My "baby" brother asked if I would paint a jaguar as part of my "endangered" series and I started it this week. I love that he is at a giant scratching post - kitties big and small, domesticated and wild share so many characteristics. On the right is a lovely birthday card - sorry I took so long to post this - from my friend and former recruit for Stampin' UP! Former in that I am no longer a demonstrator. You can see her beautiful work here. The last image below is of my dangerous cranky diva - our Boston Terrier. We rescued her 3.5 years ago and she is a pip! A definite personality and keeps me laughing with her craziness! And she is fierce - if anything bigger than her approaches when we are walking - she is a beast to be contended with. In the house - not so much! Thanks for visiting me today - I am linking to Paint Party Friday. Go over and visit this fabulous collection of artists from around the world. Have a blessed and creative day.
My finished baby rhino - I used acrylic paints, oil pastels,charcoal and Pan Pastels. Maybe you're not supposed to use the oil pastels with acrylic paint - I never learned all the rules. I have named the painting "are we there yet?" The top photo is truer to the color than the close-up which looks a little washed out. The angel below was a paint over (like a do over) and her face and body seemed to just appear - so here she is. Acrylic paint, Pan Pastels and charcoal. Don't have a name for her yet. Can you think of one?
Love doing a series - gives me all kind of ideas for other paintings. I am so glad you stopped by. I will be linking with Paint Party Friday and hope you will visit this website to see all the wonderful art. Thanks to Eva and Kristin who faithfully host this site every week. Have a blessed and creative weekend!
