12 days 'til christmas

11"x15" commission, charcoal on illustration board 

it is a busy time for me right now and for that i am very thankful!  today i realized that it is the 12th of december. and upon realizing it is the 12th of december, i also realized that i have 12 commissioned pieces to be completed by christmas eve. yes, 12. yes, i am feeling a bit overwhelmed. but, at the same time truly glad to be so busy. in all fairness, i did get a head start earlier this week on a few of the pieces. the first one is posted above. it is a house portrait created to be given as a christmas gift. 

so, i thought i'd attempt to do a countdown every day until christmas eve by posting each new piece as it is completed. *note* - i will attempt...

happy 12th of december to you!
