2 Big Cats & a Bird...

 I was fairly busy on these 2 guys. A little strange for me to work on canvases smaller than usual, but all good fun. I wanted to get back on another Africa theme.. 

Then I got distracted, and at present on the ole easel is the beginnings of a hummingbird. I hope it works out. I hope I do it justice.  

The weather is so very hot, that painting has taken a little back seat. It's the sort of weather to do nothing but melt. I do aim to have the little bird complete in the next few days though.

Pretty thrilled that this big guy sold on Saatchi. I had almost resigned myself to never getting a sale on Saatchi, due to the serious amount of art on there (I think the term "saturated" is frequently banded about?). Even more thrilled that he will be making his way to Denver, Colorado. The Coos seem to always get a bit of attention, so it's time to get busy and start a new one.

I also finished Bo some weeks ago and his owner took delivery of the painting. It was particularly poignant, as poor Bo was put to sleep a few days after I completed the painting due to illness. Cracking pooch that I was honoured to paint. 

 In coming weeks I'm going to be working on some oil paintings. Figurative stuff. Portraits and the like. Quite looking forward to getting messy 😊
