PET PORTRAITS

Pets and the People Who Love Them

We love our pets, we are worried to death if they become ill or lost, not to mention the devastation we feel if we lose one.   They are members of the family and they deserve that special ongoing place in our lives with a portrait.  It can be serious or playful. It can be taken inside my studio or outdoors. Capturing their unique personality  will be my goal.

Please call to discuss a session for your pet – in studio or on location.  we will create an experience you will not forget.

Finally Peonies

Peonies in the Sun – Oil Painting 12×12 by Winifred Whitfield

Peonies are so beautiful and have such an abundance of petals and complexity – they have long been an intimidating subject matter. But, I decided it was time to take the challenge. I started with the violet poppy, the last image on the page, because it has a similar shape and structure – but fewer petals. Next I painted the Peony you see just below this one. Each time I painted, the process became less arduous. I’m actually looking forward to the next. Practice and I understand the creation of “muscle” memory play a part in creating confident brushstrokes. For sure, I remember when I looked at some YouTube demos on painting peonies, and had no clue how the painter was forming the shapes and petals. At this time, I can hardly remember that feeling. It’s encouraging to know and to expect that if I do my job – I will move forward.
