Wow! So much has been going on.
First, here is a new painting that I finished for the Artwalk in Florida. This is based on a past commission and a hat by Jan Wutkowski who owns AMUSE Artisinal Finery hat shop. Her creations are gorgeous and she is a REAL hat maker.
I started the painting when I did the Dog Days Downtown in Wilmington and was painting in front of her shop. I just recently decided to pick it up again to finish for the show. I hope to do a whole series of these with different dogs and have a show at the end of the year or beginning of next year.

The Artwalk Downtown was fantastic! I could not believe how many people attended. Someone told me an estimated 10,000 people attend the Artwalk in Jacksonville! Which is such an improvement since I lived there - Downtown Vision has done an amazing job!
I sold some books and met a lot of interesting people and even saw a friend from Wilmington!
Lastly, I have an article in Encore Magazine - here is the link:
Chumley at Artwalk living like a rock star!
Earlier he spend his day at the spa getting poofed up, trimmed up and fixed up at Pretty Paws Doggie Salon. Later he said to me "never do that again!".
