Kitty Paws

Kitty Paws
Here are the toes of my little four-legged male was hard enough for him to sit still for me. We had a head-to-head run in too (he was worked up in a lovie mood and went to rub my camera lens which jammed my camera into my eye - no black eye though!)

Cherry Blossom Painting

After paying a visit to the Cherry Blossom festival in Washington, DC, I wanted to find a way to keep the delicate blossoms alive longer than their short reign in the Captial. I orginially photographed the blossoms from underneath, looking towards the sky, and I loved the way that in this shot, the blossom opened up to me, almost to greet me - it has provided me with a perfect angle to capture it in acrylic paints on canvas.

I did a lot of paint mixing right on the canvas to create custom paint combinations which are near impossible to duplicate. I actually think that my favorite part of this painting is the partical blossom hanging off the edge of the canvas. He was an after-thought for me to add him on there, but I'm really pleased with the the final painting.
