"Cali" 6x6 Original Oil on Museum Quality Panel Private Collection
As a kid, I always told everyone that I wanted to be a Veterinarian when I grew up. As a young adult, I finally fulfilled my dream (well, somewhat). I worked as a Vet Assistant while in graduate school. What I quickly figured out was that I was much too clumsy to master the skills needed to become a vet! I spilled things, got my hands dirty, and did NOT master the art of precision. A clumsy surgeon/doctor...NOT how most people would describe their ideal Vet, huh?!?!
Well, I still love animals and have found that I love painting them just as much! And with paint, it's ok to get a little messy :).
This painting is of my dog Cali. My first adopted pet as an adult. She would sometimes come to work with me at the Vet's office. I loved her dearly, especially her sweet smile and soulful eyes. I miss her still, but painting this brought back such happy memories of my sweet girl!
If you would like your favorite memory or pet captured in paint, please send me a note about a commission:)!
