In process "Garden Muses," 6" x 12", commissioned double portrait done in acrylics on museum quality panel. Don't you love Luna's eyelashes? What woman wouldn't kill for those?!
I'm currently accepting commissions and even have a couple spots left for delivery by Father's Day - email me if you are interested.
Both Augie and Luna had wonderful lives. My client has the fondest memories of time spent in the garden with them, so it seemed fitting that their portrait be staged in the same place. My goal is to infuse this painting with their two distinctive personalites and the unique flair of a particular location.
(I also love the way the garden growth, which reads as foliage, also reads as abstraction and patterning)
See you tomorrow!!
Thank you to all who sent in suggestions for titles - there had to be about 75 in total!! I narrowed it down to 8, and then brainstormed further from there, and then the collector who purchased this piece asked that I keep the title the same.
Of course I can do that!!
Meanwhile, this painting is signed and finished and will be heading to it's new home next week - thank you so much!
Meanwhile, if you would like to order notecards or reproductions of "Tussle" or any other of my paintings, you can do so here.
And let me tell you, I'll have to come up with some paintings to call "Co-Op," "Hot Potato," "Fracas," and "On the Ball," just to name a few!!
