guy had just 3 legs.
I believe he was born that way. His life was not easy
and he lost his battle not too long ago. The owner was very sad to of course seeing wee Ajax struggle and suffer so, but missed him terribly when he was gone. A friend commissioned me to paint her a portrait of Ajax. I couldn't decide which photo to work from so i did both. His sweet sole was so evident in the photos they provided. These are both watercolour. 12" X 17".
My studio space in the basement of an Art Gallery. Today it is wet and rainy, a good day to paint.
I have a class coming in this morning but would rather be painting! :) Oh well, this afternoon is open and i have several on the go which need to be finished. A couple of upcoming shows to get ready for and new ideas percolating. There just is not enough time in the day! Ahhh, the life of a painter. I thought years ago it would be glamorous, with openings and gala events, whiling away the hours in coffee shops and wine bars with fellow artists, requests for appearances and free flights to resorts. Such a fantasy dashed by long hours alone in a basement. I love it! Would not have it any other way.
Hope your day is going well and there are many new colours appearing in your life. Happy painting, all!
