I spend more time in my studio during these cold and dreary days, and this painting I had completed some time ago….but I was never really happy with the finished piece. I don’t remember repainting or correcting a painting once I think I’m finished…but, in this case….I’m happy with the outcome. The only risk would be that I could have made the painting worse…but not this time! Enjoy Feb 7, 2015
I received some great new dog/cat rescue stories this past fall and have been busy painting and rewriting (where needed) . Now that the work is done, we are busy finding a new publisher in the Kansas City area that will do small book runs for us. I don’t really think of myself as an illustrator, so sometimes it has been a challenge to paint the story. Some stories and photos look really very easy to translate…but then aren’t! What’s best about the whole project is reading and re-reading the submitted stories and gazing at the photos of the many lucky dogs and cats that have found a great (and sometimes very patient) home.
I started working on another garden painting from my summer sketches, but adding cats really brought the work to life! enjoy! This painting was sold in our store in Weston!
