Lighthouse…

When a commissioned piece is delivered, it isn’t often I get to see the person actually receive the work I have done.  But with the modern marvel of Face time, I was able  to see her reaction has she opened the portfolio of the Lighthouse drawing inside.  I could actually see the excitement and happiness as her eyes took in every little detail.  As I watched her gaze at every little stroke of my pencil….My emotions were as blurry as this picture I have posted….I mean lets face it, if I were a photographer this would be a totally different blog… Anyway, I went from anticipation, to worry, then fear til finally elation.  I am so appreciative she trusted me to make this keepsake  and very happy she loved it.

I really missed all of this.  Art and Blogging.  I have no one to blame but myself and this is my first step….I’m so serious that I am up writing this at 2:50 in the morning. 🙂

 

Stay safe everyone!

I giggled the whole time I drew this sweet little portrait.  Those ears….those wrinkles….those bulging eyes!  I mean, seriously?   What’s not to love!

I treasure each experience when drawing these little love bugs…But this experience was different.  I smiled like a complete goof ball every minute I was at the drawing table and quite frankly I was sad when it was over.  I dunno, it just made me happy.

Unfortunately,  she has passed over the Rainbow Bridge but the owners loved their tribute to remind them what joy she brought to their life.

And that my friends is what its all about!

I hope you guys have a great week!

Be Well and Happy!
