I have sold my work titled "Topsail Treasures". You can see it in the blog post here.
It was bought by another artist, which just floors me. I guess I'm my own worst critic. But it makes me feel validated, that as an artist, I am doing some good works.

This is one of a few studies that I'm doing in preparation for a larger piece. This is a Mandevilla vine that I have had growing for several years.

I have been able to keep it going through the winters by prunning it back rather severly and cutting back on watering. I move it inside to protect it from freezing temperatures. It makes it through the winter and once outside in the sunshine and warm spring air, grows like a weed.
