Bulldog study, 5x7, dog portrait in acrylic on canvasboard. Available to the first buyer. Inquiries to email@example.com. SOLD. Don't forget that you can have the Dog-a-Day's emailed directly to you!

Shepherd study, 4x5, dog painting in acrylic on canvasboard. Inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org You might notice a brighter look to the blog today; I made a few design changes to the template so as to show the artwork off better. I also added a search feature - in the upper left corner there is an entry bos where you may type in a keyword (lab, terrier, available) and all applicable posts/paintings will be displayed. Hope this helps you to browse through as the dog-a-days increase in number!
Some people have complained that they do not have internet access at work, or do not always have time to check into the blog each day, but they want to follow along with the paintings. Or by the time they can share the painting with a significant other (usually the one with the checkbook), the painting is already sold.
While I can't really fix the whole sold situation (except by painting more prolifically!), I can help out in another way.
I went ahead and built a newsgroup to accompany the painting a Dog-A-Day blog.
Interested readers can subscribe to the newsgroup by typing their email address into the Google bar at the very top of this blog page, and hitting the "Subscribe" button.
By subscribing to the newsgroup, each (painting) day you will receive an email. You will get this email, along with an attachment of the Dog-a-Day painting several hours prior to the blog getting updated.
I hope that this helps out, and encourage you to keep your ideas comi…
