Amy's Baby Shower

I painted this today for my friend Amy's baby shower, she is expecting her 2nd child soon! I forgot to get a photo of the piece with the frame on it, so I may add another photo to show that as well.

Happy Daddy Bird Day!

Happy Dad's Day everywhere! Here is a painting inspired from one of the photos my dad took, his admiration of the beauty in nature reflected in his nature photography. Growing up, he always helped me to admire the splendor of the world around us, which I am thankful for!
