Third in Maine Coon Oil Paintings

What can I say? I am so thrilled with how Simba's pet portrait turned out! I painted Simba's housemates Baxter and Skylar before, and this guy's portrait was the final piece.  I cannot express how much I enjoyed painting these guys.  Maine Coons are such beautiful cats, with their flowing long fur, huge eyes, and almost dog like attitudes.  No wonder they're such beloved cats!

What I love the most about Simba's painting is his look of defiance.  He seems to be full of attitude, as though he's saying, "Hey! What about it? Got something to say?"  Yeah, that's what I see when I look at this guy and I'm so happy I was able to convey that.  It was such a precious part of this portrait.

I still have a few spots open for Christmas but do not wait otherwise time will run out!  Contact me using the button on your right if you have any questions.

A Very Special Pet Portrait in Oil


Remembering Molly
11 x 14 Oil on linen

SOLD


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.

Grapes & Gold Cup Still Life


Grapes & Gold Cup
6 x 6 Oil Daily Painting
Carole Rodrigue 2014

Today was a grape day.  I haven't painted them in a long time, so I was due.  I'm not sure why I haven't painted them in suck a long while because they're a delight to paint.  It's now up on eBay.

I also want to let everyone know that it's that time of year and I am accepting pet portrait commissions.  Prices start at $200.00 US for an 11 x 14 oil painting.  Contact me for more info.  There's still time, but not for long so please don't wait!  Here's a portrait I did last year, "Shaggy", and I'm told there were tears of joy when the owner saw her beloved dog's painting.  Please don't wait!
