Isn't he the best?  Shown here sitting next to our little dog Baxter and then with his sister Maggie who is owned by a good friend of mine - lots of puppy playdates, yay!!!

Mutt 001 painting

24x24" acrylic on wood panel.
No - not bored of the black lab yet just had to paint my sweet boy Bode Dog a sweet sweet mutt.  Still having fun with these big acrylics.  My son called dibs on this painting, so it is not for sale.

Black Lab 002 painting

24x24" acrylic of wood panel
Something about painting the same image over and over again is appealing.  It lets you explore the paint and the mood and the color without having to worry about composition and proportion and all that fussy stuff.  Just might paint this black lab a bunch more until it is not fun any more.

Black Lab 001 painting

24x24" acrylic on wood panel
Acrylic - I know, weird right?   I love oils, I really really do but ooooh I am having a love affair with acrylics right now.
 Struggled at first with the change in medium but I've hit my grove with these dogs.  Totally into pushing the color and the abstract right now.  More of this is bubbling under the surface, watch out.

Studio Peek

A little studio peek.  The beach scenes are WIP.  The dogs are done.  I have been playing around with acrylics on these big panels and I'm LOVING it.  The quickness suits my painting style.  stay tuned for close-ups and more.

Spring is Here - sort of.

 nfdp.  This is what the first day of spring looks like here in Little Rhody.
Two weeks ago the snow covered this plant stand! Dang we had a lot of snow.
 All set now.
 The subtle colors of winter that inspired me 2 months ago are not really doing it  anymore.  I'm craving some green and the smell of dirt!  Come on Mother Nature you can do it!

 More snow tonight!  We are so excited.
Edit:  that was yesterday.  this is today: 

Woke to another inch of snow

Wellfleet Walk, beach painting, dog

Honestly, how do people not have a dog?  This has got to be one of my favorite things to do in life.
  Nothing beats a walk on the beach with your dog. 
This Wellfleet Walk was a commission.

yellow bucket, beach 031815

6x6" oil on panel $100
The cupcakes came about a few years ago when i used to paint one as a warm-up before getting down to some commissions or other work.  Lately, repainting older favorite paintings has been my go-to warm up.
This is one of those.
(in person the sand is much more butterscotch-y.  I'm haveing trouble capturing that color with my camera today)

Fresh Air Friday, beach mandalas

As the great melt down of 2015 takes place at home, I took the little dog - who can't/won't walk in 2 ft. of snow,slush and puddles to the beach .  39 degrees and sunny.  Heaven.  We made some mandalas to celebrate
