“Sweetie” is enjoying her spot in the DOG SHOW at Cambridge commons!

Soon the herd will pack up and hit the road when the show ends Aug 6th.

We have had a great stay and appreciate all the support (and the burgers) at Cambridge Commons:)

By request the “Rooster Chef” has been added to my store! I think he looks great on canvas in a float frame (black or white) and not to shabby on an I phone either:) http://nuvango.com/amopainting/rooster-chef/medium-whiteframe-canvas)Rooster Chef

Last summer i was able to take a wonderful class with Marcia Ballou at the North River Arts in Marshfield, MA

This photo is from a work i created in class using marker, spray paint and pastel, I had never used spray paint or pastel on canvas before and the canvas was very large so i needed to paint outside. I loved Marcia’s sense of adventure and i think all her students had a lot of fun while learning something new! I may not use pastel or spray paint again on my paintings but i know i will continue to use Magnum size  paint marker’s 🙂new web new class sunflower

Today my plan was to paint a portrait of a human and i forgot my source photo:(  SURPRISE  I found a photo of a sweet canine and i painted it instead 🙂 Often times when something unexpected happens with painting i have learned to just go with it and have fun,white dog on pinkToday was one of those fun days!blue dog on orange

What could be better than spending time w/family relaxing by the ocean and coloring/painting in Lisa Congdons coloring books? Sounds like the perfect 4th to me:) visit her site, she is an amazing artist and inspiration:)

Last summer I was lucky enough to spend some time painting at the beach. Limited resources lead me to paint on tiny canvases (8″ x 10″) Small canvases can be challenging and fun at the same time:)Small Stills
