This is the smiliest dog I think I've painted! A commission, it took me a little longer than normal because of the size and interruptions...
I really like his eyes-
I have fixed the background- need to get a better shot to put on my website~ before I get it to the owner!

Such gracious green everywhere today! the trees along 38th street are already bowing towards each other across the asphalt...
I may need to paint trees very soon...
I made two Frankenskirts last night for the sale next weekend~

This is a companion piece to LOOKING- this one is titled LISTENING- really, if you look at their faces, their eyes are soft-focused, staring off into the distance, and their EARS are at attention~ Maybe I didn't get Bing's up high enough, but Duane thought Gus' were too big and I said huh-uh! Those are the right size!
But this is what they like to do best, esp on a lovely spring afternoon when it is just a bit cool and there's a smidge of sunshine in the backyard- they have a habit of lying near each other companionably, and yet with enough personal space that no one feels crowded~
i love these guys!

The dogs in the yard- duane took this one~ I am SO fortunate to have married a fellow artist who is capable of great compositions. This is probably our most common collaborations- his photos inspire my paintings.
I am feeling the need to paint something else soon tho... poles? trees? max?

i already sold 2 pieces last thursday! sorry- it's my spring break and i've been REALLY tired- i think my body and heart are doing that thing where you give yourself a time-line and you PUSH and PUSH and then you MAKE it WAHOO! and then afterwards you are exhausted and a little depressed because it is over...
so, i did do a gigantic Bingo...
and i have a few more fun commissions coming up,...
and i gotta make some FRANKEN-tshirts and t-skirts...
these are the ones that sold!
