Elvis Ornament

This was a special commission, pushing the boundries of my comfort level....people are difficult enough to paint, but when its someone famous...pressure!
I was very happy with the outcome though; the ornament itself was done in a mixture of warm, soft whites/greys and blues. I didnt get a good pic of it, but on the back I hand scripted "I'll have a Blue Christmas..."

Porcelain Ball- Sierra

Another porcelain ornament, this is a husky named Sierra
and, nope, I didn't draw her funny :-)
This girl had an injury when she was a puppy which
permanently damaged her facial nerve and left her

with a perpetual grin and half wink!
