38" x 32" oils
I went to Carthage a few years ago and snapped a photo, then a year later started this painting. You can see in the above photographs the process. Every brick was carefully drawn to size, including the cracks, and it shows in the final painting. I started this painting in one state, moved to a new state, and finished it there. That was interesting. The first thing I painted was the well's dark side, and the last things I painted were the little reflective leaves at the top.

It's Painting Cats and Dogs!

From the Top:
C is for Cat 2.75" x 3" sold
Cozy Kittie 6" x 7" soldDog and Dots 6" x 6" contact me for a price
Nightly Nap 6" x 8" soldSage Dog 4" x 4"  sold

All of these pieces are mounted on 3/4" birch and ready to hang with a sawtooth hanger already installed. I first drew the picture with pen and ink, watercolored it, then mounted it with a collage of scrapbook paper, ribbon, and/or embellishments onto the birch. The sides are painted a coordinating color. They are really cute and the perfect addition to any animal-lover's collection! E-mail me if you'd like one:
