The Third Book !!

Congratulations to our cover boy - Cosmo from November 2009! He graces the third Painting a Dog a Day catalogue, this one covering the artwork from 2009.

It's been literally almost 2 years in the making, so you can imagine the overwhelming relief I feel announcing that my latest book is available!

"Come Sit Stay" is the third volume dedicated to the Painting a Dog a Day project. It joins my two prior publications "The First Year" and "That's 14 in Dog Years."Each book chronicles the details of one year's worth of daily paintings from Painting a Dog a Day.

"Come Sit Stay" focuses on 2009's artwork, a year that included over 230 new paintings, the advent of creative journalling and Virtual pARTys, a trip to upstate New York, and a studio remodel.

This title is a natural extension of my daily blog, where I chronicle details of each animal crossing my easel. The book includes insights to my process that the blog does not, it summarizes a year's worth of production into a neat package, and includes portraits that were not originally published. It is a great title for anyone interested in daily painting or defining their own artistic voice, and is especially enjoyable to those interested in animals and painting.

The 116 pg book includes over 200 full color reproductions and several essays outlining the project and the year's challenges.

Softcover volumes are $44.95, hardcovers with a dust jacket are $59.95, and image wrapped hardcovers are $64.95.

Order by December 12th in the Continental US to have your copies delivered via ground in time for the holiday; December 19th for holiday delivery by Next Day Air.

I have promotional coupons that will cover ground shipping for 3 or more copies delivered to the same address and ordered by December 10th - email me for the specifics.

All orders can be placed on Blurb's website, right here.

Thank YOU for looking at, and sharing, my artwork with your friends and family -

Is My Painting in the Book ?

There's over 200 paintings included in the new book, and over the next few days I'll be sending emails to those of you owning a piece that's reproduced.

I'm trying my best to get the notices out as quickly as I can. I know that you are eager to find out what's up. And I am just as excited to share the book with you!

Inquiries can always come to me.

Thanks so very much!


  1. thanks, Pam! it's a lot of work, putting the books together, but a great learning experience in that I get to "group" the paintings together and study them in ways I couldn't otherwise. Always looking for another opportunity to learn!

Lashes and Corkscrews, Buckskin Horse

"Lashes and Corkscrews," 5" x 8", buckskin tobiano curly horse portrait, acrylic on board, $289 to the first taker. Do I see any hands? Inquires to . I really DID intend to paint today, but things got out of hand quickly. I think it was the Snickers bar breakfast that me going in the wrong direction right off the bat. Then the mid-morning helping of caramel corn followed by a Kit-Kat lunch.... straight downhill from there. For the last hour I have had my palette open and the brushes out, but trick-or-treaters are coming thick and heavy, and it's becoming very clear that I will NOT be finishing the sheltie paintings tonight (so sorry JB - they are coming, though!!). Instead I'll share with you a piece I did last week for an art competition. I won't find out about the juror's decision until December, but in the meanwhile, please enjoy Percy, my friend's new gelding. Isn't he a dear?! Be sure to make some time


"Dove 3," 11" x 14", acrylics and pencil on stonehenge paper, small white margin on edges (not pictured), $399 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may always come   to me . In between working on commissions, I am continuing my own learning via mentoring sessions with   Anne Siems . I'm also taking   an online workshop with Stanka Kordic.   This piece was a eureka sort of painting in that it begins to meld what I am trying to learn from both these extraordinary women. Someone asked me recently why I study with other artists. It's because I'm never fully satisfied with what I know how to do. There's always people better than me at something or another, and I want to try to peek inside their brain to figure out how they weave their magic. Then I can adapt that to my own goals and style. It would be boring to paint the same way, every day, for eternity. I want to evolve and grow. Always. (and if you feel the same way, maybe you want to   v
