New Commission Request

photo unsplash.com I do take commissions periodically, depending upon the request being made. My youngest has given me a request that I cannot refuse.

Old Work

photo unsplash.com I have missed painting. I have not genuinely missed painting faces, or following along with someone else and creating their work--not even if it is my interpretation of their work.

Halloween Prompt Theme Announcement

You didn't think that I would skip my normal October rituals, now did you? Oh no. This year's theme took my youngest and me a bit of time to suss out. He had ideas.  Many ideas.  Lots of ideas.  Lots and lots of ideas. I had to weed through them, but we finally found a …
