Hello everyone. I promise to post something tomorrow showing my latest commission and show you what I’ve been up to with my art. But first, some sad news. I’m posting this because I know that many of you know Max, one of my dear little studio “helpers.” He’s appeared in my books and many of my videos. I’m very sorry to say that Max died today. He went peacefully in his house, surrounded by all the things he loved. He has been sick for a few months with a condition that was never fully understand or diagnosed completely (despite numerous tests, scans, and trips to the vet). This has been part of the reason for my silence recently. We’ve been spending as much time as possible catering to his every need. Every pet owner understands how hard this has been. Just a couple last photos of my little friend.
