Beautiful Ruby

Beautiful Ruby, 2021, digital oil paint

This painting of Ruby, painted in colours that suit her mum’s house and style, will be a perfect reminder of a beautiful, loving companion who has now passed. This one was a challenge, using new digital brushes on my iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil, but I do love a challenge! More importantly, I have achieved something I rarely do: I picked up and finished something that I had lost impetus on. I lost my mojo, and subsequently my belief that I could finish. I’m a cat person, and dogs are .. well .. just different. However, this Lockdown 6.0 I challenged myself to finish some projects that I have let fall to the wayside. So, I did.
