New Year, New Art!

Happy New Year,  readers! Things are settling in after the holidays, and I'm looking forward to a 2012 filled with lots more artwork, photos, gardening exploits etc. I'm planning some nice projects for the spring - more about that to come in the next few months. I may have to expand this blog to include remodeling forays as well; there's always a lot to be done in an old house!

Here's a pet portrait I created last month for a client who commissioned it to give to her friend as a Christmas present; it's a portrait of his beloved standard poodle, Duke. Pastels were the medium I used this time around; I felt they would best represent the texture of Duke's fluffy poodle fur. I had a blast creating it. Hope you like it!
