Paint Party Friday 3/8/13

Thanks for stopping by to visit for Paint Party Friday!


This week I'm in the process of completing a torn paper pet portrait commission of Maestro.I've finished Maestro and am just choosing a background for him, next he'll be mounted on a birch panel then it's off to the Gallery in Pennsylvania that ordered him.

Choosing a background for Maestro

While I wait for layers to dry on my torn paper commissions, I create Digitally painted commissions
This year is off to an amazing pace with 15 commissions to complete I may never see the light of day LOL.  No complaints, I love being an artist for a living.

If you care to know more about how I create my torn paper or digitally painted pet portraits you can see more work and details at these links.

Can't wait to see what you're up to this Paint Party Friday.  Thank You Kristin and Eva for this wonderful weekly venue!

Maestro looks perfect! I am actually amazed, I always find painting animals (particularly ones with scruffy fur like him) hard to capture. This technique is perfect! Fantastic.
