I like to paint pet portraits. Here is a picture I recently painted of my sisters dogs Bella and Gretta. They live in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. I hope you like it. I am not sure if the picture will post or not. I did not see it in the preview.
Kate Callahan, nice work with the dogs. The one on the left, especially, makes me think she's a fun-loving goofette. Over the years, I've painted many portraits of my friend's dogs, and thought I could do pet portraits as a sideline. I was mistaken--without knowing the dog personally, I find it difficult to convey the personality. So I'm sticking to dogs I know.
Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement. I don't really know my sisters dogs on a personal level as we live pretty far from each other, but the one on the left is definitely a fun-loving goofette according to my sister. Painting is a God given gift and I really enjoy it. It is a form of meditation and often when I am done, I look at the work and think to myself, how did I do that?
been doing epic amounts of craftwork, especially beadwork lately, thought i would share some of the pics...
took a lot of pics for listing on etsy.com, but before i could post them up pre christmas time, i sold most everything i had photographed before even getting to list! well still have a lot of stuff to list, once i get another big photo session done of my latest work..
already sold all of the pieces i made in this style -->
will have to make some time to make some more, but the spiral stitched straps take quite a while so i havent yet made any more with those amethyst pendants...
do still have a few left that i did with abalone centerpieces..
and quite a few i did with no pendant, just the spiral stitch
also made a ton of rainbows!
did a couple of commissioned pieces of extra long rainbow earrings, and decided to make a few more that way-->
liked these so much i made a duplicate and been enjoying these for myself -->
well thats probably more than enough for now =)
procrastinating a bit to list what i do have left to list on etsy...if i finally get it all listed up in the next few days i will remember to come back here to drop a link...
yeah i have been doing ok and selling a lot of stuffs =)
my new landmates are much more extroverted/social, and they have been selling my stuff for me on consignment...which is nice. plus i have been selling online and people contact me for pieces that they saw, or something similar. i like that my work sells itself, when it does =)
