Christmas Commissions part 1

"Bensen" oil on canvas

The last few months my studio time has been spent on commissions.  pet portraits have been the focus.  The painting is a totally different approach than my personal work and there is something freeing in that.  I enjoy the focus and certainty that the pet portraits take. But the best part is the joy that it brings to people, especially when they are given as gifts.

I haven't ever properly marketed this aspect of my artistic life, knowing that I need to have more studio time to keep up with the actual demand.  So this year it'll be in full force, Etsy and all.
