BindiThis is a 7×5 oil painting for my little sister of her dog Bindi. I am seriously considering doing pet portraits for a while. When I started out drawing as a kid, all I wanted to draw were horses. My love for animals has not changed, nor has my enjoyment in painting them. It is fun to capture their unique expressions. It is also a real pleasure to see their owner’s reaction to the picture when finished. So although I love landscapes and trees, I think I am going to take a side road ( = and do some animals for a while. Perhaps I will do both, but we shall see what kind of response I get.

About Artwithmycoffee

I live in Juneau, Alaska where the inspiration in nature abounds! I love taking photos of this beautiful place and then painting them. In 2013 I left my job in order to devote more time to my artwork. One of the ways I have been learning, is through online tutorials. I have been so encouraged with the amount of information that people share about their artwork. A few of my favorite sites are: Tuscon Art Academy on line, m by Richard Robinson, and with Carol Marine. These have been extremely helpful as I have been working at my painting. This year my goal is to paint almost daily and to try to get outdoors more and paint en plein air (or out doors from life). I also hope to come up with something interesting to blog about it all ( =
