Let me introduce myself.

Welcome to my new blog. I am new to blogging, so bear with me, I promise to get better.
My name is Ron Krajewski and I am a self employed artist living in Gettysburg, Pa.
My specialty is watercolor pet portraits. I try to break away from the norm, by using off center compositions. In a lot of my pet paintings you may see just half of the dogs face. This opens me up to alot of questions like, "where is the rest of the painting?", but hey, it is not for everyone. when you commission a pet portrait through me, I will paint it any way you like it.
I am married to my lovely wife, Wendy, who is a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines. We live in Gettysburg with our 2 cats, Spencer and Puss Puss. Yes, we call her Puss Puss, but if we have to take her to the vet, we sign her in as Sadie. They are models for several of my paintings. If you see one of my paintings of a black cat, or a Tortie, those are most likely them.

Another 2 members of the family who model for a lot of my paintings are our 2 horses, Metro and Pork Chop. They are 2 retired race horses. Metro who raced under the name of Metro Meteor, was quite a race horse in his time. He was once considered one of the best turf sprinters on the East
 Coast, racing for Obviously NY Stables and was trained by Linda Rice. Racing mostly out of Saratoga and Belmont, he earned $300,00 before bad knees ended his racing career.
we adopted him off the track knowing he had issues and not knowing whether he was going to be ridable again. He has come a long way and I am currently riding him on the trails, and love him to death.
Pork Chop is on the other end of the spectrum. He had a very short racing career earning $360 over 6 races. He learned to run slow, save his knees and retire pretty.

Throughout this blog I am going to try to keep those interested in what I am currently working on, show you step by step paintings in progress, and show you some of my finished pieces. Also periodically I will be offering original paintings at cheap promotional prices to promote my website www.ronkrajewski.com.
I can also be found on eBay, Etsy, and Facebook.
