"Belly Up," 6" square, commissioned cat portrait done in Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, headed to her new home shortly. Inquiries may always come to me.
The story behind this painting is a wonderful one.
Cherie was in a life altering car accident, one that will involve months of healing. Her best friend (my client) thought the process would be a little more pleasant if Cherie could spend some time with her kitty Milla. But pets are not allowed in the hospital or the convalescent/therapy center.
Hence this painting, which will bring a small piece of Milla into places previously inaccessible.
I'm hoping "Belly Up" makes a positive difference in what will be a long recovery.
If you would like to cheer Cherie onwards, please drop me an email and I'll share an address to send cards and notes.
Thanks for looking at, and sharing, my artwork with your friends and family -
PSST - I'm still accepting holiday commissions. Email meto get on my calendar!
ANOTHER PSST - Lots of you are asking how the dog and cat are getting along. Finnigan thinks Mona Lisa will go away if he doesn't look at her but he can't help himself. And Mona has gathered up the courage to ambush Finni on a couple occasions. We think they will become great friends eventually.
I am so excited to share with you the lessons I've created exclusively for this year's Make Create Express event. The first one features butterflies and will be part of the free Creative Retreat Weekend July 11-12th. The butterfly lesson will only be available, entirely for free, during this weekend event. However BOTH lessons, the butterfly and a wonderful rabbit painting workshop, are part of the year long Make Create Express. And I'm just one of 25 other artists who have made extraordinary content. Want in? Of course you do! We are less than 3 weeks out from the Creative Retreat Weekend , and to celebrate we are having a Blog Hop Giveaway.
