A Very Special Pet Portrait in Oil

Remembering Molly
11 x 14 Oil on linen

This special painting was commissioned by a group to give as a gift.  I'm told they all loved it very much!

Painting this was so effortless.  I'm not saying this in a bragging kind of way.  What I mean is that the soft tones, lighting, and moment were such a pleasure to paint that it did not feel like work. I love the overall softness of the lighting and tones, which I feel contributed to rendering the perfect atmosphere for this gentle scene.  The special bond captured between a man and his best friend is so moving and the love is obvious.

I can't stress enough how much of an honour it is to be entrusted to capture these special moments.  As an artist, the satisfaction comes from the positive reactions people have to these works.  If I succeeded at accurately capturing a scene, a pet, person, or a moment, and the recipients are happy, then I am immensely satisfied.  That's when I feel a job has been well done, when I get positive feedback.  That's big.  HUGE!

Now, if you're thinking of commissioning your own special pet portrait, do not delay!  The holidays are coming really fast and time is required for an oil painting.  I'm already booked into October so be sure to reserve your space now.  I work from your quality photos to perfectly capture your pet's portrait on oil or pastel. You can contact me for more info HERE.

I'll be taking a few days off to work on my giant violin painting, but I just had to get this one done this morning.  It's listed on eBay for a low starting bid of only $0.01.  That's right.  eBay's a place to do crazy things.  You can click here to place a bid.

I've also got the official invitation for a show I'm participating in next month here in Sudbury.  Everyone is welcome for the opening reception and I do hope to meet some of you there! There's no admittance fee and refreshments will be served.  I promise it will be a fantastic show full of fabulous giant paintings!

Show Reminder

The paintings are hung and the show is on! Saturday at 1:00 is the opening reception, but the paintings are now hanging on display at Artists on Elgin. Each piece was hung yesterday and here's a photo of me at the gallery beaming after everything was hung. It's a huge breather to have reached this point! Now, there are only a few details to take care of for Saturday's reception, but it's all coasting from this point on. I'm very excited about this and I do hope to see you there, so come and see the show!

First Art Related Interview

Yes, I've had my first radio interview today! Bright'n early this morning! (7:55 am!)

Imagine my surprise yesterday when I came home from work to find out I was going to have an interview about my art and the La Cloche Art Show. And my guy Gilles said yes and planned it all out for me. I get home and he says, "Bébé, you're doing a radio interview tomorrow." Too funny! But I'm glad he did accept on my behalf and make the plans.

The interview was conducted by Stéphane Levoguer from CBC Radio Canada. Unfortunately, I had to rush off to work right after so I didn't get to hear it. Gilles listened to it and said it was well done and it also had an interview with one of the creators of the La Cloche show blended. Wish I could've heard! I checked their site to get a clip, but there isn't one so far. I'll keep checking.

So, that was my excitement for the day. I want to end this off also by thanking Stéphane. Un très gros merci Stéphane!!! C'était un plaisir d'avoir participé.
