I alluded to it in my last post, but Nate decided this year that we should dress LC up for Halloween. If you remember my post from a couple years ago, we learned that cats don’t really like wearing costumes.
But Nate didn’t care about LC’s feelings, he only cared about his own enjoyment (don’t worry, I rewarded her with treats for all the torture she endured). And so in preparation for Halloween, Nate bought three costumes and he’d like you lovely blog readers to decide which she should wear:
**I highly encourage all of my cat-loving blog friends to partake in humiliating your cat and posting it on your blog as well (hint hint Rachael, Natalie, Pamela)! Coordinating background drawings are optional ;) **
On a semi-related animal note, I just finished my latest pet portrait for my coworker. She had seen my other portraits and asked if I could paint her miniature Schnauzer, Scottie.
Scottie passed away some years ago, but she told me he was her favorite dog. She wanted me to reproduce a photo of him she had that she loves. Unfortunately the photo was pre-digital photography and was a bit dark and grainy so it was hard to work with. I decided that I could best do a smaller portrait since it involved less detail, so this is my first 6″ square portrait.
If you’re interested in having me paint your furry friend, send me an email and I can give you more info!
And finally, on a completely unrelated note, our wedding had a little blurb in Ocala Style Magazine (Ocala is in Florida)! I had been asked by our photographer to submit photos to them but never heard anything back. My parents live in Florida, though, and apparently my mom’s friend who was at our wedding was flipping thru the magazine at a doctor’s office and saw our blurb! So random :)
Our wedding was also featured on the blog GreenWeddingShoes back in March for those who missed it! You can check out the amazing video Nate made for the wedding there :)
