Portrait for Emily V. - these are the 7 pets that have been a part of my client's mom and dad's family during their family's lifetime. It is painted in acrylic and measures 20" x 30". I will make a floater frame - for which the material is arriving today. I have enjoyed putting this together -
it has turned out perfectly!
I will be adding the 'up close and personal' photos of each pet below to show detail of the animal as soon as my email or iPhone communicate with one another - always some kind of issue it seems with iPhone these days.
This was such a huge challenge for me to paint! I have angsted over it - but in the end it turned out exactly as I hoped it would. Many hours, lots of painstaking planning occurred on this one. The photos, as you can believe, were not as helpful as I wanted..many were old photos of pets who have passed. Of the 7, only three are still with the family.
The black and tan dog, Casey - 3rd from left, is a three legged dog and the
client wanted that reflected in the painting.
She lost her limb to cancer, was given only 6 mos to live
and has lived on for 2 years already.
What a nice gift of life.
NOW, I can't wait to move on with some weaving and some more acrylic painting. The studio awaits!
