Welcoming work in the new year!

The studio is really buzzing. In addition to accepting commissions for 2015, I have finally gotten my long awaited breed paintings project underway. It’s really fun. First, because I’ve been going through really old photos from pet portrait treat jars™ I’ve painted in the past, and I’ve actually found some awesome faces I’d totally forgotten about. Like these two:

i’ve got some events lined up for the spring, which I’ll post so you don’t miss anything, and I’ve also got a posthumous portrait I’m still working on of Roman for “SAVE THE CHIMPS” which will hopefully raise good money for them at auction. This is handsome Roman. He was a favorite at Save the Chimps and passed away in 2014 at the Save the Chimps Sanctuary.
