Currently On The Easel

One Painting Done And Hung

I need to take some pictures of my completed Sedna painting to post here. I used to have some 'during' photos up on my Instagram, but you may have noticed that I no longer have any photos published on that platform anymore.

New Commission Request

He refuses to sleep in his own room due to monsters. Monsters at the window. Monsters in the closet. Monsters under the bed. No amount of monster spray soothes him. No …

Well, There Goes All My Canvas

photo unsplash.com So, my youngest is eight years old. He can be absolutely full of the gimmes and the I-wants. If you have kids, you know what I mean.
