For the past week, I’ve had a regular assembly line going in my studio. Today I have two paintings in progress and four or five on deck. I even had to break down and buy another drawing board, some clipboards and a filing system to keep myself organized. How soon until I can justify a housekeeper?
Some of the paintings I’m working on are gifts that people have ordered for special occasions. That means I can’t post them anywhere publicly until they’ve been, well, gifted. I learned that lesson the hard way.
Here’s one that I just finished for a delightful customer; as far as I can tell, all parties involved are aware of its existence so I can show you, too. As many of my paintings are, this is a memorial to her dog Mia (right) who is pictured with another dog of theirs, Ralf. I hope to also paint some of their puppies in the future and they’ve sent me some very cute pics. I mean, who doesn’t love puppies?
