Since It's Raining Cats and Dogs ...


12 x 18.5 cm.
I'm not sure if I want to let him/her stand alone, or have some sort of almost-not-there background.


Still in progress. This one is a little more painterly.

 I found a cute cartoon of "raining cats and dogs", but I just read the small print, and found I would be infringing on copywrite. So, imagine the rain ... pelting down ...

Kim, Trigger's owner, and I finally got together yesterday. She loved the painting, and the portrait is sold ... finally. :) 


I really darkened the background. As a result, Trig looked quite cold, so I warmed up his face and neck with some pinks and oranges. DONE!

  3. Good news on Trigger! You worked hard on getting him just right.

    The 'Sting' looks quite stingy ... lots of rain on the West coast!

  8. Congratulations Kathryn, I'm glad Kim liked the painting! I like the expression 'it's raining cats and dogs'. In Dutch we would say 'it's raining pipe stems'. I like the cats and dogs better. :)

  11. Awesome job on trigger! I think such paintings look more real than any photorealistic work! The two insect works are also lovely. Are they your new experiments?

  12. Eek! Bugs!! What a great subject. I'm scared of wasps so they're not my first choice of subjects, but you've done a great job! As for the horse, wow! He looks absolutely amazing :0))

    the horse is so real. I have no idea how you painted.
    Very mysterious colour.

  16. I can't believe I almost missed the grand finale of Trigger - and he is just beautiful! I am sure his owner must be thoroughly thrilled - congratulations on a job well done and a successful commission!
