This beautiful family of lions actually came from the zoo! No matter where they live, these marvelous creatures are regal and majestic and among my favorites in the animal kingdom.
This gypsy cob foal is so fascinating to me. As an artist, the eyes are the most intriguing feature on people as well as animals. I can’t wait to get to that part of the painting. Sometimes, I will “do” the eyes first; then it seems it’s calling out to me, begging to be completed and made whole.
Yomi is a precious young lady who attends the same high school as my daughter, Rebekah.
This young lady is as beautiful on the inside, as she is on the out; Yomi graciously agreed to “model” for me so I could paint her portrait. As a portrait artist, I tend to “study” people and their unique features. The moment I saw Yomi, I said, “I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO PAINT HER!”
My husband and I traveled to Washington D. C. and Virginia. We stopped in Williamsburg and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the colonial era. I shot this photo and placed it in an album saying, “I’ll have to paint him someday.”
Well, “someday” turned into many days! This one has well over 100 painting hours invested in it. Even so, it truly was a labor of love.
I love “The Cobbler” for all its warmth and nostalgia. I suppose it holds some sentiment as well, because when my grandfather came to America from Italy, his trade was a cobbler.
