Carolyn McDonald: "Crystal"

Carolyn McDonald, "Crystal" is 10" x 8" oil on board.
Crystal belonged to a close friend.  She died last year and they requested that I paint her.  The color of her hair and its texture was a lot of fun to paint.

"Luna in the Morning"
10" x 8" oil on hard board
A great photo makes all the difference in the world!  My good friend and artist, Phyllis Gibson, has given me permission to paint any photos of her cats.  When she posted this one, I knew right away, that I could paint a beautiful painting from the great light, medium, and dark values.  Luna's pose is also theatrical.  A judge from a recent exhibition said that my portraits have the elusive feel of a 1940's starlit photo shoot.  I want to capture that same sense of mystery, strength, and style with my animal portraits.  I have succeeded with Luna.  Phyllis, maybe she will become famous!
