We’re hitting our 100+ degree days now. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be 105 or 107. I’m glad it took until mid-July to occur, because I really don’t like the hot days. I have similar sentiments about mid-winter. I’m sure you can relate.

Still, we’re only 3 weeks away from the county fair, hooray! I just know there will be lots of fun new faces there. I better remember to stock up on camera batteries. 😉

Above are four sold paintings. Can you tell I was on a color theme? I really like the warm ochre. And also, they are all painted with a brush, breaking from my recent knife-painting phase. I have actually ordered more brushes, so expect to see more coming soon!

Oh my gosh, it’s already July. We’re halfway to Christmas. Are you ready?

It’s never too early to ask me to paint something special so you’re ready with a present. No last minutes worries that way. 😉

These lovely dogs are custom pieces recently painted, just to show off a little.

I love the in-motion swoop to his ears, you just know he’s on his way to do something important.

These were painted as a commission, and have gone on to the recipient now so  can share without ruining the surprise.

If I talked about color choices, I’d have to say this one surprised me how it came together. Sometimes colors just work–sometimes they don’t. The mint green here I think worked wonderfully–it’s value range is the same as the light blue, so keeps things on the “cool” side.


And this was such a wonderful photo to work from, it was hard to go wrong. I love the ears-in-the-wind.

Is this year galloping along or what? April. Wow.

I sent this one out in my newsletter a couple weeks ago, then realized I needed to touch up the background a little. Here it is, ready to go.

This is a lovely dog who was at the park a couple summers ago, I’ve painted him several times now. I asked the lady about his heritage, and he was way outside of my price range, I think his relatives become police dogs.
