Wired by the Sea

Happy Thanksgiving! I enjoyed having the morning free to paint and switched gears from all the pet portraits lately to try this landscape.

Happy hippo

I tried this one a couple times a while back and ended up giving up in frustration, but this time I was able to finish it! Progress! This painting is for sale, visit my online gallery to purchase.

Here is the fourth and final member of the sibling gang I’ve been working on. It’s felt really good to be painting so much lately, and I’m grateful to have even more commissions in the pipeline.

Here is the third of four lovely siblings I've been working on. This is Piglet (aka Piggers, Piggy...), who was the brother to Wiley and Lulu until he crossed the rainbow bridge in June.

This little sweetie was so fun to paint, what a cutie! I painted her brother Wiley previously, and stay tuned for her siblings Piglet and Lucy, coming soon.

Old school

This was my biggest challenge to date as far as reference pictures go - I painted a recent pet for someone and then they wanted one of their dog from about 20 years ago. I just had a photo of an old photograph to work from, but I'm happy to say I made it work.

Recent kitty commissions

I'm behind on posting, but I've been working on some cute kitty commissions lately. The ladies who commissioned them were both so lovely to work with, it's part of the process that I really enjoy- interacting with clients and getting their portraits just right. With no further ado, here are Floyd, Elmer, and Jack!
