Bear (cat)

This is my friends Nick and Jessamyn’s cat, Bear. I saw the photo and just had to paint it- the cat has such attitude! I left a little more of the pink showing through here than I usually do, mostly because I was trying to keep it a quick warm-up painting. I like the effect though.

Here’s a few warm-up pieces I did this weekend. They’re done on 5x7 card stock and I plan to donate them to Art4shelter for their 2020 sale. The reference photos are from Paint My

I’ve been trying to scheme a way to expand my home studio space. Right now my easel is in a small corner of our “office”, but we really don’t ever use the big desk in the office. Maybe move the desk to the basement? There’s not really space for it down there but there could be if I cleaned off a table full of painting stuff and took it down. Hmmmm.....I’ll be sure to post pictures if my studio takeover works out!

I painted this one a while back but forgot to post it. I was really drawn to the yellowy sky of the reference photo. I tried to keep this one fast and loose.
