I can't believe this is it! Day 365! Well, last but not least - the little Chihuahua! Again, another Easter egg inspired illustration! Hope you've enjoyed my year of illustrations! It's almost hard to believe a whole year went by already! Please don't fret, I will continue to post pictures along the way. My painting doesn't stop here! Thanks for following me along and I promise to update you with little treasures along the way! In fact, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I may have gotten a book deal based on some of these illustrations! I will happily share the details once it gets finalized!! ((Big hugs))
Maybe I have Easter on my mind...this husky looks like he's a decal on an Easter egg!
A little bulldog.
Wow! Can't believe I only have a few days left of my 365 Sketchbook Project! Where did that time go? I must say, there's a part of me that is looking forward to taking a break. It wasn't always easy to pick up a paintbrush on the days that I was sick or had to help my kids with homework. Committing to anything for a year, or longer, takes true dedication. Somehow, this experience has become secondhand to me now - the act of creating art every day and sharing it with my friends on Facebook and Instagram. Just because my yearly project is almost at an end, please know that I am not far. I am right here, and will be regularly posting to share my creative tidbits along the way.
Le French Poodle.
String of Pearls plant with sleeping cat.
Not sure where the birthday party idea came from? No one has a birthday in my immediate circle of family and friends. Guess it's just the warm weather that is calling out for a celebration!
Kitty in a window. A French window, that is.
Thinking of all my friends and family with their lovely pets. This one is for my sister-in-law in remembrance of her wonderful Great Dane.
Here's to the sweet little dog that lives across the street from me! Meet Louie.
The German Shepherd. We had two of these breeds growing up (not at the same time). Ringer and Kaiser were both larger than life! Or maybe that's because I was such a wee little one.
A quick study. Not sure that I ever used a big brush for any of my sketchbook paintings? I kind of like the looseness to this painting. Frankly, I wouldn't have minded if it were even looser. May have to try a few more studies like this.
Last of the little French kitties in this collection!
A sweet little pooch!
Wow! Can't believe I only have 15 days left to paint of my 365 Series! This year has gone by so fast! However, please stay tuned as I will now spend time putting all of my art together in some fun collections for home decor & gift products! I'm so excited to share my collections with you! Annndd....I'm finally beginning groundwork on being able to sell my products online! It's amazing how much time and effort it takes to getting this all together. I have some lovely friends who have offered to help me. Now, I just need to clean my space and make room to inventory product. Please stay tuned!
Another French kitty!
I know a few Golden Retriever families out there. Such a happy, playful breed!
Getting a little "Frenchie" with my felines!
This is my sweet friend and publisher's dog ~ Sampson. His eyes couldn't be any more icy blue!
