Guess what; in the painting the chair arm isn't pink. My camera skills are outlandish. Oh well. You get the general feel. This is the same guy that wears a life jacket. He is so much like my Mr. Magoo that painting him has a special charm for me.
This is the same painting just with a few additions. Her tag is for real. Purple crown with rhinestones. The owner hasn't decided on which painting she wants. With all this attitude I wouldn't have to think twice. I think I have painted her 4 times at this juncture. She's so beautiful that it is never boring. Her buddy Zane is coming up soon. I painted him in his life jacket. No! really.
I have this new fascination with feet, shoes, shadows and all that goes with them. My husband and I just spent a bit of time in some airports. The things folks had on their feet provided endless entertainment. I think this you'll be seeing more of this to come.
Well! I didn't think I would ever find a cat as beautiful to paint as my own orange Ollie but Ally is certainly giving him a run for his money. This is the first of two paintings I've already completed and I KNOW there will be more.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
