ALLIE


























12x12" oil on canvas
SOLD

Meet Allie. Another commission done! Albeit a tad behind schedule thanks to a lovely surprise from Tim which included spending precious time away from the easel. Combine that with a touch of the flu a few days before and we've got drama. I hate drama. I hate disappointing anyone, especially clients. Heavy sigh.

  1. Oh Suzanne, this is soooo good. One of my favorites. There is no way your clients could feel disappointed once they had this in their possession. Way to go.
