Tuesday’s Pet Portrait

Well, it’s Tuesday again, already. It seems like the weeks are just flying by for some reason.  Here’s Tuesday’s pet portrait.  This is Bella. She is a beautiful girl who is new to my patron for whom I’ve done over a dozen portraits.  I think her pups just get more beautiful.  Hope you enjoy.  Tomato art Thursday.  The 14th Annual Tomato Art Festival is now less than three weeks away!  Hope you are making plans to attend.

Thursday Tomato Art

Here’s a new one I just completed for the Tomato Art Festival.  I’ve tentatively titled this one “Blast Off.”  I was sort of thinking the tomatoes were melting in the heat, but then it looked more like rocket exhaust taking them off to outer space.  Perhaps they are going to Mars to start a colony of giant tomatoes that will terraform Mars into a new paradise.  Or something like that.  Enjoy, and plan on coming to the festival August 11-12.

Well, it’s Tuesday again.  Hope everyone is doing well, now that the weekend and Monday are past.  Here’s Tuesday’s pet portrait.  This is Spunky, and he’s a very cute little guy.  I had another pose where the subject was leaning up against a couch.  While that presents a couple of challenges, it also helps me “anchor” the pup to something with the use of the cast shadow.  I think he turned out well, and my client was pleased.

I warned you: Tomato Art Festival work is underway at the studio.  Here’s a really unique tomato art piece I completed.  It is in three pieces, each 4×48.  They are constructed to hang with a separation between.  The sides are gallery wrapped so it seems like the vines move across the spaces.  The lighting was not the best on this photo; the painting is really striking in person.  Hope you enjoy, and mark your calendars for August 11&12.

It’s Tuesday, again, so time for a pet portrait.  I’m still working on a couple of portraits, but be warned:  Tomato festival art is going on all the time now.  Anyway, here’s Levi, who’s a really beautiful greyhound.  The photo does not do the painting justice.  The real portrait was one of the most striking I’ve done.  This one went to New York City,  so another place my portraits are hanging.  Enjoy.

Thursday, It Must Be Pet Portrait

Hope everyone had a happy and safe July 4th.  Here’s Henry, a new pet portrait just completed.  He’s a beautiful hound, with gorgeous eyes.  As always, the black pups are somewhat challenging to get right, but I think he turned out pretty well.  Hope you enjoy, and have a great weekend.

Thursday, But Tomatoes

It’s now just a little over a month to the 14th annual Tomato Art Festival at Five Points in East Nashville.  As you know, my studio is right in the heart of the festival, and as always, I do tomato art.  I’m a little late getting started this year, but am working on my fairy tale series for the show.  I’ll also have some surprise artists guests this year, so more on that as the date approaches.  As it is, mark your calendar for August 11-12, 2017 and plan to come see all the wonderful art and events at the festival.  By the way, this is “Humpty Tomato.”

It’s Tuesday again.  So here’s today’s pet portrait.  This is Neptune, who was found after the Nashville flood of 2010 and rescued by my clients.  He was actually on the tv news being carried out of the flood waters by a firefighter.  I am told that he’s just the sweetest pup ever, and I hope I captured that in this painting. Enjoy.

Here’s Thursday’s pet portrait.  This is Darcy, and she is one of the cutest sweetest pups I think I’ve ever painted.  She has the softest face.  I really enjoyed painting her, and my client was very happy, so that makes it all good.  Hope you enjoy, too.  Have a great weekend.

It’s Tuesday again.  This posting twice a week makes the time frame seem a little weird.  It’s like time slows down.  Anyway, here’s Tuesday’s pet portrait.  This is Nash, and he’s a cute little guy.  I was working from a scan of a print of a photo, so the details in the reference were a little fuzzy, but that let me make this portrait somewhat more loose than normal.  I think it turned out well, and my client was pleased, so all is good.  Enjoy.
