A Pair of Unique Divine Mother Painting Commissions

The first set of commissioned Divine Mother paintings are just about finished, with maybe a few adjustments before they are released.

The Power of a Simple Spiral

Why I Won’t Be Holding the Luna Festival this Year

Behind the Scenes of the Dramatic Cat Commission

The final piece of a recent commission collection is finished! A dramatic cat painting, done in a non-abstract style for once.
