Lucie, Prisca, & Christina – Acrylic

001

Lucie, Prisca, & Christina, by Lylanne Musselman

Lucie, Prisca, & Christina – Acrylic – Donated/Sold – 16 X 20 Wrapped Canvas, ready to hang

This is an example of my commission work. This was done for a charity auction for Freedom House in Detroit, MI., where I was happy to donate my time and talents. The three women are refugees that were helped there, and I was asked to do a portrait of them for the auction. The staff liked the portrait so much, that they bought it instead, now the three women could have the portrait themselves and not have to part with it. I was happy to be a part of this endeavor.

In this nineteenth post, an acrylic painting of a woodchuck in a cowboy hat. This is part of my series of animals and feathered friends in hats. I am doing real life pets, for those that commission me to do their pets for them, and other animals and birds that strike my fancy.

If you follow my posts, you know that I do like doing “realistic” pets and people as well, so I’m always open to doing commission work.

Nifty Nikki – Acrylic

003

Nifty Nikki – Acrylic – $115 – 8 X 10 Wrapped Canvas, ready to hang

In this seventeenth post: an acrylic painting. My dear friend’s, Linda & Bernie, recently deceased, beloved dog, Nikki. This is my tribute to this sweet dog who I came to know over the past few years. This particular painting is not for sale as it is a gift for my friends; however, if you would like a similar painting of your cat or dog, done in acrylic in the same size, it would be the same price – and ready to hang. I also can paint larger sizes and more than one pet in a portrait, but you’ll need to contact me for pricing.

Silver Metalli-Cat – Hand-pulled Print 5/8

001

Silver Metalli-Cat – Hand-pulled Print 5/8 –  $35 – 5 x 5 matted and framed

In this fourteenth post: a hand-pulled print. Here, I’ve returned to two loves – cats and printmaking. This is print 5/8 out of 8 prints. It’s the first printmaking that I’ve done in probably over 20 years, even though printmaking was my medium of choice way back in high school. I hope to be offering some monoprints and other prints, from series I’m working on, here in the near future. Nevertheless, if you’ve followed other posts you also know that I also enjoy doing art of people and pets as well. If you have a favorite bird or animal that you would like to see depicted, let me know.
