 Pontoufle WORK IN PROGRESS • oil on 6 x 6 GessobordTM

Here’s my latest work in progress: the first painting of Pontoufle (pronounced pahn-toof; French for bedroom slipper, and named after the imaginary Kangaroo -- or WAS he imaginary? -- in the movie Chocolat). All grown up at almost 11 months, relaxing in his favorite chair by the window. 

I think this painting may be spoken for, but Pontoufle is proving to be so much fun to paint (as I knew he would) that I’m sure there will be many future paintings featuring his furry self.


The following link will take you to some ALARMINGLY ADORABLE 
pics of our furry hero when he first came to live with us.

Oh, and before I forget, here’s the finished version of the paperwhites painting, which was snapped up by one of my collectors here in Shreveport before I had a chance to even post this picture. 

I love it when that happens!
