This was the picture I sent her to use as an inspiration for the portrait. Did she capture him perfectly or what? This photograph was taken at Christmas hence the red and green sweater.
I tried to get a picture of Oliver this morning, but he wasn’t the least bit interested. This sideways photograph was the best angle I could capture. He is a scary little dog and runs whenever he sees my camera.
Lesli has been a busy beaver. Recently, Lesli participated in
Young House Love’s Richmond show house. You can see more
photos of her work in the house here.
I love her abstract too! Isn’t this one fabulous?
If you aren’t familiar with Lesli’s work make sure to check out her paintings here. As you can see, Lesli’s work isn’t limited to pet portraits. She can paint anything!!
When I emailed Lesli yesterday to send her a quick “thank you”, here’s what
she replied when I asked what she had been up to,
“I am in the middle of the one of the most exciting and daunting jobs I have ever gotten, I was hired to do artwork for the NEW UVA Childrens hospital!! I doing HUGE pieces, like 60″ x 48″ and one triptych measuring 100″ x 48″ !!! Opening June 13!”u
