FROM TOP/LEFT: "Chinook," 5" x 7" and "Xena," 6" x 8", commissioned Husky portraits, acrylic on canvasboard, both in a private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may come to me.
Chinook and Xena are siblings who have been waiting very patiently (almost a year) for their turn to be painted as Dog-a-Days. I would like to thank their family and all my other clients - I sometimes feel ridiculous asking customers to wait this long for a painting, and I am very appreciative of everyone queuing so politely.
I'm a couple Dog-a-Day paintings behind and will see what I can get accomplished over the weekend. I'm also busy editing my latest columns for Art Career Experts and continuing work on the second Painting a Dog a Day book representing artwork from 2008. And as you know, there's at least another 10 projects going on in the wings.
I've added several memorials to the Dog-a-Days In Memoriam pages in recent weeks and have a few more sitting in my in box. If you haven't had an opportunity to check out the In Memoriam site, I think you'll find it a contemplative space that honors the spirits of these creatures we love so much. Submissions for the pages are always welcome - all I ask is you respect that I am adequately staffed only to publish memorials for Dog-a-Day muses.
Thanks as always for sharing these paintings with your friends and family,
