I am so moved by all the early subscribers to my Patreon! You guys rock <3FYI for the rest of you, 13 of the 30 Patreon exclusive 5 x 7 prints of "She Warms My Heart" have already been claimed! Only 17 more people will get them. They are signed and numbered. Head on over to my Patreon to find out how to get yours <3

About the piece, "She Warms My Heart", it is all about how the relationship you share with another creature, that friendship, can break in and warm your soul, even when you are in your darkest places. I struggle with depression and anxiety and the love I receive from my dog, Penny, is the best therapy I can get some days <3 She truly is a blessing to my life.
I hope all of you have a Lucky Penny <3
Hello, my friends! I am sorry that I am not on here very often, so I wanted to drop a line and tell you if you would like to see more frequent posts, just follow me on Instagram! Hope you are all doing well!…
New Watercolor
Long Time, No Post! So sorry, guys, but it doesn't mean I haven't been working! :) I have a couple new paintings on my easel (points up to picture), and I have also been knocking out the inkwork for a few new coloring pages for my upcoming coloring book! 
Now, the painting above was inspired by my love and connection to my dog, Penny, who is a beautiful German Shepherd. There is something about the bond you can have with an animal that can warm even the coldest parts of your heart....and that's the basis of this new piece.
Sleeping Bear
My little, fuzzy, cute, sleepy bear :) <3 He is only 4" x 6" pencil, and he ended up being a gift to one of my best friends.
And hey guys, sorry for the big gaps in my posts, I don't get over to Deviantart as much as I should. Join me on Instagram and you will see a lot more art, and a lot more frequently.…

Have a beautiful day!
