With all the gray, dreary weather we've had lately here in Kansas City, I'm thankful for the bright dashes of color that the cardinals bring each winter. I recently captured one such bird in watercolor in my studio. It brings me joy and I hope it does the same for you.
I'm also sharing a recent custom pet portrait of a dear childhood friend's dog. Thanks to Dave Adkins for commissioning this painting of "Scout" as a Christmas present to himself. I've been busy painting other commissions, but I cannot post any of them as they are Christmas gifts and I don't want to spoil the surprise.
