Blogs,Cats and other thoughts

Hi-Again,it has been awhile since I too this time to talk. Life is so busy! I just completed this portrait of Jezabel and I really enjoyed painting her. She [and me]will be featured in a local blog about women in my town,Victoria.All very exciting as it is nice to be noticed locally.I have been painting on canvas lately using acrylic gouache. I am finding this medium more and more to my liking and have finally made it work for me the way water based gouache does.I am on Facebook now as well but again-life is so busy-it is hard to keep up with it. Anyone that wants to be my Facebook friend-feel free to send a friend request. I do try to put my Etsy listings there, I hope everyone is enjoying spring. The blossoms are out and the air has the scent of them here on the coast. Bye for now,CarlaPortrait of Jezabel

Portraits and other thoughts

I just wanted to share-one of the reasons I enjoy the pet portrait end of what I do is the messages that I get from people who are so happy with their portrait. This is a message that I just received tonight-Hi Carla, I gave Sean his portrait and he loves it! And so do I, you captured his expression and personality perfectly. We can't stop looking at it. Thank you so much! My mother in law sent pictures of it to all her friends so you may be bombarded with emails for more portraits. Now we just have to decide where to hang it! Once again, thank you, Denise, Sean and CheebusPortrait of Cheebus
