Two Puffers!

This was quite a challenge, a commission for a a constant client who is also a friend!

Two 11x14s to be given as gifts. Now I'm not a locomotive fan I like painting rough and ready wilderness and cloudy skies and shimmering water, so for this I had to borrow some fine brushes and find my gentle side!

But there was relief in the smoke I grabbed big brushes, lots of paint and let the right brain do what ever it wanted!

Now I can relax and enjoy the Season
Merry Christmas to all and a wonderful New year

"Scrapper" the cat

"Scrapper" oil on 8x10 board

A Commission

A rescue that just made it, they named her Scrapper 
They found this lovely cat, about 4 weeks old, in a Dump, she was making enough noise they were able to find her just in time, she was so small and fit in the rescuers hand. 
Now a very loving 2 year old lucky to find a good home and well loved too!

Not an easy creature to paint though, the photo was very monotone, so I had to interpret a bit.
