I smiled the whole time I was painting this golden doodle.  He is named after a hockey coach.  Hope this made you smile.  He is painted on an 11 x 14" canvas.

 I have been struggling through painting lately.  My desire has waned and I have been hyper critical of everything I paint.  I know I will work through it but it is not a good feeling. This is painted on a 16 x 20" linen canvas.

I actually have a show that might not be cancelled.  The Monte Sano Art Festival in Huntsville, AL is one of my favorites and it is scheduled for Sept 12 and 13th. It is held in a beautiful wooded park and masks will be required.  Every artist will have hand sanitizer and social distancing will be practiced.  I really hope it happens because I miss the shows. This covid really stinks!

for the love

 I did a little more work on this 24 x 30" painting yesterday.  The pandemic has kept me in my studio much more and I am looking at pieces that normally would have sold at a show by now.  I muted this piece down a little bit and I like it more. 

I really do miss people and going to art shows.  We will get through this if everyone will do their part. Stay safe!

knockin' on the screen door

I just returned from a beautiful trip to Colorado and now I need a vacation from my vacation.  We took advantage of all the outdoor activities and wonderful cooler temperatures.  I took some great photos and look forward to painting some of the scenes. 

This rooster is painted on an 8 x 8 "deep canvas.
