“Happy New Year”

Photo by NordWood Themes on Unsplash New year, new you. At least that is what is supposed to happen right? I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with New Year’s. I hate the idea of resolutions because most of us don’t stick with them. We have great ideas and want to do this or that, but…

The Things we Dread

Yes, I know, how could I post a picture of a gorgeous horse like Nine Pieces of Eight and talk about dread? (Yes, the photo is mine!) I’m sure some might have been missing the art as of late. In some ways, I have been too. The things we dread are often created in our…

“Banks”

So, yea. I haven’t had the chance to get another 100 piece done because I’ve been painting fur! This is Banks. He was commissioned by his mom to have his adorable, yet regal, portrait done! I just have to say, fur looks easy to paint….but striped fur is crazy tedious!! Now that I’m on his…
