A Sunday Afternoon Sitting





My back porch as studio.



This beautiful mother and daughter sat for a double portrait today. The portrait is Jessica Carmichael's gift to her mom, Karen. I recently advertised on my Facebook Fan Page that I am doing quick and affordable portraits. So far I have three commissions! I'm very pleased. It's really alot of fun, and I often do my best work in a short amount of time. I just want to make a living, and decided to set my prices comparable to what other professionals charge, such as massage therapists, or psychologists, or dental hygienists...
I want my art to get out there, and I want people to have it and enjoy it. To heck with the whole expensive gallery scene!!!
