Art in Progress: Corta


This is Corta- she owns the same people as Dorie, the dog I posted a couple of days ago. Corta is also painted on the 6x6 canvas.

Art in Progress: Dorie

This is Dorie, a dog I painted on a 6x6 canvas which is much smaller that the canvas I usually buy. It is a challenge to get this much detail on such a small canvas but I can manage it for a close-up of a pet. This size canvas is $40 & makes a great gift- it is very easy to mail. As always, 20% of each commission fee will be donated to Out of the Woods Animal Rescue.

Art in Progress: Bonnie & Clyde

When I was asked to paint cats named Bonnie & Clyde, I thought it was pretty funny. How could I not have an appreciation for creative cat names when I have cats named Ron Burgundy & Veronica Corningstone? You can see more pet portraits here. Pet portraits  begin at $75 (for one pet).

Art in Progress: Bon Vue

There is a little magic in this place; Santa Rosa Beach, Florida... and even a little more in this house, Bon Vue.(How can there not be magic in a place with a beach that looks like sugar?) That might explain why the clouds accidentally turned orange in my painting and the palm trees sprouted some especially colorful fronds. Oops. 

Bon Vue is available as a vacation rental & I love going here with my whole family. Santa Rosa Beach, Florida has quiet beaches & unobstructed views thanks to a city ordinance banning highrise buildings. It looks a bit like something out of a movie. It is 15-20 minutes from Destin if you want to go into town for shopping or entertainment. I also love Grayton Beach, which is a quirky little town about 10 minutes away on 30A.
