03.01.2017: Endings and Beginnings

Happy New Year! Pre-Christmas I was a little busy with commissions  (which I had more of than I anticipated); I am really excited to be able to share them with you now: Although portraits are not my thing, I was very pleased to be asked to do this.

Monday, 12th: Pups and Plants
