Happy New Year ! Welcome 2013

The years can go by so fast.... 2012 was no exception.  Thinking about the blessings and challenges that whirled around within the past 12 months makes for some introspective moments on this last day of the year.

Hello 2013, glad to meet you head on and with a grateful heart for all the family and friends in my life. 

Posted here is my latest portrait of a wonderful woman with her Tennessee Walker and Australian Shepherd.    She has rescued and worked tirelessly for the welfare of abused horses in our state and surrounding counties. You couldn't find a person with a bigger heart. My favorite thing about doing portraits is meeting people and getting to know them through the process. It was an honor to paint this for her.  It was the last portrait commission that I completed for the year.

As for Lakehill Studio....I'm looking forward to some new opportunities and directions for 2013. Some known and for sure some unknown to me at the moment.....
More on all that as the months start rolling by!  So for now..... Happy New Year !
