    He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.
  • New Year, New Art



    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.

    Suffice it to say – my New Year’s Resolution? To Paint. A lot.
    What’s your biggest most important goal for the New Year?

    I’d love to see your art exhibit! Congratulations!! I love the tuxedo cat; it reminds me of Goku. :)

    Leanne said: I’m going with a really neat background color on his portrait, too! He’s going to look really vivid. :)

    The best part about your New Years resolutions are that we get to benefit from the results! Here’s to 2007, Leanne! I look forward to seeing your work as the year moves on.
    and I can’t wait to see the Heron, of course!! LOL.

    Leanne said: I’ll try not to make you wait more than a year. That’s long enough, isn’t it? :brickwall:

    Happy New Year!

    The art is looking good. I’m sure your exhibition will be well attended.

    As for New Year resolutions: I wasn’t going to make any. But thinking about it I should make an effort not to buy any more yarn before I’ve knitted up more of my stash :grin:

    Leanne said: HNY to you too! I have been told my exhibit will get a projected 6,000 views. That would really be something! No more yarn? That’s not nice! Go. Buy yarn. It’s too pretty not to just have it! :winking:

    Wish my goal was for something fun, but I have to get a job and join the race of life! My year of at home has ended! :sorry:

    Your to do list looks very interesting! Especially the cats!

    Leanne said: HNY Debbie! I’m sorry you have to work outside the home. What a bummer. I hope you get a job you enjoy going to!! :iloveu:
