Today’s entry in the Friday Art Cat comes from Jackie Silver:
Swisher, commissioned by Anne & Frank H. who said, “It’s so lifelike we want to pet it!”
Acrylic pet paintings are extremely popular, with good reason. Our pets are like our children! Many people who know me are not aware that I am an artist – I have painted with oils since age 11. I recently started doing pet paintings using acrylics and now even people I don’t know are contacting me to paint their pets! It’s exciting to suddenly change direction at this point in my life, but I have done it before, lol.
Sort of like Barbie, I have had many careers, including FM radio DJ, advertising copywriter, public relations executive, creator of the radio segment, CyberBabe with What’s Hot on the Net (1995!), voice over artist, television correspondent, on-air guest for shopping TV, beauty expert, author, entrepreneur and, now, professional artist.
