ABOVE: "Jojo," 8" square.
BELOW: "Tuffy," 8" x 10".
Both done in Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, both commissioned portraits of a Yorkshire Terriers, private collection (THANK YOU!)
These two are companions to "Couch Potato (Sophia)" (from Tuesday). I worked on Jojo and Tuffy simultaneously yesterday, with Sophia's portrait in my peripheral, so that there was a continuity to the works.
They will make an excellent grouping, don't you think?
Now I'm off to put a dent in the few remaining commissions I have due prior to the holidays. My own ship date and deadline is next Monday - I've already got 7 paintings heading out. Let's see how many more I can add to that mix.
Wish me luck!
Thank YOU for looking at, and sharing, my artwork with your friends and family -
Wishing you a very happy holiday season -
Tuck a Gift Certificate Under The Tree
Looking for a last minute gift? A certificate for a pet portrait is a great idea that will give the recipient the opportunity to participate in the portrait process, resulting in a painting they will cherish for years to come.

It's Here :: The Third Book
Have you ordered your copy of "Come Sit Stay" yet? This volume summarizes Dog a Day paintings from 2009 and has lots of other extras. If you want it (or either of my other two titles) by Christmas, the order deadline is coming up.
Place your order viaBlurb. The Blurb website also has additional information about ship dates and order deadlines. Last I peeked there were some coupon codes, too, that will help out with the ship costs.
FYI, the costs are the same as last year - this is a great value!

Thanks so very much!
I am so excited to share with you the lessons I've created exclusively for this year's Make Create Express event. The first one features butterflies and will be part of the free Creative Retreat Weekend July 11-12th. The butterfly lesson will only be available, entirely for free, during this weekend event. However BOTH lessons, the butterfly and a wonderful rabbit painting workshop, are part of the year long Make Create Express. And I'm just one of 25 other artists who have made extraordinary content. Want in? Of course you do! We are less than 3 weeks out from the Creative Retreat Weekend , and to celebrate we are having a Blog Hop Giveaway. I get to give away 1 place in the Make Create Express year long workshop. This is a $120 value - think of the art supplies you can buy with that sort of savings!!
