game over


Game over.
pve design oil commission

I finished this oil last week and after many days of running around the canvas with my brush and paint, I feel like these dogs need a rest and some sort of treat.
(Picturing some sort of chunky wooden frame.)

This artist deserves a treat too.
How do you reward yourself when you end a game of hide and seek or chase?

The recipients will be thrilled! I think rewards are in order. I always treat myself to a little something with the completion of a commission.
