I am 3/4 of the way to the end of my 100 paintings in 100 days project! Granted I have missed some day and I won't make it 100 but that is okay. I am learning so much and producing more than I ever thought I could. And my paintings have change so much too. I feel like I am also developing in a direction which I did not expect which is exciting and anxiety producing all at the same time! I am really enjoying creating pet portraits and animal art in general.
This 75th painting is 5 x 7 and available for sale for $25. If you would like to purchase it, please email me at email@example.com. Thanks for visiting my blog today! Hope you can make it by tomorrow!

This was another kitty cat I used to have. She was very shy but very sweet and very pretty.
Doing the sketch was a great way for me to find her fur and her tabby markings. I have heard it said and I believe it is true, drawing is the basis for all good art. I always do

I was thinking of Chinese brush art when I began to apply the black lines. Something different. I like the looseness of the lines. It feels sketchy and freer than some of my more detailed paintings. It was relaxing to try something a bit new.

Wow, I didn't expect to feel that so deeply! But that is what having a portrait of him causes! Something about focusing on all the little detail that make him who he was brings back all the sweet memories I have tangled up with him.
I am currently taking orders for pet portraits and would love to help you make something precious that you can keep forever that will remind you of how much you love your pet. We don't get to keep them as long as we'd like and something that preserves those memories is priceless.
This is my 71st painting in my 100 paintings project. I think I am going to have to hang on to this one so it is not available. But I still have other paintings available for sale yet. If there is one you are interested in, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd also love to hear from you if you would like a pet portrait done. This was done from a photo and I can do the same for you.
Thanks for following my art. I would love to know what you think in the comments below!
