"Green Mandalyn," 4" x 8", kitten portrait in acrylic on board. Proceeds from the sale of Mandalyn's painting will be donated to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (www.bestfriends.org) .Inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Remember Mandalyn (from November 10th - http://tinyurl.com/56s37a)? Here's another painting of her. She is continuing to recover from her wounds, and seems to understand that she must leave them alone. She has won the hearts of the Best Friends staff, and I am certain that once her health issues are resolved, this little one will quickly find a forever home. You can follow Mandalyn's progress on the Best Friends website (listed above), in the Guardian Angel section.
This painting is similar in composition to "Fierce Hunter" (from November 20th - http://tinyurl.com/62rc39 ), but looks entirely different. A combination of softer colors and a variety of edgework keep Mandalyn's portrait from being a simple exercise in shape and color, like "Fierce Hunter."
I wish all my readers a wonderful Thanksgiving (even those outside the US) - I hope you are able to share Thursday with special friends and family, and can spend the day doing things you love.
I'm off to spend the day in the kitchen - something I love almost as much as painting. Thank you, as always, for reading the blog and following along with the stories.
Happy Thanksgiving! Kim
