I am excited about painting more boats with the palette knife but I had a few dogs to catch up with. It was a good creative weekend and these two little rascals were a pleasure to work on. They are
6" x 6" which is a good size for a pet portrait. We visited friends in AZ who have a very large, life-size painting of a large dog they once had. It is a very dramatic painting and they have the perfect spot for it but I do love the small canvas close up with a focus on the dogs expression and eyes.
This past summer I was fortunate to attend a workshop with Colley Whisson at the Landgrove Inn in Landgrove, VT. Colley is an Australian artist
