"Still Waters (Bear)," 16" x 20", acrylics on museum quality panel, commissioned portrait of a Golden Retriever I've painted more often than my own dog (and hope to paint many, many more times), acrylics on a museum quality panel. Ask nicely if you would like one of these portraits starring your pet.
Some faces are so timeless, I could never tire of painting them. Such is Bear's - I hope to get to create many more pieces inspired by him.
Provided fate continues to allow that. While running errands today, I was delayed by a feral pregnant kitty. I tried unsuccessfully to lure her close enough for a good look (or a quick drive to a warm bed in my garage), but she outwiled me. After a fruitless 45 minutes, I left her a chicken breast, messaged my friend who's an animal control officer, and went on my way.
Only to discover emergency crews caring for the injured at a serious car accident which occurred exactly at the point I would have been sitting, waiting to turn into my next errand, had I not been delayed.
Karma came in the form of this wild little tabby today. I am so grateful for her intervention.
Hug those you love, including your senior dogs. And throw some good out into the world, because you never know when you'll need it to come trickling back your way.
Thanks for following along with my artwork,
