God Bless Us Every One!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
from our hearth to yours.

God bless us every one!

I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach.

Commission Works

I've been catching up on commissioned artworks, now that I'm post-black butterfly exhibition. Here are two of the most recent, both in pastel, and another commissioned drawing with Guinness wash is in the works. It's always a grace to work on something special for a patron, it's even more rewarding if they are pleased with the results, which is the case with each of these.

I've also been busy with shows the past few months, selling a few things, and 2 group shows coming up in January.
