Biscuit finished ...

Her Function Is To Sit and Be Admired  © 2012 by Karen Mathison Schmidt
6 x 6 inches • acrylic on GessobordTM

in my eBay store (Look for ACEO Ltd Edition Art Cards there, too!)

The title of this painting, which went to its “forever home” this evening, is taken from a quote by Georgina Strickland Gates. When she received the painting, Biscuit’s servant Ramona was very pleased. And that makes me happy.

You can’t see it in the picture, but I gave this one a little subtle bling; I used just a few here and there touches of iridescent gold acrylic on Biscuit’s luxurious fur ... it’s noticeable on the painting only when the angle of the light is just so. It’s like a little secret built into the art. Fun!
