Painting on canvas has never been something that I am good at. Give me a piece of furniture and I’ll go to town, but canvas… that seems to be a whole other story. I am always in complete awe though of anyone that can paint on canvas because of the incredible detail they can achieve.
I have gotten to know a lovely, local women over the past few years and her talent blows me away! She has to spend at lot of her time, in the winter, indoors because of medical reasons so she paints and makes stained glass to pass the time.
Whenever I get a chance to see her, she is always asking about my little four-legged photobomber. She loves to see pictures of him at work photobombing and gets such a kick out of his cuteness 🙂 Of course, I am always happy to oblige! Not long ago, she asked if she could have a picture of him so I gave her the one above.
I love this picture.
He always tips his head to the side when you are talking to him… like he is so intent on your story that he doesn’t want to miss a syllable.
After not seeing her for quite a while this winter, I was able to see her again last week and she gave me this… I just couldn’t believe it! I was (and still am) in complete awe of what she was able to capture on canvas. My photo does not begin to do her painting justice but the details when you see it person are just absolutely amazing. When she gave it to me I was speechless. I just stared at the canvas and felt like I was seeing him in person.What an incredible gift! I will forever cherish this painting and not only because of the subject matter but also because of her incredible talent.
How someone can capture the essence and nature of a living being with just a little paint and a piece of canvas boggles my mind. It doesn’t matter whether paint is on paper, a canvas or a piece of furniture… the power it holds will never cease to leave me in awe.
