Bruce and Robyn

I've been working on this birthday present for the past week. My son advertised me on Craigslist (wasn't that sweet?) without my knowing! So I got a commission for a portrait for a birthday present. I had to work fast since I only had a week or so. The man who commissioned it seems to be very happy with it, which makes me very happy!
Robyn, the cat, has her tongue out, which he liked because it "showed attitude".

Painting at La Villita

Yesterday I spent the day painting at Susan's Gallery. It was such a learning experience, again.

I had started a painting of the house on Sweetbrush, and finally grew tired of it and stopped. I think I'm finished . I am posting a picture of the house and of the painting. I'm after a more impressionistic look.

Then I started a portrait of my niece's cute son, Drew. I love the picture! The football is almost bigger than he is! With a lot of help from Susan, I got it done. was a struggle. It's so neat to paint something that looks like the person, but it is such a challenge! I definitely have lots to learn! Again, I am posting the picture and the painting.

It was such a fun day. I can spend hours doing this! It seems like I do since I'm not getting anything else done!

Another Patriotic Eagle

I've been busy painting...recently I did this eagle. Tomorrow I am going to La Villita to paint again with Susan. Can't wait! I really get so much out of that and may have to increase my sessions!

I have a new commission with two pugs in the painting. I will be posting that soon.

It's Spring Break! Have a wonderful week!

Precious Chewing Away at a Tennis Ball

I love this one! Those sweet eyes looking up at you while chewing away at a tennis ball!

It is framed in a blue 5 by 7 frame and looks really cute.

I am starting a series of 5 by 7 puppy faces. I want them to be colorful and sweet. They are painted with pastels on sanded paper and are for sale! You just might have a dog that looks like these sweet things!
