7"x5" oil on textured panel
Every once in awhile I will do a requested piece. This is different from a commission really because there is no money exchanged unless the requestOR likes it...that is what happened with "Beary Close". A friend who loved the moose I did a month or so ago wanted a bear that was similar in feel...THUS this beary close up version of a bear! Even though he is already sold, I did put him in my FINE ART AMERICA shop! I created a frame as per her request...so, he's all dressed up and ready to go home!
semi completed painting
I've also played around with a frame I made for "SunKissed"...the white was nice, but the distressed grey seemed just right!
AND, it's been awhile since I bragged on my family...I just got a kick out of this sweet photo of my grandson Paxton at the butterfly pavillion...he is SO gentle and curious...what a lovely thing to see...the wonder of a child!
and on we go!
