My latest commission, Tiger, 16″ x 20″.
As I approached the glass front doors, his imposing bark and large frame made me wonder if my offer to take photos was a mistake. Perhaps she had a shot of him which would work for his painting. I grew up with German Shepards, but this guy was imposing. She shooed him away and I entered cautiously, clutching my camera bag.
It wasn’t necessary. After a sweet greeting with much tail wagging, he plopped in his favorite spot in the kitchen. I could see the painting before I’d even finished taking pictures.
While this beautiful creature has the size and looks of a warrior, he is a pussycat. Tiger is the perfect name.
Thank you Karen S. for your commitment to the arts. Thank you Tiger. Your sweet, bright, and gentle nature was a pleasure to paint and a reminder that we should withhold our judgements until we can see the light.
