My client flooded me with all sorts of Lila photos, but there was one that smacked me fairly hard. When that happens, I have a tough time messing up.
Lila's color is simply perfect - that dark mask, the darling snippet and white chest... The orange and green and violet undertones created a solid triad of color that anchors the painting. If you squint down at the piece, it becomes pure abstraction, shapes gently jostling each other. I love it!!
A big thank you and welcome to new dog-a-day collector Jeannette Levene. She found a painting on the Dog a Day webpages, and snapped it up. One of my favorites, too. :) Visit www.paintingadogaday.com for more information.
In today's mail came the notice that my painting "Spot" (http://www.turtledovedesigns.com/animal_art.html, and scroll all the way down to the bottom) won the People's Choice Award at the 2007 Michigan State Fair. Thank you very much to everyone who visited me the day of my demonstration, and especially to those of you who voted for Spot. His new owners will be pleased to hear of this award as well!
Thanks, as always, for looking. And for sharing these paintings with your friends and family, See you tomorrow!Kim
