A friend recently told me about Reddit. While lurking, I discovered a giant gift exchange / secret Santa community. From time to time I like to participate in exchanges and decided to give it a try. It was super fun and now I'm truly addicted, so for my second exchange I decided to throw in a little oil painting. It is of my giftee's two rabbits and her dog sporting the Spartan helmet on the 50 yard line of her college's football stadium. To continue the theme her pets spell out an 'S'.

First off, here is a combo of progress shots.

The finished piece.  It is 8.5 x 11 on heavy linen paper.

With the painting I also sent a Shirt and Bandana which I am very proud of.  I'm hoping it is okay to post a pic of each here as well.  Undecided

Very imaginative painting, I really like it.  Your giftee should be very happy with all of your gifts.

This is wonderful. I go to Michigan State University too.  I was like wow Zeke the wonder dog and the black phase grey squirrles we have here, because I was just scrolling through quickly, then I realized they had short tails.  Then I read the whole post.  It is very well done.   Cool

Thanks for all the wonderful compliments.  Yeah I tried to put a lot of thought into the gifts. 

Wow I had never heard of Zeke the wonder dog.  That's awesome, the dog on the field now almost feels purposeful. : D

I had seen posts here and there about gift swaps but I want's sure where they were being hosted.  I'll defiently look into that.
