"Phia," painted sketch, image roughly 7" x 6" on a 9" x 12" page, commissioned portrait of a Doberman Pinscher. This portrait is sold and I offer a very limited number of painted sketches each year, but inquiries may always come my way.
Welcome to Summer!
School let out and we bolted for the hills! Irish Hills, that is!
We spent a wonderful long weekend with the Kelly clan, fishing, boating, swimming, toad hunting, balloon animal making, feasting, pictionary-ing, playing volleyball and whiffle ball, toasting smores around the campfire, and generally making the sorts of memories that will be cherished a long, long time.
Meanwhile, I'm adjusting to my summer schedule - starting the day out with a few household things, spending my afternoons with the kids, and whiling away late nights in the studio. I love being able to sleep in, take the dog swimming in the creek, and relax with The Caped Crusader and The Princess. I know they'll be leaving the nest in the blink of an eye, and I want to make the most of every day we've got this summer.
Today was a lazy one. Waffles and steaks, a little Netflix and some yardwork. Not sure what's on their agenda for tomorrow - maybe we'll bake or go to the library. It's nice to have a clean slate, every day!
Hope you are enjoying your summer as well!
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork,
