Painting a Pet Picture

Painting is fun for me when it’s very creative, colorful, and a bit abstract.  It’s always been a challenge for me to paint faces of anything such as people or animals so I gravitate to an abstract technique.

Here is a painting I recently painted for my mother in law for her birthday.

So, it was a no brainer to paint a picture of a subject that she already loves!

The great thing about this project is that I was able to bring it to the pool and paint while the boys were swimming!  I used several different colors, so I simply squirted little bit of each color on a plate, covered it with saran wrap; grabbed my brushes and a canvas, and was on our way to the pool.
