Artist/Photographer Suzette McIntyre owns a studio and gallery in Windsor, Colorado. Boardwalk Gallery features showings for other artists as well as Suzette's works. I might never have found this talented lady if she hadn't become a member of Northern Colorado Writers, so thanks to NCW and Director Kerrie Flanagan for putting me in touch with so many wonderful creative people throughout the area.
Now back to the original story. I visited Suzette's gallery one day for a meeting, and while there, fell in love with a painting called "White Out." It reminded me of cold white winters back on the farm in Illinois. I couldn't get it out of my mind after I went home, so I took another little ride over to Windsor and bought that painting for my office.
While I was there, I saw one of the pet paintings Suzette does from photographs. Inspiration struck. My husband had a birthday coming up, and he's even more attached to Katie Cat than I am. I talked to Suzette about doing some magic for us, if I could only get a good photo of Katie. I went to work with the camera and finally got this one.
When it was almost time for my husband's birthday, I made arrangements to go down and pick up the painting. It took my breath away. Happily, Suzette gave me permission to display a photo of the painting. I have a couple of angles to show you.
If a client wants the picture to be warm and fuzzy, he can provide a little bagful of fur from brushing or trimming and have the real thing incorporated into the artwork.
There's a contact form on Suzette's website if you want to get in touch with her or find out her prices. She's on Facebook too. We're tickled pink with our Katie painting....and I'm still in love with my "White Out" painting, too. Suzette does beautiful work.
