My Latest Pet Portrait
This is my latest pet portrait of my own fuzzy-faced friend Walter. He's in his favorite place to chill out--a carpet covered tunnel which is actually tan in color. I used my "artist license" to express what a fun and playful beast Walter really is!
I also used a process that I've been experimenting with called whole cloth quilting. I paint the entire fabric first on one piece of cloth, then I add my stitching. This piece measures 39"x34".
