I was certifiably insane for a small window of time yesterday, and asked you to submit photos for consideration for today's Dog-a-Day painting. I pulled in mountains of emails, and every single one deserved to be painted. I went to bed scratching my head - what on earth had I done?
I wish I could have whipped out 50 paintings today, but alas, I am a mere human. Fighting off a cold, at that (as are all the Santini's). So today I'm giving you only two, but with the promise that I will have more BONUS! Dog-a-Day days in the future.
Schatzi and Pongo's families get first dibs on these paintings, but after that it's a free-for-all. Inquiries may come to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thanks, as always, for your time in looking at, and sharing, my paintings with your friends and family.
Back to the turkey breast that's roasting in the oven. Nothing like good comfort food when the fall air rolls in and the drippy noses start.
PS Just a note to help you prep for the next call for photos: Try taking pictures without the flash. We are so conditioned to using point-and-shoot cameras where, in most models, the flash goes off unnecessarily. Once your eye gets used to non-flash photos, you'll understand why I cannot paint from them.
