Here is the finish for Kylie. If you check back to the last post you will not see big changes in the painting but you will see a few. I lightened the background slightly and made Kylie's muzzle just a little thicker and added some highlights to her coat. These changes enhanced Kylie's likeness. The painting is a surprise for Jim, Kylie's owner and the unveiling is tomorrow. Let's hope it has been, "A Painting Day" to remember.
I received word today that two of my landscape paintings will be showing at the coming Yellowstone Art Musuem's 43rd Annual Art Auction. The opening art reception will January 27, 2011 at the Museum.
