So today, sadly, we cut down the tree in our front yard. It was sad to see it go, even if it did endlessly drop little prickly things on us. J hung a swing from it years ago on fathers day, so that was probably the hardest part for the kids. It put the image [...]

Many of the paintings I do are given as gifts. Here is a piece I did a little while ago for a grandpa. They both love baseball and playing catch. I really liked how it turned out.

We pretty much had a nice lazy day around here. I got a lot of work done, though, while the kids hung out in their jammies most of the day. Here is a custom portrait I did a little bit ago for a cute family in New Zealand.
