"Orange Tabby," 5" x 7", feline portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, only $249 to the first taker - and if you are a Dog-a-Day collector, that converts to just $224!!). Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.
With this painting, I didn't focus on much other than color, starting with a bright orange ground (indian yellow and cadmium red light), using the cat's stripes as an excuse to introduce a variety of hues and joyful brush work. Sometimes you just have to work this way - it takes the pressure off obtaining a specific likeness and creates something entirely different. It's a free-ing and invigorating way to paint.
Today I received notice that two of my three entries for this year's Art Show at the Dog Show were accepted. Tomorrow I'll take the paintings to my framer and have her work her magic on them. It's always a priviledge to have work in this show (the only juried exhibition focused on canine art), and it wasn't that long ago that they sent me regular rejections of everything I submitted......
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family. Have a safe and warm weekend,
