Little Miss P. by Christa Gampp

I really enjoyed painting the portrait of this little girl at age 6 months. It amazes me how quickly babies change their features at that age. Little Miss P. looks so different now, at age 1. She transformed from infant to toddler in such a short time.

My personal preference for framing watercolour paintings:

  1. have it framed behind glass to protect the artwork.
  2. use a double mat, rather than a single one. It provides another colour to complement the artwork.
  3. the mat also creates a space between the art and the glass and prevents damage from condensation.
  4. a double mat makes the artwork look larger and gives it a custom look.

The Loss of a Pet by Christa Gampp

This wonderful dog crossed the rainbow bridge earlier this year. Coping with the loss of a pet is very difficult. Our beloved companions are part of the family and will be dearly missed when they pass away. A unique, custom painted portrait is a special way to preserve your treasured memories.

Beautiful Cornish Rex Girl by Christa Gampp

Just finished a painting of Kirppu. Her name means 'flea' in Finnish. What fascinated me the most are her large ears and those green eyes. For an artist, it's a real pleasure painting such a pet. I will paint her again in the near future. She is too interesting looking to just paint once!
