Back to blogging this week and to get things started I thought I would share the new edition to our family.
Meet our new Border Collie pup named Rhody!
Isn't he the best? Shown here sitting next to our little dog Baxter and then with his sister Maggie who is owned by a good friend of mine - lots of puppy playdates, yay!!!
If you just can't get enough of this cuteness, follow me on instagram. I'll be posting lots of puppy pictures there!! follow me HERE
Last week these 6 paintings took a ferry ride to Martha"s Vineyard. They are at Eisenhauer Gallery in Edgartown. Truly a wonderful gallery - if you are visiting the island this summer be sure to stop by -lots of great art!!

No - not bored of the black lab yet just had to paint my sweet boy Bode Dog a sweet sweet mutt. Still having fun with these big acrylics. My son called dibs on this painting, so it is not for sale.

Something about painting the same image over and over again is appealing. It lets you explore the paint and the mood and the color without having to worry about composition and proportion and all that fussy stuff. Just might paint this black lab a bunch more until it is not fun any more.

Acrylic - I know, weird right? I love oils, I really really do but ooooh I am having a love affair with acrylics right now.
Struggled at first with the change in medium but I've hit my grove with these dogs. Totally into pushing the color and the abstract right now. More of this is bubbling under the surface, watch out.
A little studio peek. The beach scenes are WIP. The dogs are done. I have been playing around with acrylics on these big panels and I'm LOVING it. The quickness suits my painting style. stay tuned for close-ups and more.
The cupcakes came about a few years ago when i used to paint one as a warm-up before getting down to some commissions or other work. Lately, repainting older favorite paintings has been my go-to warm up.
This is one of those.
(in person the sand is much more butterscotch-y. I'm haveing trouble capturing that color with my camera today)
As the great melt down of 2015 takes place at home, I took the little dog - who can't/won't walk in 2 ft. of snow,slush and puddles to the beach . 39 degrees and sunny. Heaven. We made some mandalas to celebrate
