Best. Day. Ever. January 29, 2010

Filed under: Art,Dogs,On the web,Painting on Yupo,Pet Portraits,Watercolor — rachaelrossman @ 8:39 pm

Two great things happened today. I’ve been dying to post about it since this morning, but I was too busy answering email and hitting ‘refresh’ on my blog stat counter.

Thing the first: My portrait of Neil Gaiman’s dog Cabal arrived in Minnesota!

I know, right?!

Thing the second: my painting of Charlie was on The Pioneer Woman today!

Charlie is home.

You know this blog is new, so I don’t get a huge amount of traffic over here. But today, thanks to the kind words of @neilhimself and @thepioneerwoman my stats are through the roof. The best part, though?  Two more of my paintings have found good homes.

Goodnight, Charlie. Goodnight, Cabal.

Goodnight, stat counter.

    Rachael I saw your beautiful painting on the PW site, however I can not access your site because it keeps asking me to log on and when I try to it says it is incorrect? 😦

      My website is down, inexplicably. I’m glad you found me here! (And I’ll post an update on this blog when my site is back up and running.)

    I found your site through The Pioneer Woman. Your work is awesome–I LOVE your style. I can’t wait until I can commission one of my own. Until then, I’ve got you on my wishlist–and if you ever need any website work, my husband would be happy to hook you up! 😉 Can’t wait to see more of your work.

  7. Leslie Says:

    I tried to get to your website via pioneer woman. I would like to know more about commissioning a work of my lovely cat, Jolie. I couldn’t get to your website, I was asked for a password and username, but if you could contact me at my email address, which I provided, I would appreciate it. Your work is absolutely amazing.

    Thank you.

    Hey Rachael,
    pretty soon you’re going to need an assistant. This is great. I love you put the beverage you’re consuming and the soundtrack. Great personal touches. Makes me miss some of those tasty beverages I used to enjoy. I’m on day 8 of a cleanse and it seems like everything I want is off limits. Drink one for me the next time you painT

    I saw your painting on Pioneer Woman’s site !! Your water colors are AMAZING. I am just slightly able to draw ( my sister and I usually win at pictionary, that type of “artist”) I tried years ago to do a few water colors, not so good. Yours are just beautiful ! Just lovely and so full of life and color. What a gift you have.
    Sincerely, Judy
