My Gift to You, a New Painting Demo Video!




Happy Holidays to all!
  Here is my first, ever, painting demo video. It is of the process I took to create a commissioned painting titled: Dear Jocelan.
   It is with my sincerest thanks and gratitude to all of those that have encouraged, supported, and inspired me over this past incredible year. I can't wait for all that the New Year brings!
Thank you!
