Kylie


This is a work in progress of a good dog friend, Kylie.  She is a sweet Australian Shepherd and is owned by Jim Ginney, my good friend and painting framer.  Kylie is the official studio greeter and it is such fun to see her on my many runs to the framing studio.  I still have to add a few changes to Kylie's portrait but the likeness is there so I am pretty happy with the painting for now.  I will be adding the final changes in a day or two.  Meeting the sweet Kylie has made for, "A Painting Day".

You are invited to:
Ruth Andre-Solo Show
Gallery Show at the Gem N I Gallery - 815 Sutter Street, Folsom, CA.

Ruth, Kylie is beautiful. Love her intense stare and wonder what she is scoping out. Her face is sweet. I can see why you enjoy seeing her at the framers!

Kylie is so beautiful. She has lots of different colors in her fur which makes painting more interesting. And I love those sad eyes!! Well done, Ruth.

You captured her spirit, I think. We have two Australian shepherds, and they are wonderful dogs.

Gorgeous portrait of Kylie. The eyes say it all... and the strokes of lavender in her pretty mottled fur add a nice touch.

So expressive and beautiful, Ruth... And to think, you've captured him on a 6 x 6 canvas !! (we used to have an Australian Shepherd, too) great dogs, except they shed a lot ! ha !

Your animal paintings are truly portraits of very distinct individuals.
I feel as though I know quite a bit about Kylie's personality and vibe from your lovely painting of her.
