"Her Majesty (Nellie)," 8" square, terrier portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, not for sale. Want a Dog-a-Day portrait of your own pet? it's super easy - inquiries may come to me.
I've been creating artwork to send to a new (to me) gallery in Alabama. As per my usual arrangement with galleries and special events, I try to send paintings representative of their particular area or clientele's likes. In this case I was asked to provide them with a few terriers.
This is Nellie, who belongs to mentor, friend and fellow artist Kathi Peters. I've painted Nellie before (most recently yesterday and in January 2009), and you will see lots more of Nellie on Kathi's blog, along with some beautiful paintings and insightful musings (By the way, if you are in the Lexington, Kentucky area, Kathi has a solo show opening at Gallery B this Friday evening).
My new paintings will be in transit to the new gallery next week. I am very excited about the clients and faces I'll meet as a result of this partnership - and I promise to share links and other information as the details get firmed up. Wouldn't it be great if a roadtrip resulted from this, too?! Keep fingers, toes and paws crossed.....
Did you see the changes I made to yesterday's painting? I am so much happier with it now - I've added a little mini-art lesson to the blog as a means of explaining my dissatisfaction, and what I did to correct that.
So now I'm off to glaze some paintings, conquer a slippery stack of paperwork and enforce some kind of basic organization in the studio. Probably will all go more smoothly with some chocolate. I can take care of that!!
Thanks for sharing my paintings with your friends and family,
See you tomorrow,
