8 x 8 Oil on Archival Board

An adorable commission...One with very large ears and a mask like a bandit.  Blossom is the first commission I'm able to post because she was given at Thanksgiving with a companion painting.  I have one more I'm able to post and for the rest I have to wait until after Christmas.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Now on to Christmas!!

Bedford Farmland

8 x 8 Oil on Gessobord

I've been busily doing Holiday commissions and haven't been able to post any of them until after Christmas gift giving, so meanwhile here's an older painting that I have always loved.  Our Fall has been less than spectacular this year, but is still always my favorite season. 

This has been a wonderful commission season so far this year, and I am so thankful!  I've got 9 paintings drying and one on the easel.  If you'd like me to paint a commission of your animals, landscapes, etc., please get them to me by Thanksgiving.

Have a great weekend, Everyone!!
