Day 29 - A Pencil Pet Portrait Commission, and Special Offer!

"Sugar" (10x8, conte and pastel pencil) sold

Day 29 of my 30 Paintings in 30 Days of November!

Though this is a drawing, not a painting, it still counts! I've been really getting into the Christmas  rush of commissioned portrait orders this month, and have already done a few, so I figured I'd use this one from last year as a stand-in for today's post (and ok, also because I didn't quite have the time to finish a little pastel today!)

This cute little gal was one that I also painted with her human, Jasmine, last Christmas. See "Sugar and Jasmine" here!

I was happy they wanted me to draw Sugar alone too, because I loved this photo!

Thanks, and feel free to share!

Wow! I so rarely look back; it's interesting to see how my work has evolved over the years!

Day 24 of my 30 Paintings in 30 Days of November!

This swan was grooming herself by the edge of a path, on a zoo visit last year. Burst mode on a camera comes in very handy! I was able to catch a lovely swan s-pose!
