Last 2020 Commission Reveal – Wood Slice.
We are already one week into the new year and I am still looking back to commissions in 2020. Please indulge me a few more times. I had several requests for pet portraits on wood slices in the last weeks before Christmas including some secret gifts I was asked not to reveal until 2021.
Digby was one secret gift picked up a few days before Christmas.
Ta Da…here’s Digby!
Digby is painted on Canadian birch sourced from an Ontario supplier. The wood is kiln dried and measures approximately 3 inches in diameter.
Once the portrait is completed, the slice is then varnished, usually with a high gloss varnish to brighten the colours. Even though I am painting on wood, I still use the very best acrylics, Liquitex or Golden Fluid or Heavy Body acrylics for each commission.
I will soon publish a lovely white cat I painted last fall for a client who ordered her Christmas gifts early. Be on the lookout for Boo!
Also coming up, another pet portrait finished before the end of the 2020 for a repeat client who loves Schapendoes or Dutch Sheepdogs.
One year in art…
I love painting florals and a few pieces are available for sale. If you see anything you like, do contact me. No obligation whatsoever! In truth, my studio is starting to look like a hoarder’s hideout. ?
Looking ahead in 2021.
Already I have several commissions in the works for 2021, some on canvas, and others on wood slices. If you would like a portrait painted by me, please contact me here and I will get back to you as soon as possible. As of publication date of this post, I will have work until March or April but I can fit in wood slice portraits in between the larger commissions.
Giveaways in 2021.
I have one giveaway for On the Wings of a Dove and the winning name will be drawn tomorrow, January 8, at 8 pm EST. You must leave a comment under the painting either on Instagram or on Facebook to be eligible.
Or leave a message below in the comment box if you would like your name to be entered. The portrait will be mailed flat along with a matte so it is ready for framing.
