Above is the finished portrait I started last week. This is an 8x10 acrylic painting, framed, and is available for purchase through my website (www.stephanieallison.com). I managed to complete another painting this weekend, as well--one that I have been working on for quite awhile. It's a cottage in Bunratty Village, Ireland. This is a 16 x 20 acrylic, also available through my website.Started another pet portrait commission yesterday, this one of a cat named Samson. This is the first pass of color. I'll be adding more details and fine-tuning it this week, so check back later to see the progress.
I have lots of plans in the works for my pet portraits, including a calendar. I'll be posting the details later. I'm really excited and I hope you all will be too!
Now...on to my mini-poems and photos-a-day: Obviously, I have been way, way behind on both of these endeavors, but I'm working my way back into it. I did manage to write a little micro-poem last night. Here it is:
Like the slow and steady turtle
Thunder lumbers east
unphased by Lightning's razzle-dazzle.
Tonight's goal: a personal best.
So that's it for tonight! Be kind to your pets--their love for you is unconditional! Paws up!
