Adventures in Autumn - Commision Painting

Here is a painting I did a little while back as a commissioned piece for a little boy's room. I believe it was a present for the little guys 1st birthday, and all I can say is this has to be the first painting I've ever done for anyones first birthday, really cool. When he learns to talk I'll have to ask him what he thinks, and even then, there is a pretty good chance he may just giggle, burp, or drool, which I'll gladly take any of those as a compliment.

Finally something on time for the holidays

With the holidays quickly approaching and the weather getting colder I have to say it's one of my favorite times of the year. And usually around this time I love to paint something of the holiday spirit for me and my wifes holiday card, and being an artist, always busy with way too many projects, every year I always seem to feel rushed in doing so. Well finally this year I'm ahead of schedule and that's nice for a change. I had a lot of fun painting this piece and most importantly my wife crystal loves it too, giving me her two cute thumbs up. Of course the yeti is no suprise here, but I thought it would be fun to see him decorated in some holiday cheer. My only hope now is that it prints well on the cards, I've gone through Kodak before and they were great, so all should be good in the end. This piece is also availiable in the store here as a print for those interested, and is going to be given away framed and for free as a part of the Stores Holiday Painting Give-A-Way which you can read about here if you are interested. I should note that all of the items in the store will be on sale during the holiday season for those of you interested.
