Tis the season and 10 questions for December.

This month has been packed full of pet portraits. In a past post, I mentioned these portraits and apparently the Christmas season has led to my little side business taking off! I am very grateful, but it means my life has been on hold while I complete all these orders!  Work, ride my horse, draw,…
