"The Shedrow," from the Saratoga Series, image approximately 12" x 9", Golden Open Acrylics and Prismacolor on multimedia artboard, $169. Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.
This piece has some interesting passages - watercolor like areas, surprising strokes of color, and textural interest created via layered paint and colored pencil. I found myself digging through supplies, taking crayons and watercolors to old sketches and even thinking about adding some collage elements. Breaking the normal routine always fuels my creativity.
I've got some unexpected openings in the next couple weeks (clients still collecting references). For what it's worth, if you are wanting to book a portrait, now would be the time to get a quick as lightening turn around. Mother's Day is right around the corner (possible for local delivery only) and Father's Day will be here soon. Portraits make great gifts!! I'm just saying.
I plan on playing hookey this afternoon and getting a head start on the weekend. I'm also going to take a couple days off next week to rejuice. I'm visualizing lazy afternoons outside in a lounge chair with a good book and maybe my sketch pad. Wishing you a most excellent couple of days.
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
