KUMA

My latest piece is a portrait of Kuma for the only people I can currently call "patrons," Lexi and Bobby.  Kuma is of course their adorable dog and it was a lot of fun to do this drawing.  I somehow always forget how much I enjoy doing photo realistic drawings until I find myself losing track of the hours working one.  I'm extremely happy with how this one came out and stoked that they liked it too.

Love the painting of Kumu! I miss having a dig in the house. Maybe after retirement. You have a great talent. Keep up the great work. DAD

Hey Aunty Nina,
I don't know how to get a hold of you, so I hope you check this. But thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Lexi actually has the drawing. Hope it was fun with Kuma in Hawaii for a while.
