Abstract 10'

Bound for Australia, this is a commission...large and very hard to photograph.  ;)


It's red, black, silver, platinum and all the blends those colors make.  He had seen a smaller painting, and asked would I do this size?  Of course I will!

I have another 5' commission too, earth tones with just a splash of red. 
Does this give you an idea?  Let me know the size and colors and I'll do the rest.  ;)

My Little Man!  I focused on his little smoochy face even though Frenchies are probably known more for their bat ears.  Cuz I love his little smoochy face!!

In progress...

I have another 8 paintings working.  I just gave up and do whatever moves me.  I am sure there are ways to be more efficient.  I usually don't post partially done paintings because I don't want people to see my unconventional way of painting, since I'm self taught.  I probably do it all wrong, ha! 

But, here are five of them, none finished:

The dog is Finny!  He moves fast unless he's trying to figure something out at which time he stops abruptly and cocks his head to the side.  Soooo cute!  My favorite part of his face is his little muzzle, so I kept out his bat ears and go the rest of his face in.

Anyway, I will finish each and post the rest of the week.  Thanks for being interested in my art, thank you for your kind comments.  :)

Another auction on Daily Paintworks, they are very artist friendly, and have small fees.  We love DPW!

PB&J #23

I reverted to my old ways by slopping on the paint as if it were peanut butter.  Not good.  Had to start over but not after I wasted 3 hours going in the wrong direction  Arg.  Anywho-it came out alright in the end.

My daughter set this one up for me, she is a believer in peanut butter.  I say-more jelly!  So this sloppy sandwich had a lot of both.  Hee hee.
6"X8" canvas board.
Really not a great photo of it.  Looks much better than this.

Finn is here!

We finally have our Frenchie, he is perfect! 
He's so sweet and we're soooooooooo happy!  He came home with the name Finn, and has nicknames already...Baby Finster, (Pronounced Finsta), Huckleberry, Poo Bear, Finn Finn, My widdew Man.  Just to name a few, we'll see what sticks.

Kokeshi & Crane

I put a crane on her dress, I think next time I will put a koi on her.  In this photo, her hair looks darker than it is.  It is actually dark brown, not black.

This is an 8"x10" acrylic painting on a thick 3/4" wood panel.

According to my daughter, this dog looks like a hipster.  Whatever that means.  I believe it is a dachshund.  Another photo used by permission from Canoozle!
