Acrylic portrait of Luna

 I've been working on this 10" X 10" painting for the past few months. This is my first acrylic portrait of my rescue mutt, Luna. I used a stencil to create a subtle damask pattern on the gradient background.

From the Sketchbook - Horned Larks in pencil

On a recent birding trip I was able to get up close to and photograph some Horned Larks that were foraging with a flock of Snow Buntings on a dairy farm. These are some graphite and colored pencil sketches I created using my photos as reference.
