Description I created this special little gem, on a premium quality canvas panel. I always use professional grade Golden brand acrylic paints. The colors in my paintings are very rich and vibrant. This painting is of a special Pembroke Welsh Corgi family, out for a walk in the snow on Christmas Eve. The Christmas moon looms in the night sky, and adds a blue haze to the freshly fallen snow. Against the backdrop of the moon....the corgi puppies are amazed to see Santa but instead of reindeer...three trusty magical corgis pull his sleigh. I added pearl sparkles to the moon, snow and sky, on the scan these appear to be just gray matter... but in the actual painting, they are MAGICAL!
Valerie Brock, LINWOOD, NORTH CAROLINA Member Since November 2006 Artist Statement I am a self taught artist, with a special interest in dogs. I work primarily in acrylics. Most recently, I have enjoyed learning to work with colored pencil sketching. I also enjoy sculpting polymer figures. My subject matter ranges through various breeds of dogs and cats, as well as children's portraits. While I occasionally branch out to other dog breeds, I always return to my favorite subjects The Old English Sheepdog and Welsh Pembroke Corgi. One as big as the other is small! An animal lover at heart, I seek to bring a slice of humor and joy into my art, that reflects the unmitigated happiness our children and pets bring into our lives. So enjoy a slice of shaggy humor today and light up your life!
Most of my original art is sold on ebay. All of my paintings are original works of pet art, straight from my imagination. My art is in private collections throughout the United States and many countries around the world. I feel that whenever I paint a piece, I leave a piece of my heart in that painting. I paint on anything and everything, both old and new. I think that painting is such a beautiful way to influence the world for good and adding beauty to everyday objects brings a bit of whimsy and fun to every task. Painting is My Passion.
