I haven’t been posting much— in fact I’ve hardly had any time to draw between work and making decisions about Expensive Events lol. I always thought I was rather decisive, but…turns out, I’m really not 😂😂😂 any tips on making decisions quickly?

Lord of the Rings theme.
Elrond is having the vision of Estel, aka Aragorn as the future king of men and the one who will stand against darkness and unite them. This is why he named him Estel, which means hope. I chose this one, for these times we all need hope.

Title: Purrfect place 🐈 🥰

I have 2 cats, so don’t ask me why I draw cats soo often 😅 hope you like it🤗

Youngest Sister - Maria Gehrke

Title: Youngest Sister
Artist: Maria Gehrke
Another portrait done. And again one of my sisters, this time my youngest one.
Now I can finally send off all the packages.

I think captured her well, but am a little disappointed in the background color. I think I made it too vibrant / too much color, so the subtle changes in her skin color disappear a little and make the painting look flatter than it did before adding the background. But overall I am pretty happy.
I still have many more portraits to go to get better 😁

Blakistons Fish Owl - Rachel E

Title: Blakistons Fish Owl
Artist: Rachel E
This endangered owl species is the largest owl species on earth, native to SE Asia, China and Japan. Due to destruction of their riverine forest habitat for human settlements and dams only about 1200 individuals remain.
