A friend commissioned me to paint Sonny for her daughter's Christmas present. This much loved dog was named after the owner's beloved grandfather. So fun to paint such a beautiful animal and make someone happy with the result. I would like to have a pet named after me one day. I don't think I have ever heard of a pet named Carol.?? This is painted on an 8 x 10 x 2" canvas.

sold It is nice when the canvas format helps you play`with different views. Also when the song you are listening to by Mumford and Sons makes for a good title. This is painted on a 12 x 36 x 2" canvas.

I wish I could take credit for coming up with this title. I decided to turn to Pandora radio to come up with something that might be appropriate. The third song that came up was "poker face" by Lady Gaga. Perfect! I did not even listen to the song I was so pleased with the outcome. This baby hereford definitely has a beautiful poker face.She is painted on an 11 x 14 x 2" canvas.
Hope you have fun plans for the weekend!sold

I had no idea what to title this painting so I decided that I would name it from within the lyrics of the next song that came up on Pandora. I have it on the Steely Dan channel and "do it again" was the winner. Could have been worse. This is painted on a 30 x 40 x 2" canvas so I included a second picture to see scale. I like to compare my painting size to the pumpkin squash vine and rosemary growing below. Sold
I am participating in the Bluff Park Art Show here in Birmingham this coming Saturday. The hours are 9-5. The weather is going to be great so come on out and enjoy the day and the art! Don't forget your wallet.

sold This is painted from one of my favorite pictures. I often stop to take pictures of cows when I am traveling and I am not sure where I was when I took this. The uncropped photo has the cow lying down and looking up at me. I have painted this on a smaller canvas a couple of times but decided to go big this time. "sweet olive" is painted on a 36 x 36 x 2" canvas.
Her name was inspired by the bushes that I have growing outside my studio. Most folks refer to them as fragrant tea olive bushes but I call them sweet olives. The bushes are beginning to mature and really blossom. The smell they emit is one of my all time favorites. A very happy smell.

This was such a fun picture to paint. Louis and Bandit's faces made me laugh while I was painting them. They look so serious.

Thank you for all the birthday wishes yesterday and for the new folks that signed up to receive my blog. I appreciate you taking the time to view my art work. I plan to do more give aways on a regular basis. I do not look at email subscribers very often because it is done through feedburner. I noticed today that there are 348 subscribers but only 256 are verified. I guess they send you a return email after you sign up for the blog to verify that you want to receive it. It may go to folks junk mail sometimes.? If you think you signed up and never get my emails you may need to sign up again and make sure you verify. Wordy! Sorry!sold
And now...for the winner of the birthday chick..........judydon02
I will give judydon02 a couple of days to respond to my email at email@example.com and if I do not hear from them I will draw another name.
Thanks again everyone and I promise to do more give aways.
