Barbara's Jennifer

Finally, I have Barbara's painting ready to post! Miss Barbie, my pioneer of patience, I am so so grateful to this lovely lady! Barbara also commissioned the charcoal of Tierra a while back. The girls and I had a great time visiting when we dropped of her painting. For some reason or other that I can't seem to put my finger on, this painting was terribly difficult for me. And now that I'm finished, I'm on to an exciting project for my Grandma. Here's to finishing that pronto! ;) Anyhoo, here it is! Thank you again and again, Barbara! :)

This is Bear. Don't you love those sweet, sad eyes? I think there's something about painting animals that's very therapeutic for me. I don't think I had a moment of frustration while working on this one. Thanks to Miss Debbie for allowing me to paint her sweet friend. We'll see you over the Rainbow Bridge, Bear. :)

Eric, Kelly, and the Sopranos!

The best part about doing this is meeting a client after weeks of email correspondence and exchanging hugs instead of handshakes. Kelly was so great to work with and it was so wonderful to meet her. My daughter was enchanted, as well, and asked me if she could come with us to the mall! :)

As far as the painting, this has been one of the most exciting I've done. Never seen The Sopranos, so I learned quite a bit! It was fun incorporating all the little details about Kelly and Eric and the show. And that leopard print dress was great fun!

Thank you so much, Kelly! And hope Eric had a fantastic birthday!

9x12" Sharpie

This drawing was actually quite a challenge. But I really enjoyed it and I think it turned out very nice. Also, G (we'll call him G) was such a pleasure to work with. I hope he and his wife have a lovely anniversary! :)
