Preserving Treasured Friends in a Painting
Happy New Year readers! I trust that each of you have stepped into the year 2014 with a renewed zest for life and a determination to be your happiest, healthiest, and most creative you! I have a steady slew of things to show you, as I had to keep several projects "under wraps" as it were for Christmas! I will begin with Baxley! Baxley (aka Baxleyman/Furface/Good Boy) was a dear pet that belonged to a very good friend of mine. Baxley lived a long life filled with love and was a treasured lifelong friend. Therefore, we immortalized him in paint to keep the warm memories alive for many years to come. This is an acrylic paint painting on stretched canvas and is 16" x 20." We decided to have a tree in the background in which to hide his many nicknames, as an added unique detail.
I am so glad to have Baxley as a part of the dog gallery! There is much more to come this year! Stay tuned - keep the music on - and those creative wheels turning folks!
I am always looking for new and unique projects to entertain myself (and my two children) as well as expand and diversify my portfolio and skills! Here is where I share what I have been doing and all of my "Pet Projects!" Thanks for stopping by!
