A handsome guy painted last week. Not available for sale, but worth showing off. 😀
January got off to a slow start, which I needed after the Christmas rush. I’ve painted a few commissions, and wanted time for them to reach the owners before showing them off. Isn’t this a nice moment? I’d swear he’s waiting for his owner, if I didn’t think the owner snapped the picture. 🙂
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 justContinue reading “paintings: mid summer catch up”
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.

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. 8″x16″ oil on stretched canvas. Available here.
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. 12″x12″ oil on stretched canvas. Available here. SOLD thank you
11″x14″ oil on stretched canvas. Available in my etsy shop. This pretty girl was a passerby at an art show I set up at last summer.
It’s June already? June? Oh, my! I haven’t even started Christmas shopping and we’re almost halfway there. I can’t believe it. Time gets away, doesn’t it? Like my visit with this beautiful dog. It was two July’s ago! I meant to paint him ever since, but he kept slipping down in my to-do list. DownContinue reading “painting: German Shepherd (06/01/17)”
