Today's painting is a little bit slap-happy, I'll admit. It could have something to do with the tiny little bouquet of crocus on my desk, fresh from the backyard. It could have something to do with the ridiculously fluorescent pink pig faced tennis ball that Finn's been dropping at the base of my easel all morning. It could be that I FINALLY got the paypal buttons to work on my website (HOORAY!!). It could be the freedom of working real big again, as I've started work on my latest larger-than-life stretched canvas, simply titled "Red Dog." Or it could be my new kicks - nothing like a great new pair of Nikes to keep me dancing at the easel (today I'm listening to some Albert King and Pinetop Perkins).
Lots of reasons to smile today.
And on top of that, it's Friday!
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! I've got some old girlfriends in town for dinner tonite, and tomorrow we are off to a 60th wedding anniversary celebration for my husband's Aunt & Uncle. Lots of quality time with dear friends and family lined up over the next few days.
It'll get me all set for some serious studio time next week - I have a full calendar of dog-a-day commissions scheduled, and want to get significant progress made on this large canvas. I'll also be filming a segment for our local cable channel where I'll get to talk about and share stories from the Painting a Dog a Day project.
Thanks, as always, for looking and sharing these paintings with your friends and family.
See you next week!
