More Barb Plevan

Portrait of Penny Dobson's Corgi Ellie.  So Cute!

Barb's cat George, one of her favorite models.

 My first purchase of an original Barb Plevan was of this little rabbit.  He's even better in person!

Here are a few more of my favorites by Barb Plevan.  You can find her Etsy shop here.  Take a look, you'll be glad you did!

Portrait of Gnat and Tater by Barb Plevan

This past December Paul surprised me for my birthday by commissioning this portrait of our cats by Barb Plevan.  I had long been an admirer of Barb's work and had already purchased two of her paintings so you can imagine how thrilled I was when I received this one!  Barb's work is truly amazing and it is unbelievable how well she has captured both their personalities.  If you know someone out there who needs a portrait of a beloved pet (or pets) I would highly recommend that you get Barb to do it,  I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Pictures of Cats and Other Things

I was very excited to finally get a new phone.  Not because I disliked my old phone, but because the new phone has a really good camera.  In fact that's why I chose the phone I did, it had the best camera.  Who cares about the actual phone?  Not me.  I have become a little obsessed with my camera.(See, I don't even refer to it as my phone...)  I've downloaded some of the most popular apps and some not so popular.  Maybe it's because my background is in photography and I loved everything about the whole process that I am so enamored with my new device.  There's something so fascinating to me about having a darkroom, a slide copier, infrared film, polaroid film, sepia toner, (I could go on and on) all in the palm of your hand.  Much like in my darkroom days, I can spend hours and hours manipulating photos on my phone.  At this point I'm not really sure what to do with all these photos so I'm going to post a few here.  I also have an entire Pinterest board devoted just to pictures of my cats.  I'll be posting some of those here as well.  Happy viewing!
