So now I've got a dining room wall that looks decidedly NOT elegant, but more on the whimsical side. (Of course, this sort of thing fits in very well with the cat door I showed you in my last post, doesn't it?)
The window frame cuts off some of Buddy's face. (My husband would tell you that's really for the best, considering the ugly mug on our equine friend.) But let me show you Buddy in full.
I'm not quite finished with the painting yet, but we must go back home to NH today and regroup/re-pack. We're flying down to VA tomorrow to spend the weekend babysitting for G-Man while his mom and dad enjoy a much-anticipated getaway for their second anniversary. So I'll be tweaking this homage to Buddy at a later date. But for now, it will have to do as is.
The best thing about this painting is that if I decide that it's just too ridiculous, I can always paint right over it.
