A beautiful morning at Frankfort Cemetery in Kentucky today changed a simple landscape into a painting of emotion just 10 minutes after I started. Painting outdoors is for practice and intended as a sketch. This only took about 45 minutes, but it's such great experience in more ways than one.
Callie and Dzl are Blue Weimaraners and the love and joy of their owner. My friend Maria commissioned me to do their portraits as a gift to the owner.
My first commission is another big step in my second year as a professional artist. There is a lot more pressure. Or, at least, I put that kind of pressure on myself.
The video talks about how this fear turned out to be unwarranted when the result was unveiled.
I guess I'm now in the pet portrait business. Hint. Hint.
