I’ll finish up the other two gals today.
Bottom left is Guildenstern, right is Jean.
Each of their paintings will get another layer of paint before they’re finished.
I’ll be working in all of the backgrounds over the weekend for all of my portraits. You’ll see a lot of progress shots over the next couple of days!
With the New Year comes new art in my studio. These are the rest of the commissioned works that I’ll be completing in oils over the next few weeks.
A. Custom portrait of two very wonderful people, this is 8×10.
B. Custom cat painting – this is Elsie. This portrait will memorialize her, as she’s recently passed over the rainbow bridge. Her mom sent me the story of her life, and by the time I was finished, I was reading through blubbers and drips. She had a beautiful life, and she’s got a wonderful mom. This is an 11×14.
C. Custom cat painting of Willie, a pretty longhaired tuxedo cat. He’s 8×8.
D-E-F & G. Custom lovebird paintings. These are 4×4 little bitty canvas panels that will get matted and framed out to a larger size to really make them a focal point. Lovebirds are gorgeous, as you know, and there are two pair in this family. I have all of their names, but they’re a bit jumbled as I’m not sure yet which name goes with which pretty bird.
H. That pretty little kitty, Cheeky, done up in a larger, 6×6 portrait.
Then there’s Katie’s portrait, and then I’ll get crackin on the Heron painting – because it won’t be long before it’s time for my first exhibition (in March) – and I’m a last minute crunch kinda gal.
Here are Thor & Oz, I am not entirely pleased with the scan and need to redo part of it (dark banding where I merged, otherwise it’s ok to show ya!). I’m including large detail of both birds, hiding them behind the “read more” tag, so read more!
