Primitive Portrait

Just sunk my teeth into Mindy Lacefield's Primitive Portraits class. If you haven't taken one of her She paints with such ease and that's something I've been searching for in my own process for like ever. I referenced a photo for this one and I think it looks a lot like my subject. It's a surprise gift. There is nothing better than the gift of art!!

 Email me if you are interested in a commissioned kitty portrait.
I would love to paint one just for you!

Here kitty, kitty!

I'm a dog person painting cats?!?!
The top one reminds me of Gus, the only cat I've ever had. He would play fetch and lived in my first apartment I shared with my sis. When I moved in with my now husband, I don't think he thought Gus was a part of that deal but the cat eventually grew on him. Then a tumor grew on the cat and we put him to sleep when he was only 5 years old. Poor Gus - the only cat I'll ever have! 

Anyone recognize these kitties??

sharing is caring

Late to the New Year, yes I am. Staying away from social networking is so easy for me to do. Before more time gets away from me, I thought I would share some things that I haven't yet...

1. I have successfully gotten my butt up at the crack of dawn and worked out before going to the day job for a FULL YEAR. Something I never thought I would have enough will power to do. It feels good and now has become a great new habit!

2. I just completed a super cool freelance job for a HUGE client. WOW! Still pinching myself.

3. My favorite photographer friend requested an invitation from moi for her beautiful little girl...

4. I've been painting A LOT and it's more abstract, more fun, more me than anything I have done in a long time. Will share when ready.

Toodles for now y'all!
