Latest Pastel Commission - Sam

I had the privilege of doing this pastel of my client's grandson, Sam. 

He is just precious.  You've got to love those cheeks!

I have to admit I was a little concerned about finding a frame, especially during this pandemic, but I found a great frame on line at Hobby Lobby.  They got it to me in a very timely manner and the packaging was excellent - no damage at all to the frame.  It is a high quality frame and I love the color!  I think it really sets the pastel off great - don't you?

The pastel is 8" x 10" on velour paper.  Here are a few of the WIPs (work in progress) of this pastel:

Please contact me at if you'd like a pastel done of one of your family members.  I'd love to do one for you! 

Stay safe and well!

New Pastel Commission - Missy Bella

I had a couple of new pastel commissions recently and this is one of them.  It is of Missy Bella - a very beautiful Australian Shepherd.  She is much loved and is a sweet companion.

This pastel is 11" x 14" and was done on velour paper.  Here are pictures of my work in progress (WIPs).

I'm very pleased with the way it turned out and so was my client!  

Hope you enjoy looking at them and if you ever want a pastel done of your pet please be sure to contact me at
