Beau and Chester... in oil
I got a fun surprise today when I checked my email and had a message from my new blogging friend, Pattie Wall at Dust Off the Butterfly, telling me she had just completed a painting of my donkey boys, Beau and Chester.
Pattie does beautiful paintings of all types of subject matter, but most touching to me is how she depicts her animals. It is striking how she is able to capture the eyes and spirit of her animals so well.
Pattie had asked my permission a few weeks ago to use some critter photos from my blog to paint, but I didn't know which one she would use. Until today.
You can see the in-process painting of Beau and Chester on Pattie's site by clicking: here. The final version is located here.
