A great cloudy day to work in the studio on this larger painting. I haven’t painted “large” for awhile…I need more patience in this painting. And, I need to enjoy the moment(s)
Walking a dog in winter takes some planning. I’ve left the house without really realizing how cold it is. There is no going back….
This latest painting is a work on canvas and is about the idea of a walk and an actual walk. It could be called, “winter’s hesitation”…..acrylic on canvas 29×39″
ps. this is my first post on my new Blog look! hopefully it’s easier to see and enjoy
The first day of the New Year I always feel reborn into a new time to think and create and change. We’ve all been through some very busy times with family and friends and just keeping up with each day as it presents itself. This past week I’ve taken some time to work on a new painting about the new year and the endless possibilities of it all! Enjoy
Jazz was an untrusting and aggressive dog when he was rescued.The rescuer wondered at her own sanity for giving him a second change, but she continued to work with him. The Journey was a long one, but Jazz finally learned the ropes so well, that he now works as a therapy dog! Patience sometimes rules the day! (By the way, I’m very close to completing paintings and stories for a 2nd “Give Me That Dog” book.)
What better way to spend a hot July day than to paint a story about a shy rescued dog that loved nothing more than to run and roll in the snow. This shelter dog, adopted from a shelter, was very unsure of herself.It took a long time to coax her outside for a walk when she was first adopted, but she came out of her fears and hesitations and quickly discovered the joys of a snowy day.
