Leila and Marley

I admit I have been a bit lazy and have not updated my blog with the past two drawings I have done. No more procrastinating, here they are. This portrait of two little dogs I did this summer (and I didn’t get around to posting it until winter!) These two dogs belong to a very important army couple we knew while my husband and I were stationed in Hawaii. General Tate was my husband’s commander who he deployed with all 3 times! His wife played important roles back home for all us army wives. They adore their dog Leila and always took her everywhere. When they moved out of Hawaii they got another dog Marley. They are so cute together and I was so pleased to have been asked to create this work of art for their home.

Pet Portrait – Blind Cat

This is the final scan of a portrait I created earlier this year. If you look closely at the eyes you can see one is a little different than the other. The cat is blind. You might think this was a challenge, but it was actually an exciting and unique opportunity.

While drawing this, I had a newborn at home so it was very challenging to find time to myself. Luckily the customer did not have an exact deadline and I finished it in a month. Now my baby is a little older and I have precious time to work on portraits once she goes to sleep which is at a predictable time each night! (knock on wood)

Upon my sister’s request, I made these for her as a Christmas present. I love making these hand-cut silhouettes. They are so quick and easy to create! Contact me if you are interested in having some made of your family! rita.rod.frazee@gmail.com.
