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.
I didn’t realize that I was 13 projects behind in updating my Gallery! Yikes! I just finished getting everything uploaded, categorized, prettied up and all that, so I’d love for you to have a browse through my newest additions. You can find the thumb view here, and just pick a category from my gallery there. I’ve added blog designs, custom illustrations, two custom cat portraits, a custom dog portrait, the flowerbed mural, and other paintings and projects on my completed project list for 2006.
Now I need to show you the final scans of Mick, Maude and Cheeky. (You can find these in my gallery as well!) Scroll on down, they each get their own entry.
I finished up Taba’s Mousie today, too! I’m feeling so productive, I even prevented a senseless murder tonight – grackle vs. sparrow. I won. Sparrow lives at least a little while longer. Man those grackles are aggressive.
I’ll scan Mousie tomorrow sometime and show ya again. Cause I like to repeat myself. A lot.
