Here is sweet Sophie, my cousins' dog who recently passed away. She is loved and missed greatly!

Just some onions! This is based off of a reference photo I found online. I still don't have a good set-up to do "live" still-lifes at home.

216 W. 3rd St.

I recently took a house portrait painting class from my wonderful painting teacher, Kat Corrigan. This is the house I grew up in in Litchfield, MN. It's bright orange now (see photo below!) but I painted it as I remembered it, it used to be brown. I tried adding some trees to the background but it looked really busy and detracted from the house so I painted over them. I think I'll try again with more simplified trees.

The house today!
