My last post and painting for Leslie Saeta’s painting challenge is a nativity commission. This painting challenge has inspired me to paint with the palette knife, paint familiar subjects and some I have never attempted before AND paint everyday…which I have not grown tired of.

I named this little painting “My English Friend”.
