I love painting dogs and i have a big “Dog Show” coming up in Cambridge next week. I have focused on so many dog paintings recently that i have decided to take a break this week and paint some  white poppies. I used my photo of poppies for inspiration and created a couple of new “White poppy” paintings with acrylics on canvas:)  white poppy photowhite poppiesm white poppie

So excited to install a new exhibit at Quebrada’s belmont location! Quebrada has a reputation for delicious and FUN baked goods. “Party Fowl” and “Party Dog” seemed like natural choice’s to exhibit in the front window:) When you want to treat yourself it is the only place to go!

In a past life i may have been part of the “Les Fauves” (french for “Wild Beasts”)

Fauvist’s painters where characterized by using wild brushwork and strident colors.

Maybe  i am drawn to paint so many animal’s because i am at heart a “Wild Beast”?small bluish frenchiesmall redish frenchieIn a recent painting session I thought it would be fun to paint two small paintings of the same dog, One using the  blues and greens on the dog the next using the blues and greens in the back ground.
