Hello! Just putting up a small collage of some of the portraits I have done over the past year or so. I am going to be putting up a post on my Etsy Shop for purchasing commissioned portraits, and I wanted to group a small collection for easy viewing as samples. So here they are. More portraits may be viewed by clicking in the “post tag” section on my sideline here under the headings “Portrait” and “Pastels”. Enjoy!
And also…I almost forgot….I will be putting up the final portrait of Aster, since sending it off to Kevin Williams as a gift. He finally received it the day before Christmas. So much had gone on that week, and things got put on hold. We were waiting for things to get somewhat back to normal, and now I think we can finally share it with you. Please watch for it in a day or so. Thank you. Cheryl
Yes, I finally finished Max’s picture, and when I was done…I felt a little sad. It felt like I could actually touch him…and his eyes are just how I remember them…like looking into your soul.
So here he is, and hope you like him. If you would like me to do a pastel portrait of “your” pet or someone you know, please e-mail me and I can give you all the info on price and to what I would need as a picture to use as a reference. They make great gifts for people for Christmas, especially if you don’t know what to get for someone, and the portraits last a lifetime! My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. You may also go to my portfolio site at http://www.cherylmcnulty.com, where I have samples of portraits I have done with the originals to compare. Any design you see on this site can be made into a card, print, canvas print or whatever. I just take a design and send it through Zazzle, and make anything…so just ask and I will see what I can do.
I am also just starting to do watercolor pictures of angels with cats/dogs/pets, for those who have passed away. They can be comforting to the owners, I think. I can take the picture of the pet with added wings and paint it to look just like the pet with an angel. I will put up a picture of one asap. Thank you and hope you like my Max! He’s on my wall right now! 🙂
This is a picture I just completed of my sister’s dog, Layla. Layla is a Springer Spaniel that could have been a show dog, but she has a slight underbite, which makes her adorable! You can kind of see it here. This was a gift and I love doing these as gifts, I guess, because the pressure isn’t on to finish any picture at any given time. You can give it when you are completely satisfied, and it’s a gift! No one will ever give the person anything like it! It’s so personal.
I hope you like it and I plan to do more dogs and pets and maybe…just maybe…start commissioning them. Ooooo, that’s a big step, but I just may be ready. We’ll see. In any case…enjoy!
