"Blue," roughly 8" x 10", acrylics on a shield shaped wooden panel (yes, the painting is this shape and roughly 3/4" high), my personal collection. I'm not letting this one go anywhere! Message me if you would like information on commissioning your own pet's portrait, or maybe you want something like this, in a special shape. Portraits start at $400.
Trekell Art Supplies has a pet portrait contest where submissions must be painted on their panels. I hadn't worked with Trekell previously, although I have been intrigued by their panels' delightful shapes for quite some time. I bought a couple extras when I ordered this, along with a larger fancy medallion one and a shrine shaped piece, just to have fun with. I don't know what I will put on them yet, but they are sitting here, waiting patiently for inspiration to hit.
Meanwhile, I hope to finish 2 other commissions tomorrow. I know it's technically a holiday here in the states, but I'm just not feeling much like celebrating at all, particularly celebrating being American right now. We will instead have a big dinner Saturday prior to sending The Man Child and His Better Half back to Louisville. It sure has been wonderful to have them staying with us during quarantine, and the house will be oddly quiet next week.
I'd better make sure this painting doesn't "accidentally" end up in one of his boxes! I know they both will miss the dogs, Blue in particular, something fierce.
Thanks for following along with my painting journey,
And wishing you a marvelous weekend, Kim
