"Bensen" oil on canvas
The last few months my studio time has been spent on commissions. pet portraits have been the focus. The painting is a totally different approach than my personal work and there is something freeing in that. I enjoy the focus and certainty that the pet portraits take. But the best part is the joy that it brings to people, especially when they are given as gifts.
I haven't ever properly marketed this aspect of my artistic life, knowing that I need to have more studio time to keep up with the actual demand. So this year it'll be in full force, Etsy and all.
