Today I'm sharing for both Artist Studio Day over at The Smartest Artist  and What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday. 

I am currently working on another commissioned, hand torn paper pet portrait.  I had to hide the work in progress under the papers though because this one is a surprise gift, so you'll just have to wait to see the finished product :)  

I can share with you Maddie's finished hand torn paper pet portrait though that I finished last week:

Hand Torn Paper Pet Portrait Commission of Maddie

What I've spent even more time on this week was starting my newest blog "The Smartest Artist"   After years of my artist friends asking for tips/tricks/suggestions to selling and marketing art successfully I finally decided to share information via this new blog.  Here are links to 3 of posts I hope you'll stop by for a visit:
