I'm working on a double portrait right now of an artist
and her daughter from a photo I took last spring. The
mother is a lovely woman and I was moved by the
love between the two when I took the photo, and
wanted to paint the mother from the first time I met
The painting At the art show on the easel in the studioTonight I'm showing you a close up of the mother's
face so far, and a picture of the whole painting on the
easel as a progress shot.
Timbah and Fiona in the window.The studious cats are my own Timbah (on the left) and Fiona
(who I call Fon in the video) -- the bird on the roof
has their complete attention and they are not pleased
that it's there. The two cats rarely sit so close together,
although they sleep side by side at night. Please excuse
my cat voice. Fiona (the Siamese) likes to be talked to
in a meowing high pitched voice.
I have just learned how to upload videos and although
I haven't figured out how to edit them, I'm
very happy and beholden to Caitlin who taught me how.
Have a loving-your-cats day.
