New Painting "Big City Dog"

14" x 11

Well, I took a little break to turn my carport into a cabana paradise and I'm so close to my peace and serenity, and not to forget, the fruity drinks, but still need to add some finishing touches. I'll send a photo when I get done. 

I have really exciting news... I have been chosen to have my own show in October (up for 3 months) featuring all my dogs at the WHQR Gallery downtown!! I'm so excited! I will post the dates later... 
NOW, it's time to get busy!!

First Class at Bald Head Island

Well, my first teaching experience went well. I'm so thankful it was a small class - I was so NERVOUS! After a while the nervousness faded and we all had a great time. Here are my students - none of them had painted before except one, who had painted in oils for the first time a week before at another class. They each had a their own unique style and all did awesome!

Time Flies!

I just noticed my last post was July 31! Wow, time flies! Sorry I have been so neglectful in my posting, but I haven't been painting much. I did paint some abstracts and I thought about posting them, but I never know if they are done, so I'm waiting to see where they go first. 

Anyway, the table and benches have been my big project and I have been absolutely loving it! My goal is to create a "Cabana Carport" with tropical plants, string lights, bamboo, tiki torches, fruity drinks, you get the idea. Basically turning what was a nightmare space into a place of peace and serenity. 

One of my paintings has been featured on The Pet Museum blog. They wrote some really nice things about "Beach Dog" painting and the comments underneath are awesome!

I also wanted to remind everyone again about the portraits class this Thursday.
