6x6” oil ($75)
In response to my call for pet photos, my good friend Alice sent me so many photos of different cats (and a few dogs) I wrote back to ask if she was running a pet zoo. She laughed and said no, she's not the crazy cat lady, they were her favorite photos from lots of family members.
This was a cute and funny photo. I'm calling this "Princess Marlie" because in the photo the light fixture in the background looked like a crown sitting on top of Marlie's head. I left it out, but might have to put it in another painting.
I did my first 30 in 30 2 years ago. (missed last year because of travel)
I'm learning more this time around for a couple of reasons.
- I'm painting similar subjects everyday
- I'm painting a subject that is a bit outside my comfort zone or rather not my normal subject matter and learning more because of it.
- I am painting faster (good) but now know I'm not ever going to be a daily painter! I'm realizing I need/like having a second day with fresh eyes to put on the finishing touches. On the second day for some reason things that need a slight adjustment pop out at me.
