Here is a Christmas commission that I can post  -  It was the client's suggestion to use a black background and at first I didn't think it was a very good idea, but now that I see the finished painting, I rather like it…. going try more like this.

Busy Busy!!

I have been working away on Christmas commissions. Unfortunately, I can't show you any, but I can show you a detail of one. 

My new calendar is dedicated to my sweet studio pup, Chumley. I decided to honor him after having a very close call with HGI, an intestinal disorder spawned from some holiday ham. After several hundred dollars, lots of meds and a very disoriented pup, Chummers came out of it despite the dire prognosis. 

Moral of the story... never, ever give pets holiday ham! I have learned my lesson. Unfortunately, Chummers has no regrets and would do it all over again to enjoy some sweet holiday honey baked ham....
I kinda get it :)

Here is the link for the Chumley calendar:
