"Demure (Taylor)," 5" x 7", portrait of a black Cocker Spaniel, acrylic on Ampersand Gessoboard, not for sale. Inquiries may always come to me.
Taylor's portrait was initially commissioned over 6 years ago. Various events occurred to postpone her portrait, first once, then another time, and I think even a third. I set her folder aside, trusting that when the timing was right, the project would pull together.
And it did!
Taylor's portrait is headed to the Southeastern Michigan Portrait Exhibition, a juried annual show at the Orion Art Center. She'll be accompanied by last week's painting ofFinnigan and, I think, an earlier one from my personal collection of my black cat Miah. This show is unique in that the exhibited artwork does not have to be for sale, so it allows me to showcase paintings that might not be on the market or pieces that have already sold.
If you are in the area, the exhibition opens next Friday, October 16th, at 7pm (call 248-693-4986 for more information). Please stop by, enjoy the collection of artwork (this year it includes pottery as well), and share a glass of wine with fellow art enthusiasts.
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
