We were going to blog about awards today, but we wanted to show you some paintings Gracie's niece, Olive, did of Oui Oui.
Olive paints in Photoshop, and was at a real disadvantage cause of the mom's lousy low res phone photos. We know you know all about our mom's photographic talents, but we are sure it was a real surprise to Olive! Hee, hee! She took it in stride like a true trooper. But you can see, fighting the odds, she did a great job anyway.
The mom wanted something the Girl could have while she was away at collich to remind her of home and of her sweet kitty waiting for her there. You probably know how small dorm rooms are, so space is at a real premium. And the Girl is working now, so she can't come home as much as she used to.
Here are the paintings along with the originals:
Oui Oui's relaxed contentment shows in her painting and we love the Impressionistic feel Olive's painting has.
We love how Olive captured the essence of the photos yet made them unique. She did a great job of cropping too, each looks well proportioned and balanced.
Since they are digital we can size them as we like, when we print them out. The mom has worked in a couple framing shops and she'd like to frame them, but she's unsure of what technique she is going to use. Time to get out her framing tools!
Thanks, Olive! You did a great job and we are so happy. Thank you for turning them around so quickly too. The Girl will be excited to have these little mementos of home. You have brought smiles to all our faces. Purrs & may your holidays be bright!
We ordered Oui's portrait through the recent auction on CB. But if you like them, you can order from Gracie as well. Just visit Gracie!
We have received nothing in return for our post. In fact, Olive & Gracie don't even know we wrote it.
