I have finally finished the last commission, and have decided this year, there is a good chance I will not open commissions as a new project has taken a hold of my creative heart. This is the commission I was working on, and since it is now at the home of the recipient, and they … Continue reading Happy Change of Plans
Well it’s been a minute, hasn’t it? The past few months have been a whirlwind, between the pandemic, my new job site, and my own illness, I’m so glad 2020 is done.
