Esper, oil, 12x12

I am working on this painting of Esper, our sweet torby. As I said earlier, she has been diagnosed with fibrosarcoma. She is putting up a great fight. It has been six months now since the first tumor was removed. She now has 3 new tumors. She looks me in the eyes and she asks me "Why". I can only tell her that the drug companies want all the money and don't care who they harm... cats or people.

Here are photos of my start. Not finished yet but soon to be. Sweet, Innocent Esper.

Grumpy Bunny #19, oil, 6x6

Number 19 is Lesley's bunny Monkey.... a tiny little thing. It is very difficult, I have discovered, to paint black bunnies!


Grumpy Bunnies #18, oil, 6x6

Number 18 is another Dutch bunny. This photo is a bit fuzzy... I'll try to do better tomorrow and post a new pic.

Small Treasures Show, November 2010

Thanks, everyone, who attended the November Small Treasures show at Oregon Society of Artists. The show runs until December 3rd. You can still see all the wonderful paintings.... over 500! The gallery is open everyday except Mondays, from 1pm to 4pm. The address: 2185 SW Park Place, Portland Oregon, just two blocks off of West Burnside. http://www.oregonsocietyofartists.com/

I sold all twelve of my "Grumpy Bunny" paintings. I had several people voiced disappointment they didn't get to buy one. So, I will be doing commissions, as they bunnies are very poplar... that's a good thing. Size is 6"x6". Contact me if you are interested in a painting. lorrainespaintings@gmail.com
