Jackson and Reagan- 12x12 commission


I picked up my new MacBook Pro last night and I am making my first post from it. I really LOVE it.
::::sipping the kool-aid:::::::::: and I think I'm going to like it more when I see what it can do :D
This commission was done for a lovely woman who befriended me while I was on my Painting Safari by the River last September. Lots of people walk their dogs there and I met them all.
I delivered it yesterday and she was very pleased.
