Peaceful Easy Feeling

Apr 9, 2022

This week, I would like to share a painting of someone I love! Here are progression shots of my painting, “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” oil, 12×12. The two subjects are close to my heart. My nephew Bobby and his wonderful dog Cauli. He and she are a pair. She loves to snuggle with him. This image caught them both in a peaceful mood. Painting the light coming from behind them was a challenge, but so beautifully lit their “togetherness.”

What images convey peaceful togetherness in your life? Indelible memories of a happy time? Peaceful easy feelings?


Thank you for allowing me to share my work with you. It is a privilege and an honor. Hope you find some peaceful togetherness this beautiful Spring season.

I’ll be back next week to share what I’ve been painting.
