"Georgia on My Mind"
9 x 12
Oil on Raymar Panel
Sometimes you have to take a break from a 30 in 30 series of portraits and just paint something else!!!
When I began my 30 in 30 series I received a phone call from a dear friend and wonderful artist, Kathy Cousart...click her name to visit her website...ohno... I digress...
I received a phone call from Kathy asking about my series and encouraging me...cheering me on and giving me confidence. It really meant so much to me. When my brain was muddled with the next 6 x 6 portrait and I needed a break I decided to paint Georgia, Kathy's adorable puppy and name it "Georgia on My Mind" because she was...on my mind that is. It was fun to play with the whites and the bright red Georgia Bull Dawg shirt.
I sent Kathy a picture of this painting and she loved it...I am so very happy to be able to send her a small token of my appreciation for the kick in the pants I needed to get started!
My attempt to make the world smile, one painting at a time, is working.
Now back to the 30 in 30 series!!! Break is OVER!
