I’ve finished Saul’s portrait for LifeLine Community Animal Center grand opening party this weekend! Several Atlanta artists created portraits of their dogs and if you adopt one of the models you get the painting too. It was awesome to be a part of something so special, and you know I love painting animals.
You know I am a massive fan of UK rock band The Struts, and as I am headed to Nashville for a show in a couple days, I really felt compelled to do a little something for the band members. I found these great magnet-backed small canvas panels and thought they might be a nice way for a band on tour to keep up with a bit of art.
I present to you my feathered friends of Zoo Atlanta’s Art Gone Wild 2019!
A friend commissioned this portrait for a friend of theirs that had to say goodbye to their dog recently.
I got an iPad and pencil for Christmas and downloaded Procreate to give it a spin. It’s definiely different than a brush on canvas. Here are two cute birds I digitally painted. I am looking forward to exploring this new art form!
I had a goal to paint five portraits, but in the end (with my busy work schedule), I only had time for four canvases. For a fun personal challenge, I went with an all bird theme, and I must say that my first time painting birds has me absolutley in love with the creatures. I had so much fun getting to know them and their unique behaviors and personalities! I’m excited to share my pieces for my second year as an Art Gone Wild artist for Zoo Atlanta!
No picture seems to capture the feeling of this 4’x5’ painting of Alexander Milov’s “Love” sculpture. The colors are so intense, the Inner Children and the cage-like adult figures are practically sculpted in the paint. What a lovely adventure it was to paint this! And I feel like I don’t work in oil paint as much as I’d love to. The drying time is always an inhibitor for commissions, but the owner of the company that requested this piece didn’t mind waiting patiently. Please enjoy!
