Three Owls is Company

Hello!

I FINALLY finished this painting! This puppy has been sitting on my desk for probably a couple years, and I have been poking at it and poking at it and I am finally calling it done!

Oil paint on a 16×20″ canvas board. It needs a frame because the canvas is slightly bowed from sitting on my desk all this time…

I made this available at my society6 shop, on mugs, bags, pillows, and more! 

Thank you for looking! More art coming soon!

Wolves

Hello!

While we were on vacation a few weeks ago, we visited the Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve, to see their resident wolf pack and rescued moose. It was fun watching their 4 wolf pups playing!

Enjoy the pictures!

Cottage Week

Hello!

I forgot to post all the photos I took at our recent vacation! I will post them in a couple different posts, as I took a lot of pictures at a Wolf Reservation.

Enjoy!

White Tailed Deer in Acrylic

Hello!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! I unfortunately lost my job right before Christmas, but I see it as an opportunity to find a job I really enjoy, and to focus more on my personal artwork and business! I am always accepting commissions or requests for  prints! Feel free to email me (lydiajoypalmer@gmail.com) or contact me at my Facebook page! I also have an online shop with prints, bags, shirts, phone covers, and more!

Yesterday I completed a new painting! My family and I had an up-close encounter with some “wild” deer at a local park, so I took lots of photos then, and decided to paint one! I will probably upload the reference photos soon!

Here are my steps and the final painting at the bottom! Thank you for looking!
