Pet Portraits

It's been awhile since my last post....been busy trying to wrap up my art class semester, celebrating birthday parties, our 15-year anniversary, mother's day teas, field trips and helping with school projects. Whew! I don't know about you, but this time of the year is so busy for me.

I just had to do a post to show off the end of the year project for my advanced classes. These kids are 2nd-4th grade, and most have taken art from me for two or more years. I was so impressed by their finished works. I did allow them to use a cheap projector I have- just to get the basic outline of their pet shape and to block in values. I wanted the lesson to focus more on values and painting instead of drawing. These took three 1-hour classes to complete. They are done in acrylics on a 16 x 20 stretched canvas. I'm taking this summer off so maybe I'll have time to catch up posting the rest of this year's projects. Happy Mother's Day!


  1. These are fantastic!I was thinking they were done by much older children!


I get so excited when I receive a comment and I do read each and everyone of them! I wish I had time to respond to each one personally. Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you will be back soon!
