Pet Portrait Commission

February 19, 2018

 

I’m so excited because I just received a commission to do a pet portrait. I really enjoy doing these types of portraits in hopes of making the receiver of this remember the wonderful, beautiful,and happy times they shared with this pet. This dog that I will be painting is going to be done in watercolors with reference to crossing the rainbow bridge. It will be a bit of a challenge, but I love a challenge, and the reward that comes with it. But what makes me happiest is the giving and knowing that I am bringing some type of joy to the receiver of this painting. I have been in their shoe

s and know their loss and their joy.
I will keep you posted as this painting progresses.

Here are some paintings I previously did of pets…

Change of Pace

February 13, 2018

After some time experimenting with some different types of art, I returned to my pastels and just wanted to do something different from my norm. So I created this pastel face. It’s not my usual, but I kind of like it. I haven’t titled it yet, but it brings to mind the Billy Joel song “Stranger.” I feel like she is hiding partially behind a mask. Maybe a masquerade! Well, we all have a face that we hide away forever…image
