Here are best friends Finn and Nick wearing their matching green plaid jackets and booties while sitting on a snow covered bench by the Alice in Wonderland statue in Central Park, NYC. This was a particularly charming painting as it was commissioned by a daughter for her parents, who had previously commissioned portraits of their daughter's dogs some years prior...a reciprocal gift of love.
My favorite time of year...a fresh start...new beginnings!
With that sentiment I am hopeful to shed the old and begin anew by clearing out my studio, storing many incomplete classical paintings and Little Gems in the back of my closet, and turn my attention to my long awaited new direction consisting of larger, fresher floral paintings! The first on my easel in this peaceful quietude of January will be a large 24x30 of pink and white peonies in a crystal tumbler on lace especially for my Mother. Keep checking back as I'll post sneak peeks here periodically.
Happy New Year and May All Your Dreams Come True!
