I was commissioned by Renee Finney of Finney Fiber Farms in California(http://www.finneysfiberfarm.com ) to paint one of her alpacas. I got started on the 24 x 30 inch alpaca portrait and could see what a fun painting this was going to be! So I decided, weather permitting, to take it with me on Aug. 1st to Canton’s next ‘First Friday’. So if you happen to be in Canton’s arts district, in the vicinity of the Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild look for me. I will be the one painting the close cropped face of a giant alpaca!
Renee was so kind to share with me other photos of her animals which I am planning on painting in preparation for Maize Valley’s Wine and Art Festival in Hartville on Sept. 27. There will be fiber artists demonstrating spinning and weaving so I want to take some of my fiber animal art.
