ART: commissioned card and painting

I only have a minute  but I feel guilty not posting on here in so long.  Shame on me because I am not lacking in news!

First up is a card requested by my dear Mother for my niece Sydney.  Sydney's dog Abbey loved her tennis balls.  FANATICALLY SO.  This is oil pencil on recycled kraft card stock.

Interested in a custom greeting card?  We can customize one of my original designs or create something brand spanking new.  They come in several different sizes.  Email me!

And here you can sneak a peek at a commissioned piece that was a long time in the making.  Canvases were torn and for the first time I ever I got about 2/3 of the way through a piece and completely changed my my mind on what I thought would look best.  I am very happy with how it turned out!  The client chose the background from a earlier piece and at first I thought it would be too much and distract from the gorgeous coloring of her pets but I was wrong and she was very very right!  Here is a quick pic I took as it sat inside my truck to be delivered later that same day!

Check back tomorrow for a peek at even more new pieces and news on upcoming events.  Like the Humane Society of Chittenden County's Walk for the Animals on the Waterfront this coming weekend.  This event will kick off an auction that includes five brand new YellowDog Art pieces made just for the event.  Oops, make that four.  One kind of found a new forever home a little early.  It was too perfect a match to wait!  Hi Kim and Chad  : )    50% of the proceeds from each painting auctioned off will go directly back to the HSCC!
