The Things we Dread

Yes, I know, how could I post a picture of a gorgeous horse like Nine Pieces of Eight and talk about dread? (Yes, the photo is mine!) I’m sure some might have been missing the art as of late. In some ways, I have been too. The things we dread are often created in our…

“Smelling the Flowers”

Painting 19! This one is the other kitty. This kitty looked as if it were simply sitting in the sun smelling the flowers! Honestly I wonder if cats do enjoy the fragrance of roses and lavender. Do they smell them and think, these are good smells? You know, there are days I wish for a…

“Orange Kitty and Lilies”

“Banks”

So, yea. I haven’t had the chance to get another 100 piece done because I’ve been painting fur! This is Banks. He was commissioned by his mom to have his adorable, yet regal, portrait done! I just have to say, fur looks easy to paint….but striped fur is crazy tedious!! Now that I’m on his…
