Animal Paintings and more

Do you ever feel like projects never end?

 I move from one

to another

to another.

At least I have a theme going.

..................painting..............

I painted an animal painting again. This time of my baby.

I think it was even harder because I wanted to get some of his personality.

I wanted to show how much love he has.

I wanted to show how much he adores us in his eyes.

I started with a picture...


I love his sweet lips and whiskers

I am really enjoying painting the portraits. It is another way to be creative. Painting has come and gone with me throughout the years. So glad it has stuck around this time.

To be honest the first one I did, I hated. I had it all wrong. He looked so much older and I had the wrong colors.

I know what you are saying...."He is a black dog how hard can it be?"

Believe me I think they are harder to paint. Any of my painting buddies agree?

So here he is....


It isn't perfect but no painting is. Best part is the family loves it and thinks it is!

I love a happy ending...

REMEMBER: If you want one of your pet, you can order HERE... you can also see another painting I did.

Then I painted one of my favorite pieces of furniture to date. I cannot wait to show you!

I am also thinking of painting my living room too. I found a couch I want and will probably order tonight.

So much to do so little time.

..........And I finally called a travel agent to get info on my trip!! Breathe.....Breathe......Breathe.......

I think you captured him to a T. His face is so expressive in your rendering of him, and I'm sure he is so happy to be immortalized in your painting. Beautiful.

Beautiful job! what a sweet pup!

Linda said...

you've created such a beautiful portrait of your sweet dog!! I've heard others say that black is hard to paint-I do know it's hard to photo too because we have a blue roan English cocker and it's so hard sometimes to get her in the right background.

This truly rates a huge WOW! You have so accurately captured the emotion and expression of the sweet black dog. Your work is so beautiful.

You've done a wonderful job with your baby. One thing about a dogs eyes, there is always love, trust, admiration and the soul looking back at you. Very nice job. Thank you.

That's a gorgeous painting, especially because black coats are not easy to do. Blessings!
