FROM TOP: "Zonked I," 6" x 8", and "Zonked II," 4" x 8", both portraits of a mixed breed dog, done in acrylic on canvasboard, both in a private collection. Inquiries may come to me . Remember Bailey? She's my brother's dog, the one I babysat in May, the one who promptly escaped and spent her day sightseeing around Lake Orion . Suffice it to say that the remainder of her stay was spent sound asleep (and on a very short leash when awake). I got a gazillion references of all the positions she slept in, in a variety of light sources. Just the sort of stuff to create nice paintings from, once the bitterness of spending a panicked afternoon hunting her down had somewhat faded. Tonight I got to move a temporary studio into the Orion Township Public Library, where I gave a brief presentation on being a working artist, followed by a Dog-a-Day demo and a booksigning of Painting a Dog a Day - the First Year (you can order your own copy here ) .
