I was asked to paint a trio of family pets. What was unique about this commission was that the owner wanted a contemporary style painting. I like a challenge and I love doing “different” in my paintings. The dog in the center is very sick which was the reason for the original outreach for me to paint.

It took time to complete this assignment. Grocery shopping, storms, lawn care, house cleaning the list of stuff I have to do that take me away from my art. The list always feels endless. I am a caregiver for my husband and so I am never without something to do.

My art keeps me grounded and gives me great joy especially when I’m painting for others. This was fun to paint. The cat looks at the dogs with such contempt. The owner said that is exactly how the cat views the two dogs she lives with. She tolerates and torments. A typical cat if you ask me.

So I hope you enjoy this trio of a family as much as I do. ❤️
