My Interpretation of a Primitive Portrait by Belknap

I have been wanting to do this for some time...
My rendition of a Child's Primitive Portrait, this one done by 
Zedekiah Belknap(1781-1858) ~ 'Girl in White with Cat'.
This is my first try at portraits and hope to be doing others.
I have been getting the itch to do more painting ... so here it is,
8" x 10" canvas board using acrylics and pencil.
Not sure about framing...maybe a faux graining technique...maybe not!

Now I have to get back to my PS Santa Ornament with 2 down ... am on my 3rd with 5 more to go.  
For me it is a slow process, but I have also been under the weather with a touch of bronchitis.  Doing much better but still have the awful nagging dry tickle of a cough.  
Anyways, I do get bored doing the same thing for too long, so thought I'd take the time to switch gears and paint ... I did! Now back to my counted X-stitch as I have a schedule that must be met by Christmas.

Thanks for visiting ... Have a great weekend and 4th of JULY too.

My Puppy Love, Kodiak * another Snow Dog

Just came from Robin's, 'Cranky Crow' Blog,
checking in on her 'Snow Dog'.  
I was compelled to share today's photo of my 'Kody Bear'
(yes, he has many nick names of endearment) 
resting with his toy 'Beaver'.  
He is my handsome brute at 114 lbs, and furry son.

Taking one of his daily walks...
Rather, he is taking Dad for the walk...
You can't see Dad cause he is steering the golf cart - hahaha!
