Celebrity Pets


Being a animal lover I love seeing pets on blogs who are adored by their owners... In December I thought I'd try painting a few to see if maybe I might like to do pet portraits... I don't!!


But thought you might like to see the ones I finished with the photos I worked with... On top is Pat Winter's Angell. I had to combine 2 photos to get the whole head. What a sweetie!


Next is Cathy Kizerian's cat "Boomer" whom I met in person last winter. Lots of personality this one....


Last is "Brat" a beloved cat recently lost by Nicki. Painting a dog or cat is not a problem but trying to capture that animal's personality is..
Now that I've all that behind me I am stitching , stitching, and stitching...
Don't neglect to check out all the new buttons I uploaded onto my Etsy... now that it is all spiffed up!!

OMG! What a wonderful surprise! I was just reading about your buttons on Pat's Blog so had to come right over to see what you were up to! OH my precious Brat! Thank you so much Gerry - she is just gorgeous as are Cathy and Pat's furbabies.

Gerry these animal buttons are so realistic they look like pictures you have taken and glued on the buttons. You are one talented lady.

Adorable! You are very good, even if you don't like to do it.

I love the pet portraits, but I can imagine why they'd be terribly difficult to do.

Your name badge is now perfect. I agree about the black ribbon; the pink is much better!
