painting: German pointer (04/26/2018)

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 rangeContinue reading “painting: German pointer (04/26/2018)”

painting: German Shepherd (03/11/218)

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

painting: a mixed breed

This guy looks like a cattle dog mixed with something else. Not sure what. But didn’t he turn out looking great? We’ve been having snow and ice since Christmas. It’s just going on and on. Everyone says it’s the worst winter in 20 years. I hope you all out there are having a better timeContinue reading “painting: a mixed breed”
