Day 20 ~ Painting a Day Challenge

Saras Doggie

Day 20 and today I focused on a girl named Josie Wales! She passed quietly at home the day before thanksgiving this year and her family wanted something to hang on their wall as a memorial. The photo I worked with was fitting for a memorial painting as the snow backdrop, to me, looked and seemed like an opportunity to surround her by light. She was a beautifully interesting subject to paint as she is mostly white, with a pale background and small splashes of color in her eyes and on her coat. I found the subtle coloring  tranquil and calming to paint. Thank you Sara Lowe-Bouchard for submitting her photo for me to paint in this daily challenge.
