I've been doing a lot of watercolor sketches lately in a small watercolor Moleskine that I picked up from Dick Blick. I'm really falling in love with watercolors. I love the way you can capture reflections with watercolor in a different way than oil painting. Oil painting allows a lot more manipulation of the paint; watercolor painting is more fragile and doesn't allow as much messing around. I think watercolors have a more poetic and transient feel to them, which I also am constantly trying to understand.
A huge thanks to my Instagram followers! I love drawing and painting portrait commissions and hearing the feedback from all of you. And it's so wonderful to be connected to a community of pet lovers. I also want to thank my girlfriend, Laura, who manages my account. She's truly brilliant and I couldn't have done this business without her.

I'm very proud to share these photos of my most recent commission. I just finished it today and I couldn't be happier. I still have to sign it and varnish it before I give it to my patron. This was a work with a lot of ups and downs, but I learned a lot by pushing through the tribulations and finishing it.
