The Many Faces of Pookie, Zeus and Zena are Finished – Inspired Pet Portraits & Animal Paintings by Dana Feagin

The completed paintings of Pookie, Zeus and Zena are soon to be headed down to California! They are part of the “Limitless Love” project, which is now a 501(C)(3) – for a traveling museum show featuring artwork of Pookie, Zeus and Zena. Admission fees to the show will be donated to an animal charity. These sweet dogs are being memorialized in a wide variety of art forms and styles by over 100 artists in the US and Europe – paintings, drawings, Legos, animation, etc. My commission was to capture Pookie, Zeus, and Zena’s expressions, in a collection of whimsical 10 x 10 inch portraits. Some of the photos I was working with were quite blurry, and the coloring in each dog changed quite a bit as the dogs aged. That made this a much bigger challenge than I anticipated,  as I needed to get the same level of detail across all of the paintings and the colors/age of the dogs looking consistent across the paintings for each dog – something to keep in mind for future projects!Final_TheManyFacesofPookieZeus&Zena

Last Week for Ashland Community Hospital Animal Art – Inspired Pet Portraits and Animal Paintings by Dana Feagin

It will feel a bit sad to take these Sanctuary One paintings, and the Doxie painting, down from the main reception and waiting area at Ashland Community Hospital next week. My husband works at the hospital and walks past them several times a day, so I hear that there are often small kids with their parents looking at the sweet animal faces and commenting on them.  The paintings will be split up and move back to my home studio, the Ashland Art Center, and to Starbucks on the south side of Ashland in early June.  Greeting cards and magnets with these images will still be available at the hospital upstairs in the outpatient waiting area.

My Newest Cat Commission – Inspired Pet Portraits and Animal Paintings by Dana Feagin

This commission took a bit of time to find the right photo. Abby was a very special kitty, and since it is a memorial painting, it was really important to find the right picture as a reference. Last week the completed painting shipped off to Idaho, where she will be displayed in a very special place and Abby will always be remembered for the beautiful kitty that she was. Abby is now featured in the “Selected Archives” section of my website.

“The Horses of Equamore” Opening Reception – Inspired Pet Portraits and Animal Paintings by Dana Feagin

Thanks to everyone who celebrated National Horse Protection Day with me and staff from Equamore Horse Sanctuary at the opening reception for “The Horses of Equamore” at the Ashland Art Center. In the end, I completed seven paintings of Equamore horses, of which three were being touched up on Friday morning, but they were all framed and ready to show by Friday night. We had a great crowd, which included three Equamore Board members, and one volunteer, who were on hand to talk about the work Equamore does every day to help horses in need here in Jackson County. I met so many wonderful horse lovers, and had a great discussion with another artist about creating a large horse mural in honor of the wild horses being rounded up by the BLM – so, who knows where that may lead. The show remains up through the end of March, and 10% of sales will be donated to Equamore Foundation to assist with horse care and rescue. Two of the paintings have sold, but are available for viewing for the duration of the show.  Available Equamore horse paintings and prices are now included  in the “Paintings – other animals” section of my website. http://danafeagin.com/galleries/other-animal-paintings/  Below are a few photos of the evening.
