I got to paint a dog portrait for a friend last week. These scruffy, hairy-eyebrow dogs are the most fun to paint! They have such character, and this one in particular had so many colors I was able to pull out of him. Check out this face-
Glad I was able to squeeze him in before the end of the month. I find I’m painting less these days, but when I get the itch I can make something happen.

Is everyone else as moved as I am by these fall colors when you walk outside? There’s been an obvious theme in my paintings lately too. So. Good.
I’m grateful I had a chance to finish this painting today, and I am loving the colors…again! This is the same bush I painted earlier this summer-
But look how different the colors are in just a month! So great. I might just have to try painting this plant every season. I get to paint all my favorites with this subject; branches, tiny negative space shapes, and random patterns! I may have a new favorite.
Welp, the guilt got to me again. So I sucked it up and took another look at some pictures I took of the same succulent bush at the end of our sidewalk (that I did earlier this summer) and stood in front of the easel and went for it. I had fun so far and do like the turn out. But baby’s awake now, so more tomorrow!
SOLD (8x8in on canvas panel)
Woah. It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve painted anything on a canvas….whoops. I think I just needed a break to try some other crafts. But today was the day, and the yellow aspens and Colorado blue sky were calling for some paint! I enjoyed the simplicity and colors for this one.
