Sharing is Good!

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.SharingDog

We were running low on some of the smaller watercolors/drawings/sketches available in our Bellacompany store in Weston, MO, so I’ve decided to create more! These paintings are about 15″X20″…ACRYLIC on heavy watercolor paper. I have lots of images of dogs and cats, and we have 3 dogs and 4 cats as models if I need them,… In the past, I did watercolors when I traveled, but I haven’t had an opportunity to travel…so, no new small watercolors. When I experimented with watercolor the other day, it just wasn’t working! Then I tried using acrylic paint on watercolor paper….I like the effect and the outcome. Enjoy!
