Painting - Oil On Canvas
Best Friends was originally an award winning photograph of my cat and my dog (best friends in real life and unfortunately the dog has passed since). In fact when my dog died, my cat did not find her place and peace for a week. We thought we were going to loose her too because she was so upset! She walked from from to room looking for her and since the cat spends a lot of time outdoors, we had a real hard time getting her back into the house at night (we have lots of coyotes around here) and when she finally came in, she looked like she went through hell: fur standing up, fleas, she was dirty.. she was a huge mess. It took her a week to return to normal. But now she is not friendly with any dog--which may be a good thing.
In any case, I hand painted the photo, removing the background, using computer software in oil - impasto equivalent-this was one of my first paintings; since then I have created a nicer one.
This is a digital hand painting with heavy textures. The benefit of buying a digital painting is that when canvas paint is presented on Fine Art America, it is only a photograph of the art. When it is digital painting, you get the actual original digital image with its textures well pronounced. In canvas art photographs the textures are flattened out completely so you end up with flat art for both touch and look. With digital art the print retains the textured look no matter what it is printed on.
Digital art is also safer to the artist and the buyer since oils release toxic fumes, particularly as the colors are mixed. The thinner is also toxic. There is nothing toxic about a digital painting. :) Enjoy!
