It’s that time of year when people start to think of ideas for Christmas gifts. A pet portrait is a great idea for a unique gift, and now is the time to get in your order so I have plenty of time to finish it for Christmas. Contact me for information, if you are interested!
This is my newest artwork, an animal portrait of an Arctic Fox. I have plans to eventually paint big scenes and landscapes with animals, but for now I just love painting portraits, both human and animal. This little fox was so adorable, how could I not paint him! I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of portraits. I also made a video of me doing this digital painting, so I’ll post that later for those interested in watching the process.

It is my opinion that there aren’t that many things cuter than a kitten.
I had been taking photographs with my macro lens, and when I finished what I was working on I started taking pictures of my kitten when she actually slowed down from playing and gave me an opportunity to shoot her portrait. The kitten was always on the move, so I didn’t even think about switching my lens. I think the macro lens actually worked out pretty well for this shot. I like the details of the nose, fur and her eye, but also like the shallow depth of field that gives this cat portrait a bit more of an artistic flavor.

This is a digital art painting of a leopard resting her head on her legs as she tries to nap.
