I’ve been working on a few pet portraits as well as mammals from Africa. The elephants are shadow pieces, scrolled out by my partner. Paintings these animals, I was struck anew by their grace and majesty. Please visit our Etsy storefront, 4 Hands Art Shop, to see more nature art. We also feature Welcome signs, many with coastal themes. Each week we add more!

So pleased to watch the evolving of this. Your painting has gotten so good, the improvements from when you first started are so noticeable. Mary and I need to get settled in our re-built house before we can make art decisions because we know we are going to have limited space for hanging. But, you are first on our list, when we get this figured out. Much love to you and Cindy!
Thank you, Taya. I suppose my skills are improving—seems there are more things I am daring to attempt now. 😊 How is your house coming along? I bet you and Mary will craft a beautiful refuge.
