Hum Drum New Year

I'm feeling a little blah today. It's raining. The frenzy of the holidays is over. My brother and sister-in-law are back in Toronto. Kirk is back at work. I took the Christmas decorations down this morning and the bare tree is standing in the corner, waiting to be taken to the chipper tomorrow (which kind of makes me feel like a jerk). I'm sitting alone on the couch.

I need a new project, so I've decided to do a portrait of a very good friend of mine. I'll be painting it with acrylic on a 11" square piece of watercolour paper. I'm not going to say who it's supposed to be, in case it ends up not looking anything like her :) Then it'll just be a portrait of a pretty girl.


  1. Do you do pet portraits? if not think about it cause i would love one of my kitties and I think you would do an awesome job.

  2. I was commissioned for a dog painting a few months ago, and then she fell off the face of the earth. I'd love to paint your kitties - they're adorable!

  3. Awesome! I'll contact you soon and we can chat about it. And YES my kitties are adorable!
