This elegant lady was painted for a Christmas gift. Roxy is also a "grand-dog" of the client who commissioned "Cooper," below. The canvas is just 8" x 10", so it's a nice compact piece of art.
This cute beagle mix was painted for a woman to give to her son for Christmas. She calls Cooper her grand-dog. She supplied me with about six photos to use. A painting this size may be framed and hung on the wall or set on a decorative easel on a table.
This painting was done by several participants at Respite Care Ministries in Charleston, SC. It was finished in early December. Five different painters worked on this, one at a time. I watched and guided (and planned the project from the beginning). It took only five sessions to complete.
No one seemed bothered that they had to use blue and purple to paint the snow. But when asked what color the snow was, each insisted that "Snow is white." We couldn't decide if it was early morning or late in the day in the photo we used for inspiration.
This was a fun project. The image may be used to make note cards to sell to raise funds for the programs, which serve people with memory loss and Parkinsons.
