It’s been a long time since I have painted. I think the last time I painted my son was a few months old. Quite a few months back, my friend had asked me to paint a portrait of their pet fish “Slippery Fish” for her daughter’s room. I started the painting a few months back, but never finished. Tired of staring at the unfinished piece, I finally got around to completing my painting tonight.
Over 4 years ago, the same friend requested a painting of their aging cat Oreo. Oreo was quite old, possibly 23 or 24 when she passed. These two paintings will be hanging side by side, like companion pieces!
My favorite medium for art is either pencil and paper, or acrylic paints. I’m still relatively new to painting. I started in about 2009. The painting of Oreo is one of my first paints, my first commissioned piece! I love that my friends will look at the painting and remember their beloved old cat!
