Enjoy the Ride

6x8 acrylic on gessobord

This happy dog is my husband's Navy buddy's dog.   I saw the photo of this pup while Bob (my hubby) was on Facebook.  I knew I had to paint him!  OMG, that face!  That background!  It was so much fun working on this one!  When I finished painting, I swear I had the Lego movie song playing in my head (Everything is Awesome...)!!!

Winter Warmth

8x8 acrylic on canvas

This is a painting I did for a friend.  The photo of this scene was absolutely magical.  I really thought painting this would be a snap.  Well, it was quite the opposite!  The others weren't flowing.  Either it was too dark, too symmetrical, or just plain awful! This is the 3rd one I did, and I'm finally happy with the result.

Ipo

8x10
acrylic on gessobord
This is a painting I did for my mom of her new puppy, Ipo.  She's a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.  Her name means "sweetheart" in Hawaiian.  I have yet to meet her, but I can already tell it won't take long for me to fall in love with her.

Jose

8x6
acrylic on gessobord
This is another commissioned painting I did for a friend.  I had a few photos to choose from, but chose this one because I loved how Jose was sticking his tongue out.  One title idea I had was, "What?  No Carrots?".  I love seeing a bit of goofiness in animals.
