I love my dogs as I’m sure many of you do to. I probably have thousands of photos of them sitting on my digital camera, on my computer, on an external hard drive, and probably a handful on print. It’s sad that I don’t have too many printed images of my dogs.
Sandy Taylor “Colorful Impressionist”
I recently received an email from a Sandy Taylor a Sawdust Festival Fine Art Festival Artist. She told me about her love for painting and pets and her intereste in fulfilling both those passions by painting pet portraits. Immediately, I thought of my readers and how they might enjoy a wonderful portrait of their loving pet(s). Here’s a short blurb about Sandy’s painting straight from her website:
Many of her pieces are painted plein air in Laguna Beach & nearby Newport Beach, as well as throughout the states and abroad, primarily France & England. She is known as a “colorful impressionist” by both critics & clients, who describe her work as happy, fresh, mystical & magical with a childlike vulnerability.
Here are samples of her work:
