I’ve been sick for what seems to be most of spring. I’ve been dealing with bronchitis now for about a month, and I’ve been exhausted. But, I’m finally starting to feel a little better, and even had a chance to get out and do some photography. I have lots of new work to share! But, before I get to that, I wanted to show off some pictures of my pets. My cat, Ripley, and my snake, Hissi, both recently turned 1 year old and I love to see how much they have changed in their first year.
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!
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.

I finished my digital painting of a Cheetah portrait. It is another artwork to add to my animal series. I have a lot more planned, and my next one will be a sea turtle. Although I have several projects that I need to work on other than just my animal series of artworks, I really do enjoy painting animals and hope to have a wide variety by the time I’m finished.
