"Sadie Belle," a commissioned portrait of a mixed breed dog, image roughly 5" x 6" on an 8" x 10" paper, done in acrylics, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may come to me.
Sadie found her family via the SPCA - they thought they wanted a lab mix, but she didn't have to work hard at all to get them to change their minds and open their hearts to a border collie-terrier mix.
This portrait is another gift (do you detect a trend here?). Yes I accept commissions, can work something up in secret, or deliver a gift certificate all on the sly. Email mefor the deets.
Thanks for supporting me and my dream of being a working artist,
P S End of school year: 2.5 days and counting. Start of vacation: 2.51 days and counting.

Take a Workshop
Yup, that's right - come learn alongside me. I'm going to be sitting front and center in Elizabeth St Hilaire Nelson's "Paper Paintings" collage workshop at ArtCenter Traverse City this coming August.
You've seen her work everywhere - she's won awards left and right and upside down (I stopped counting the number of times I've seen her in The Artists Magazine). And I've heard rumors that she is a "riot."
Elizabeth builds her art from hand painted papers collaged overtop a colorful underpainting on wood. This is a process she has evolved over the years into a distinctive method, a method that can be taken in a number of different directions with our own personal style and media.
It's a guaranteed good time - what's not to love about painting and collaging and built in entertainment?

See you there!!
