It's been so rainy and dreary here lately- not at all like the hot and humid Julys we usually have. It's strange to be wearing sweatshirts in the studio this time of year, but I actually don't mind it. It feels kind of cozy anyways. Besides, if I want to escape to a warmer climate, all I really need to do it pick up a paint brush and pull up any order from California or Florida. It's like becoming engrossed in a good book- my mind drifts off into another place and time when I paint. It's so nice to be an artist!

I've had some emails lately with questions that I tend to get a lot concerning my portraits. I've compiled answers to these common questions here on my FAQ page. I hope that helps!
