I must admit, every time I create a new painting it seems to be my "new" favorite and this is no exception.  Not only are Max and Simba sitting perfectly together for a wonderful composition, but they are particularly dramatic with the lighting and the fact that this painting features them lifesized!  I'm still surprised as I study this portrait on my easel.  I'd only painted one other lifesized which was a gorgeous white Poodle named Leo, at the shore (see older posts).  This was a last minute request from a client for a Christmas gift which gave me only a few days to paint it!  Being that I normally paint in thin glazes and the fact that this palette is predominantly earth tones which cover well and dry extremely quickly, I knew I could do it with such a stringent timeframe.  I think I only have two more pet portraits to complete before year end!  Coming next are Leslie's Jilly and Tucker in her beautiful French Shop in Colonial Williamsburg, then white, fluffy Daisy! :o)


A TIME TO REFLECT AND BID THANKS
Sincerest heartfelt thanks to all of you for helping make this another great year! I truly can’t tell you how much it means to me to have such wonderful patrons, colleagues, friends and followers who not only enrich my life on so many levels, but who aid in the process of making it all physically possible to continue painting!
Love and blessings to you all! With deepest gratitude,
