Close ups.

Acrylic on 11x14 archival canvas panel.

This is the commissioned Christmas painting I mentioned. It's for a good friend of mine who's buying it for her friend ( who happens to be another good friend of mine.)

It felt a little strange after working in 5x7 format for so long. This is done in standard acrylics using many layers to adjust and tune in. It went amazingly fast and easy for me...I think I'm just thrilled to get back to painting!!
Thanks to all for your warm,welcome, well wishes. They all found their mark and lifted my spirits.
