Easter Sunday Mass at Chiesa di San Biagio in Montepulciano. It's funny how Mass is the same no matter what country you are in or what language you speak.

View of Montepulciano from out villa pool.... while enjoying a glass of Montepulciano! Sort of feels like a dream. I may never come back!

Made it to the remote villa in Tuscany. Just outside Pienza. Let the vacation begin... but first, a nap!

Portrait commission I mailed out the other week. This one was a toughie. Worked with several reference photos (some grainy/shadowy ones from the 60's) to illustrate the inside joke between two childhood friends. Really happy with how this turned out, particularly the reflection in the gazing ball!
@katiedoingstuff you should recognize that scowl!

Worked up this sketch for a large painting I am doing for Madison's Gallery Night. Instead of using canvas, I stretched a beautiful piece of Argentinian leather across my frame. Planning on using a base of acrylic with oil overtop. I'm also debating what color to make the contrast stripe- Chartreuse? Hot pink? Mustard? Let me know what you would like to see!
The final piece will be hung and for sale May 5th at the Grand Opening of @one_onethousand !

Sharing this cute pup commission from last month. Sherman was a sweetie. I'm taking a break from commissions this month to tackle personal projects, do some more fashion sketching (my true passion), and travel Italy. If you so desire a dog portrait (or any other portrait), reach out to me in May!
