When I started this blog, my goal was to write about my art and works-in-progress. I’m trying to get back on track now that Christmas decorating is done.
One of my new projects is a portrait for my nephew and his girlfriend. He plays for the Atlanta Falcons. (yes, I’m a proud auntie! )
This is their darling furbaby, Sir Lester.
I want it to be a surprise and I got this picture off of FB. What a face! Hope I can capture that expression.
Here are some other wonderful dogs I’ve painted with photos and my portraits of them.
Sadie – my Mom’s doggy.
L’il Mo – my own ‘puppy’. I painted this when he was 6 mos. old. He’s now 10.
Phoebe & Sasha
And Roxie. I don’t have the pics I painted her from, tho. And, yes, her ‘Dad’ is a fireman!
Roxie is actually part of a ‘faux’ fireman’s hole. The station is only one story and they commissioned me to paint this. I painted it on canvas, applied it with wallpaper paste, and then they put the brass pole up.
I’ll let you know how it goes with Lester. I’ll try and take step by step pics. For me, that’s a little bit like performing in a bikini, ewww! My artwork doesn’t look too good until it’s finished, but I’ll grin and bear it.
