Mr. Cool

I couldn't stop myself.  I have a lot to do but this painting just kept calling to me.  It needs some more work but the urge is gone. 
Mr. Cool
Now I can go pay some bills and do some laundry - not romantic but necessary.

Paint me a Rainbow

Technically this is an old painting.  Technically that is.  I just wanted to add one stroke and then my brush all on its own went crazy and it doesn't resemble the original of which I have no picture.  this is big 30 x 36. 

Paint me a Rainbow

a little dab'll do ya  - one dab never does.

Pretty in Pink

I remember taking a picture of this lab at Dog Mountain, Vermont.  He looked so sad and no one should look sad there.  If you love dogs, this is heaven on earth.  If you don't, well go anyhow and maybe you will be converted.

Pretty in Pink

You really should go.

Who Dares Disturb the Princess

I have a friend, a great friend. It is nice to have such a supportive  friend. I painted this without her permission .  I have done worse to her.

This is her puppy. Let's see if she really reads my blog and noticed that I painted her dog without her permission. 
Game on.

Friend of Yours?

Would you believe someone passed up a skull on the grocery shelf.  It was the last thing leftover from halloween marked down from $27.00.  Who would pay that is beyond me but at $4.00 I couldn't leave it alone. 

He keeps me company in the studio.  We talk If he talks back I will be in trouble

I have naturally curly hair

I used another picture from the Ivy League Canine Center for my source.  I had a heck of a time getting a picture of this one - I guess this is what happens late at night.  I couldn't get it right.

I have Naturally Curly Hair

Oh well.

I have always depended on the kindness of strangers

Devan Dowbiggin runs a kennel called "Ivy League Canine Center" and posts wonderful pictures. Some of them are calling out to be painted. Well they call to me anyhow.  I emailed her and asked if I could use them as sources and she immediately responded  that I could.  I appreciate that so much.

I think this dog is called Melon.  Look at those eyes. That is either devotion or a really good cookie.

Confession - I have never seen the play "a Streetcar Named Desire"  I just like the quote.
