I have gotten so many comments on this one so I thought I would post about it. This painting started with such a zestful feeling in my heart - that usually bodes well for a painting. I was a little concerned about the composition since the whole painting was taken from my memory and imagination. I didn't use any studies or pictures. .. so I had to get creative with light and color to achieve balance and focus. The dog is based on our dog Finnbar and the cat on our cat Jackson.
I painted this right after I was recovering from the flu and I wanted to paint comfort.
Thank you to all the artists and art lovers who emailed me about this one. Sometimes it is hard to know how well you did in that solitary studio.
