My grandchildren commissioned the portraits of their cats. They took the pictures that I used as reference. Poor Grendel was squinting against the flash!!
Zipper only held still enough for a picture near her bowl. I am really enjoying painting animals!!!!
I have not been in my studio much these past couple of weeks.
Look at this little ball of fluff!!! Our family has been fostering Mr. Watson!! His mom is a German Shepard and his dad, a Great Pyrenees. I don't know the history of this rolly poly pooch, but he needed a place to land for a bit, so I raised my hand.
Picking up Watson from the dog transport that started it journey north in Alabama, making it's way to Kittery, Maine. We picked Watson up in Willington, Ct.
This is Wendy, one of Watson's litter mates.
Some dogs are so frightened, they have to be carried off of the transport.
The good news is that Watson has found his forever home and he will be leaving us on Saturday.
Cheerio ~ Watson
Yes, I bet you do remember the secret that I was sure I couldn't keep. Now I have one more!! I am feeling pretty good about keeping the first one, so I think I'll be just fine.
Here is a totally unrelated photograph for your viewing pleasure.
Here is a painting of young Roman. He is in the care of Big Fluffy Dog Rescue and he is looking for his "forever home" contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The painting is 18x18 oil on board.
Painting is joyous!! The teachers, my friends at the Cape School Of Art in Provincetown have taught me concepts of color so carefully thought out by Charles Hawthorne and Henry Hensche. I am drawn to Ptown every summer to learn more and to share art with my friends. Painting is joyous!
