The new year, mutually to most of us, feels like a fresh start.. A marked line where we can reflect on the last year and look at the new one a head of us.
I started mine off right .... In my studio! I've admittedly been slacking on my commissions. Not getting them completed fast enough. Just taking a little too long for my own liking. Standards set by no one other than me of course because my clients are all patient and gracious and give me all the artistic freedom on the world.
So in light of that self observation here is my first completed work of the year (started in 2013). The clients request was an owl on a fence post. A few sketched out before I got the right perspective to meet both of our likings but we made it and now he is complete.
