Thea's Imani

"Thea's Imani"
14x11" Oil on Linen Panel
© Vicki Ross

As I gazed at the photo of Imani, I realized that his white marking spelled his name. Well, with just a bit of creativity! Thea is a good friend, and was heartbroken over the passing of Imani...

Also, a confession! I took the final photo of the painting at my easel where the glare of the north light cast a distinctive coolness. AND washed out the background. So a wee bit of Photoshop and viola...swap out the background for a closer match to the original :) Note to self: don't forget this lesson!
