It's my desire to capture the unique quality of each individual person and animal that motivates my art. My aim in painting a portrait is to first still myself, to begin to truly see the subject of the portrait, an individual unlike any other. The same applies in my landscape painting - each landscape has its unique colours and qualities of light and shape that say it is this place and no other.
Portrait of Blue
My Boy Blue! The handsomest boyee! You have captured him so perfectly...right down to the little chesthair swirly! Moira! You've outdone yourself and I can't thank you enough for all the happiness we've gotten from this amazing work of art!
Portrait of Wiggy
I love this painting of our beloved Wiggy! You have beautifully captured his likeness and presence. The eyes, the multi shades of colour in his fur, the detail with his paws, whiskers, ears, and the unique shape of his head! In short you nailed it!!!
Portrait of Lady Arwen
Oh my gosh, it's perfect! You are brilliant! I miss that puppy so much. It's absolutely beautiful. It's her!
Portrait of Furgus
It's absolutely brilliant!!!! Makes me smile right out loud! I really just love it and you caught his face magnificently!
Portrait of Sudi
A very big thank you for the precious painting of Sudi, Moira! I love it so much - it really captures her 'spirit beyond cat' - but wrapped up in her furry body I can pat. There is a knowing look in her eyes, and I am so grateful to have this treasure!!!
