Day 102 – Secret Santa Gift

Today is the day to deliver my Secret Santa gift at work.  I drew Amanda’s name out of the hat about a week ago and immediately knew exactly what I was going to get her.  A painting.  I know a guy…

So here is a halfway decent photograph of the painting that I worked all week on.  Amanda loves owls and I am super psyched that I got to paint this all week.  The majority of the painting was finished last night though.  I stayed up all night working and reworking some of it.  Now I am at work and I give the painting to Amanda.  She loves it.  She is surprised that I made it just for her…Maybe she thought I had it laying around or something.  Lol.  I am happy to give it to her.  She says something like…there was a 15 dollar limit.  But like I said….I know a guy.


And here is a decent photo of a halfway decent sketch painting.  Ok it’s not that great.  But hey….I am a little behind and I got this done really quickly.  It is kind of folk arty.  It needs words like….I am watching you…or something.  I don’t know.  I have really been letting the paintings fall behind lately but with good reason.  I have had a lot of paid painting work come my way.  So I can’t really complain about it.  I love getting paid to make animal paintings.  It feels like it is totally in line with what I do already.  Christmas is coming…who needs a pet portrait?

    Do you paint butterflies? For the past few years, I’ve identified with them so much (my husband says it’s b/c I emerged from my chrysalis rather late in the game!)
