come my way this year.  Just look at those ears!  I absolutely adore him!

December 15, 2009

and doing quite well, thanks to many of you who have spread the word about my work, and kept me working like mad this Holiday Season.  I sooooo cannot wait until after Christmas when I can finally debut all the Pet Portraits, and Custom Inks that have come my way…I even picked up a charcoal drawing on a whim, and rather enjoyed getting back to my  roots for a few days.  Things are starting to wind down, only 1/2 a sketch left to complete, and then it’s time to focus on family, friends, and all the things I’ve missed so dearly during these hectic few months.  Oh and I managed to squeeze in a little time to whip up a Vayda Christmas card!  Although, I’ll wait just a few more days before posting, to ensure a proper surprise to many by snail-mail.

Anyhoo, just checking in!  Hugs~

right on target…

Maybe I’m speaking too soon…but sometimes things seem to align just right.  I’ve only got two coats of oil wash, but already the color is just as I had planned.

In other news, talented artista and web promo maven,  Robin Lynne, has got me all wrapped up in a new site.  Made By Hand. BY ME, is a free place to promote your wares and network with other artists.  The site even offers a “spotlight” feature similar to etsy’s treasury concept, except that I don’t have to do math for three hours to find out when one will become available.  It’s a fresh site on the scene, with real potential to grow.  If you’re looking to reach a broader market and like free promo, CHECK IT OUT!
