It’s been ages since I’ve posted. Shortly after I wrote the previous post, I was hospitalized and had a severe reaction to a medication which resulted in heart failure. It took months to recover and I had so little energy I didn’t do much painting. I’m finally well enough to feel like taking up where I left off!
This was my 2013 Christmas painting. The reference photo was taken by Seth Casteel, an amazing pet photographer (used with permission). He caught the doxies “kissing” and I added the mistletoe 🙂 This was my first experiment with gallery wrapped canvas which is watercolor paper soaked and stapled over a traditional canvas. When it’s dry, you can paint it and then seal so that it can be hung without a frame. 8″ x 10″
