Winnie The Pooh

"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." Winnie The Pooh.

An especially poignant life sitting this week via my palette knife. Art helped me through a very sad week.

Surf's Up!

Dare I say, there is something 'kinda' rad about being asked to put your portrait 'technique' onto a surfboard. I wasn't entirely sure how to proceed as I hadn't done this before but I sure worked it out. It was something I really enjoyed the challenge of working out how surfboards work; how to de wax them, prepare the ground for paint, and then get that paint to stick. The client loves them, a gift for her avid surfer husband on a favorite board of his that broke.  So hang loose y'all. You can do anything you set your mind to.
