The Boston Red Sox winning the World Series in 2013. Matted in Red, of course.

Let me tell you – this was the most challenging test of my patience. I didn’t think I was going to make it and I am SO glad it’s done.

Created with chalk and charcoal on 16x20 gray paper. Start to finish, somewhere over 150 hours.

–P.S. The original was commission so it is sold, but prints are available at my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/201669121/boston-red-sox-giclee-print-ready-to

Number 44 up for the pitch! This is the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

But would you believe this is only half the project? This is part one of a double commission! The next one is the Red Sox winning the World Series in 2013.

This one took about 110 hours and was created with chalk and charcoal on 16x20 Strathmore paper.

Cady, Maggie, and Dewey all together!

Their owners asked me to bring their 3 Scotties together using 6 different photographs that were taken over the span of about 20 years. All three were a very special part of their family and it was so neat getting to learn how each one filled a special place.

Nok & Riker

These two sweet faces were commissioned by the most understanding client I could ever ask for. Half way through drawing this piece, I lost my beautiful puppy Brooke. She was 13 and a very big part of my family. I found it impossible to continue this piece while I was grieving and my client, having lost one of the sweeties above, knew exactly what I was going through. She gave me all the time I needed - and because of that, these two sets of big puppy eyes helped heal the ache of loosing my own sweetheart.

Created with pastel pencils and pastel bars on tan paper in about 95 hours.
