You know that any new series of paintings evolving around the human-animal connection is bound to star my two, Finnigan and Mona Lisa. I've been wanting to paint this image ever since the teeny Mo-Bug joined our family and put Finni on his toes. What a great opportunity to paint them both, maybe even larger than life.
(You can't tell clearly in this photo, but The Bug walks around with her tail in a perfect question mark shape. I might just title this painting "Huh?")
I've been invited to participate in a large scale art event - while the details are still being finalized, my assignment is to create a handful of paintings that represent my concept. I am scrambling about with excitement, designing a fresh approach to hanging the work and incorporating text, planning new marketing materials, and scouring my own references for compositional ideas.
Hence my latest request - bring me new muses!!
The idea here is "Cherish." I plan to paint the human-animal bond, and through my collection of images illustrate a small fraction of the realm of emotion these companions bring to our lives.
You are invited to submit non-flash photos for consideration:
Photos I plan on painting will be uploaded to the "Cherish" photo album inside the studio's Facebook page. I will also add links to the completed paintings as the series of work progresses.
I am really excited about this opportunity and look forward to sharing the latest leg of the Painting a Dog a Day journey with you!!
New paintings now available!! Some are headed to galleries, some to exhibitions - inquiries may come to me and I'll gladly point you in the right direction! THANK YOU!!
