These went quick after the preview went out. Really wanted Little Owl! Buying pieces floated and framed from a gallery does make me nervous tho.
Sorry bud but I was lightning fast on that and was the first to respond after the preview email and that Little Owl is headed to me after the show... It was by far my favorite from the show... She does incredible work look forward to the future

The kingfisher painting is beautiful just couldn't spend $800+ but was my backup if all the Owls were gone

That Kingfisher painting though at 400 is a steal.

Yeah I think I would have had to take that kingfisher if I hadn't gotten the owl I wanted. Great deal but then again all of them are a bargain IMO.

Nice job man and a huge congrats to you! I'm sure it'll be amazing in person! The miss for me pushed me to contact Vanessa for a commissioned Little Owl so it worked out for us both :clap: :clap: :clap:

She might be the nicest person on Earth too

I've done commissions that have been given as gifts before, it's one of my favourite type of commission to do, but to be able to create a piece for such a special occasion has been an absolute pleasure and honour! Huge and grateful thanks to all involved


WOW! :shock:

This will be the first piece I will be doing completely in colour pencils (Faber-Castell Polychromos) so it's slightly nerve wracking, but I do love the feeling of childlike joy that using such beautiful colour pencils bring


This is great! I was hoping that she'd get more into colored pencils after the studies she did earlier in the year. :clap:
