This is a painting I did for a show that featured art about the Blanco River in Wimberley which flooded last May, causing deaths and damage. The river was like a tsunami; water came from upstream in the middle of the night. While I did not witness it, this is how I imagined it would have looked. (BTW... the painting didn't make the show. But I like it anyway!)
Here is a series of paintings I am donating to the 100@100 Artists Helping Wimberley art benefit on 6/27. We have over 200 pieces of art that have been donated and they are just $100 each. I finished these four paintings a number of months ago and can't remember what I called it. So now I'm going with "Strung Up on Cacti." If you want to buy it, it will be just $100. If I got any of the proceeds, which I won't as it is going to Barnabas Connection, I would be making WAYYY below minimum wages. But I had such a great time painting these so I'm happy to see them get a new home.
I recently finished this commission. It was a fast project as the painting was needed for a birthday present. I had just a few days to do it, but Maggie spoke to me and we got it done. I worked; she lazed about.
Just finished this portrait of Cowboy, a long-haired dachshund. I smiled the whole time I painted him as he is so cute. He'll go under the Christmas tree for a special lady.
I'm currently working on a very large painting of two boxers. The photo is fantastic and shows one dog standing over the second. They are both on a round cushion, therefore the title. I always start with a charcoal sketch and then paint over it. It seems to help me with the values. And after many months of on-again, off-again painting, I'm finally finished. Hello Boop and Beau, the two boxers with oodles of personality.
