A friend recently asked me to paint her three pets, two cats and a dog. Having known this family for years, but now separated from them by half the country, I was delighted to take on this project as it gave me a chance to "spend some time" with these animals. Drew, Mo, and Hank - your paintings have kept me company this winter/spring and I was a little sad to send them on their way. What fun they were to create!
Our cat Skylar has been more difficult to paint. I haven't quite got her personality down in the paint, but that is pretty typical for me as a painter right now - sometimes it is easy and sometimes it is a struggle. I'll just have to keep trying until I get "her" on the canvas.
