Next weekend six painters from PPASP are part of a holiday exhibit entitled "Hearth & Home" at Gallery 2121. Each artist will be contributing something unique to the mix for a show that emphasizes the beauty and comfort of our surroundings. What describes home better than it's furry member(s)? One of the things that I'll be offering is animal portraits (by commission). This is a pastel I did of "Patches". I never met Patches (because the portrait was posthumous). I heard plenty of stories about what a special dog she was...how she would sit at attention until she was given the signal to "nose-dive" for treats placed in the bottom of a tub of water. She would submerge her entire face into the tub and a steady stream of bubbles would come up to the surface on either side of her snout until she came up with her treat. I know that sounds weird, but apparently she really loved to do it! She was part of the family for years and years. I was always happy to know that my portrait of her was/is considered a treasure by the whole family.
An animal portrait takes from 3-6 weeks for completion.
