Mama's Shadow

8"x10" acrylic on canvas board

I was happy to squeeze in some painting time this week. This was such a great subject. I made an effort to keep this painting very loose and let more of the burnt siena show through from the background. I am happy with the results and may even have to do a larger painting of this subject someday.


  1. This is a great painting! I love how you got the animals posed together in a family portrait. Were they really standing that way? Or did you compose it that way back at the studio? Everything is so nicely done. Congratulations!

    1. Thank you Katherine! They were standing that way. I did modify the background a bit.
