Dogs, art, and possibly a cup of tea
Sunday March 14th, 2010 at 06:07 AMSighthounds - their elegant looks, their regal holier-than-thou attitude, their amazing speed and agility - it all makes me admire them incredibly. They're so very different from other dogs. So lets feature a few sighthounds that I've painted recently. Blue brindle Afghan Hound, with a goatee, on a shell with beautiful pastel orange and grey highlights. tricolor Basenji, showing off his tightly curled tail. Graceful white Saluki on a fiery red-orange shell. Italian Greyhound. Isn't it about... Monday November 2nd, 2009 at 02:37 PMLets revive this place a little. Its been quite a few moons since I last posted and yet my stats tell me that people still occasionally visit this blog, for which I am grateful. Perhaps they wind up here by accident but I know I'd rather stumble onto a live blog than a dead one. So for the sake of those people, and perhaps for those that miss us I figured I'd throw in an update :) As usual - i've been busy! School, work, a lot of dog shows, and a little painting here and there. I put two new... Sunday May 3rd, 2009 at 10:35 AMWell, my friend Beth gently reminded me that I have been completely ignoring this blog for the past four months. The shells that were featured as new listings in the last entries have already reached their four month limit on Etsy and have had to been renewed. Seriously, shame on me. In fact I've been incredibly slow on painting in these months. Schoolwork has kept me occupied and miserable :P I've had a couple of commissioned portraits to keep me busy though! So I'm gonna show them off :)... Sunday January 18th, 2009 at 12:34 PMSo, how are we spending our winter? oh y'know... desperately waiting for decent weather to return. Desperately. Look at this desperate face... Soaking any bits of light that come through the window. To the point where it gets a little pathetic. Irresistably cute. But pathetic. Plotting to steal the cat food for sport. Props for devouring it all and not getting caught. Hmm... These feet, they need to run... But they dont want to touch anything too cold. sigh. -------------------- By the way,... Monday January 12th, 2009 at 04:23 AMSo I hope 2009 has taken a good start for everyone. Its been a little difficult here. One of the reasons is that Anton has a booboo. Yes, a booboo. He broke one of his nails all the way down to the quick. And he hasn't told anyone so by the time i saw it by randomly trying to cut his nails and seeing a big gaping hole where a nail should have been, it had enough time to get infected. So he's had a hefty dose of antibiotics and a bandaged foot. He's being very dramatic about it. Like he'll be... Sunday December 28th, 2008 at 03:54 PMHeh I've been aching to sit down and paint for the past month. I haven't been allowing myself due to finals at college. Its really a shame but while everyone was out there promoting to death in December, I was forced to mostly ignore my shop all month. And my last (and most difficult) final was on the 22nd, right before Christmas. Yah. Now I've got a month off so I'm stepping up to painting again. I've missed it! I bring a bit of a variety... First up is a puppy German Shorthaired Pointer. I...
