The Doggy Post

Oh boy, I'm at again:  barely moving on my flowers.  I had some painting interruptions last week (in addition to the regular ones consisting of typical household chores and MANY doggy needs: wanting to go out, come back in . . . go out again . . . come back in . . . pretend to want to go out but really just want attention . . . doggy lunch . . . go out again . . .  come back in . . . you get the picture).  But I'm determined to make some real dents in these two paintings this week.  You've seen the flowers before, however the one below is for my friend/student, Sue -- to whom I owe so much -- it's her Louis.  He's her special love.  So I really need to finish this for her.  I had originally wanted it to be a surprise but got excited and blew that!  :)

Speaking of doggies - I caught some of Puppy Bowl X yesterday and was completely enamored.  I had never watched any in the past but was flipping around the t.v. while working on my miniature kitchen and found it -- so stinkin' cute!  Puppies make for just plain, feel good t.v.  :)  Admittedly, I didn't watch the Superbowl, but after seeing the score I think it's safe to say that Puppy Bowl X was probably more riveting!  

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

  1. I'm amazed how you get such a variety of distinct colors in a small space, such as the centers of the flowers. The shadows and modeling on the petals is wonderful, and the glass of course. I thought this was done last time I saw it, but the work you've done on it makes it even better!
