Girls on the prairie

So here's my pioneer girl painting, all finished!

A Letter from Brother
8x10in Watercolor and colored pencil on hot press paper.
These two pioneer girls are reading a much-anticipated letter from their older brother, who has gone out further west beyond the prairie.

Original is HERE
Prints and such are HERE

Been a quiet day in the forest. A good day, really -- I think I have the best collectors in the world. :) (Art collectors, that is!)
I am still working on portrait-style Mr. Darcy and Lizzie paintings. Brother watching The Simpsons on another laptop here in my studio space, we'll see how working goes! I am feeling quiet, so I suppose that'll be all for now. There will be ice cream later.
