A piece from my 2018 show titled "Habitual Creatures", which was displayed in Cambridge, MA from May 2 - June 24.

An original acrylic painting on oval shaped canvas. Painting does not come with frame, but has finished edges and a wire installed so it is ready to hang.

About the collection: "Inspired by the biological adaptations of marine life, and by the vulnerability that all creatures feel, these mermaids invite the viewer to explore various aspects of stress, change, and growth."

    I love all of the details! I was worried since she's a black dog and kind of hard to take a picture of where she doesn't just look like a lump, but this painting shows her face and her personality beautifully. Shipped in just over a week from Boston to San Antonio.

    Pros: Amazing detail, high quality, really couldn't have asked for better

    Cons: This is a gift for someone, and I'll never be able to give a better gift than this.

    This is the second piece I've purchased from Emily, both shipped quickly and the pictures cannot do them justice. I've already ordered and received the final three pieces in the series!

    Item shipped fast. Item was smaller than I originally Planned for, but it's very detailed and looks exactly like my dog. I love it
