cleaning house

i'm having a WINTER sale in my shop all throughout the remainder of the season...until the first day of spring. and i know, i'll be the only one who will be sad to see my beloved winter go. *sigh*

{super bowl SNOW this weekend? yes, please! :)))}

a method to my madness...

i always love seeing how other artists come up with their masterpieces...from the moment of conception to the finished product. 
so, i thought i'd share my 3 step process...from the tiny, super tight little thumbnail to the full size sketch (same size as the canvas) to the completed painting.
{such royal treatment for a princess...;)}
step 1
super tight little thumbnail

step 2
