Pet Portraits

I have to learn how to promote my art and my services, so here it goes… ๐Ÿ™‚

Remember the study I made a couple of days ago? This is Sylvester. This is his watercolor portrait. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you are interested in having one made (cat, dog, horse, bunny, etc), please send me an email at magicpoppet@me.com or send me a message via this website and let’s talk. ๐Ÿ™‚

Aso’t Pusa


I’m going to have an exhibit! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m re-posting the announcement from Beterinaryo sa Fort. Hope you can drop by and check out my works!


Beterinaryo sa Fort Animal Clinic brings to you watercolor paintings of cats and dogs by artist Steph Palallos (http://stephpalallos.com/) right here at the BSF facility. All her works are for sale with a portion of the sales to be donated to our favorite animal welfare charities, CARA and PAWS.

The ASOโ€™T PUSA exhibit opens on Friday, 27 September 2013 at 6PM with cocktails. This event will also introduce BSFโ€™s new floor as we seek to provide better services to you and your fur kids in our improved facility.

The ASOโ€™T PUSA exhibit will run through 31 October 2013. Please drop by the clinic to see Stephโ€™s beautiful work and maybe take one home with you.

Getting my groove back

I’ve been struggling to get my muse back for months now. No amount of pleading, heckling, and bribing could lure her back into my life. I feel spent and empty. Today I decided to take on a different approach: instead of hitting myself on the head, I followed the instructions I normally give to my students when they first start learning how to paint. I cleaned my room, set up my space, and tried my best to get into a creative mood.


I did watercolor exercises the whole day to try to loosen up my brain. I used watercolor artist Lorraine Watry’s videos as a guide.


Then I filled my Moleskine watercolor journal with images of my cat. I’ll share more when I feel more confident about them ;o)


I still have a long way to go, but I think I’m on the road to getting my groove back. ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, break time is over! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello? Is anyone out there? Sorry I’ve disappeared. Been spending a lot of time with my sis, brother in law, and their lovely daughter Lucia.

Here is my work for the day with The Little One:


They’re going back to the States on Friday. Now who’s going to draw with me? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
