I am kind of sick of jewelry at the moment. Time to talk about painting or knitting for awhile.
I was looking through my photos and I came across some pictures of some of my older work–some of which are long since sold and I’d forgotten all about them. Let’s take a walk down memory lane, shall we?
The painting above is of my friend Theresa’s dog, Ling. It was, I think, the third portrait I’d ever painted and it remains probably my best work to date.
This painting, called Stuart Dreams of Peace is another favorite. It was donated to PAWS/LA for their annual Pet Art auction a few years ago. The unfortunate part of the story is that about a year ago I got an email from the woman who purchased it, saying she loved it and was so happy she bought it. But she referred to it as Kramer Dreams of Peace. I wrote back and thanked her, then said it was actually called Stuart Dreams of Peace, and that PAWS/LA must’ve made a mistake when they labled the art at the auction. She replied that the title was actually written on the canvas in back of the painting (which is something I routinely do), which means I’m the one who made the mistake. Oops. Well, they look a lot alike–I guess sometimes I can’t even tell them apart.
The painting below is called The Walk and it hangs in my living room.
