29 Faces Day 15

“Barking Up the Wrong Tree”

Day 15 and still hanging in there. I’ve gotten myself on a kick of painting some cute little girls for the last couple of days. This one happens to be a country gal, perhaps a young Dolly Parton (the HAIR people LOL), barefoot in the holler. Marge, her faithful coonhound and companion, sitting beside her and barking up the wrong tree!



“Quirky Animals”


Someone said to me the other day, “I love your animal paintings. They are so cute and quirky.” Funny, this is not the first time I have heard my animals described as quirky. I have often thought it myself. I am not really sure what gives them that quality. Is it the eyes, the poses, the proportions, the palette? Is it because I paint these critters from my head, with very little help (if any) from reference photos? Truth be told, probably all of those reasons. I’ll never know for sure, but they sure are fun to paint.  🙂     ps-You think my animals are quirky, wait until you see my people…
