A Dog's Life

Everyone should have a dog's life. At least my dogs. Bullwinkle's usual position on my leather couch! I had to post this pic of him. He looks so relaxed. I will take all the boys for a walk later and will try to put up more pics of the boys, Rocky, Bullwinkle and Scooby. They are so blessed. Yesterday we saw this dog in front of the house he was sooo sad. He was severely skinny and his hind leg was tucked under him as if broken. He hobbled into the woods. I tried to coax him to come to me with food but he looked back at me and continued on. He looked about medium size and maybe had Pit Bull in him. I would have been careful in case he was aggressive but I was hoping he would come and eat. If I got him into the back yard I would have tried to get a Pit Bull rescue group to take him. Lord knows I don't need another dog but I wish I could have helped him. He disappeared and his sad eyes are emblazoned in my memory forever.

Painting update; I am just about finished the The Bridge pic of Central Park in New York City. I am really enjoying painting this one. It is very big for me but I like the values. I gravitate to warm colors. You can compare the progress with the previous posts.

Getting work done!

Another great day at the High Springs Art CoOp. Customers were a little scarce perhaps because summer in winding down and people are preparing for school next week. Not too many strollers and shoppers in High Springs today. August has been slow and the record high temperatures may be the cause. Although I heard our "Artist of the Month" reception at the coop, two weeks ago was a great success with about 200 people. I was down south visiting my granddaughter.

I got lots of painting done as you can see if you compare the pics of these two paintings from last week to this week. The Central Park picture is coming along nicely and I think I will call it "The Bridge." Unless someone can comment with a better name. Give me a suggestion and if I pic it I will send you a notecard, free by mail!

The other painting of fisheating Creek is giving me a bit of trouble on the tiny faces of Heather and Courtney. I will let it dry some and then work on it again.

Both paintings still need work. Talk with you again soon!

Back on Track

We have recently come back from vacation in Williamsburg, Va., and I need to get back to painting. These two pics I started before I left, the left one is roughly laid out of a large version of my Central Park pic. I had done that as a miniature and our cousin, Daphne, purchased it several months ago. The other one is almost done of Fisheating Creek in Florida. It is a pic of my daughter and her friend fishing at the campout, soon to be a part of my figurative art collection.

After some errands yesterday I started 2 more pics, I will post later. I have to finish Roberts portrait commission. There is only some details to do on the portrait. I did get excepted to the Thornebrook Art Festival in Gainesville, Fl the first weekend of Oct. I will give more details on that later. So lots of work to do to have some new work for the show!
