"In Memory of Buffy" my persian cat. Impressionist oil painting on wood panel / 18"x24" / NotForSale / Artist Collection

A fond memory of Buffy on a hot, hazy summer day.

She was cooling under an antique wagon at the edge of the woods. Oh what a sweet girl she was.... a real lady. I have already begun a new painting of this as a 12"x12" as I just adore this painting that I did in 1984..... and will really enjoy creating it again..... in 2006. She truly touched my heart.

Painting Daily Oil Sketches by Carolyn Hietala

I have recently begun a blog "Painting Daily Oil Sketches."

The focus will be on small studies in oil and contain a step-by-step journel not intended for art instruction but as a document of my personal "On the Job Training" learning experiences in oil painting. The sessions are kept short as the time working on them is only during rest breaks from current works.
My goal is that each new painting will bring me the satisfaction in knowing that I gave it my best.
Upon completion of each painting I will post the final here in my Lifeoncanvas blog.
