Acrylic on canvas
Hailey's portrait was done as part of one of my
occasional *Portrait Marathons. Hailey's portrait has a retro
feel to it that I was surprised by, but quite like. I can see her
smiling out on an advertisement from the 30s, probably for something supposed to make you happy.
*That's when I announce a first-come, first-served
sign up, and paint small portraits of each pet as quickly as I can (not
always that quickly!), until the alloted number has been reached or I
run out of canvasses or time. There is always a donation made out
of the proceeds for these marathons to a pet welfare organization I
choose ahead of time.
