Cat on Quilt
Cat on Quilt by Jane McElvany Coonce
The Northern Virginia Art Center is sponsoring a fund raiser for the Arlington Animal Rescue League in April. There will be a show featuring animal art. A certain percent of the sales will go to the League. So in preparation for this, I am having my students learn how to do animals: fur, eyes, etc. and I am doing demos in the class. This is a demo I did in pastel. It was coming along so nicely that I decided to take it home and finish it up. I think I will put this in the show. If you can think of a catchier title, let me know. That's my weakness, and my goal, this year, is to improve on naming my paintings. All of you are my teachers in naming a painting, so please feel free to submit some ideas.
