Pet portraits and this time our ragdoll cat, Oliver!   A mix of acrylics and oils this time and, just for a change, painting on canvas after so many of my paintings have been on boards.  All good fun! 

If anyone is interested in having their pet’s portrait done, would be happy to do.

Lois Lane…

This portrait was done in one session, although initially I had left  a plain background.  At home and looking at how I had captured the model, I just kept thinking of Lois Lane.  So it was time to have a bit of fun and play with that background. The articles about Superman seemed to fit in.   

Artist at play…another puppy

I couldn’t resist some further play, when a friend of mine, Jo, recently showed me some photos of her latest addition to her family.  Very cute.  Another puppy… “Jet”.
 
As an animal lover, pets are so important in a family.   While we lost our beautiful dog, Lucy, just over a year ago, we still have a cat, a rabbit and two chooks.  Our life is richer for their presence and so it is a joy for me to do portraits of these loved ones as well!
 
Playing with the charcoal, pastels, the watercolours and the coloured paper is also all a bit of fun!
