This first painting was a sweet commission of two sisters for their dad. I did the piece in sort of an Edwardian “Downton Abbey” period look in the English countryside. Both girls have flowers that have special meaning to the family. It was a lot of fun to create and I hear it was a hit with the family! I also had some prints made of the piece (which I am happy to do with any commission as long as the piece translates well to a print!) that was given to grandparents.
This second piece was a fun project I thought up as a gift for our church rector. She has a corgi that she brings to work with her every day, and so I decided I should try my hand at painting a corgi! And not just any corgi, but a priestly corgi 😉 I think he turned out pretty well, I wonder what Tasha Tudor would think?
I am happy to report that I am starting 2013 with a few new commissions, one of which I just finished last night that I think turned out really well! I am excited to see what new art this new year brings. Something about the new year always brings such excitement and an urge to do better.
I’ll have more to show you soon!~!
