This painting survived many threats today. I was so close to scrubbing it out until my husband Dan came in and saved it. He said, "I love it." He does not say that about everything I paint. He is a really good critic and I mean that in a positive way. I am a lone painter so he is my second set of eyes. This is painted on a 15 x 30 x 2" canvas.
I am not good at photographing large pieces so I let my husband help. I thought I would get in the picture so that you could see how large it is. This is painted on a 40 x 60 x 2" canvas.
This piece was two different paintings before the cow appeared. A different cow and then an abstract. I did so much scrubbing and wiping that my hands were sore. It all turned out fine in the end.
My Spring shows start next weekend in Gulf Breeze, FL. I will be at their Art Festival March 23 and 24. The rest of my schedule is as follows:
Ridgeland Arts Festival in Jackson, MS . April 6 and 7
Dogwood Arts Festival in Atlanta, GA April 12-15
Double Decker Arts Festival in Oxford, MS April 27
This is a commissioned piece for a friend. She is surprising her husband with the painting for his birthday. This pooch could throw this ball and then also fetch it. Hours and hours of fun. This is painted on a 10 x 10 x 2" . Shih tzus hold a special place in my heart because I had one that looked much like this for thirteen years.
