Grumpy GirlI am grumpy If i have to walk the dog at sunrise before my morning coffee and If i have my coffee first before i walk the dog she is grumpy :/ I painted this painting from a photo i took of her while i was happy and drinking my morning coffee and she was grumpy waiting for her morning walk.


“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:) Chef wish

“Westie” just added to my amopainting store. Crazy as it sounds i may have to order a t-shirt! check him out at the store and tell me what you think?

I have been challenged by my paint group to paint only “Long haired”dogs! I find it harder to paint dogs with long hair vs short hair. I think it is because with a short haired dog it is easier for me to see the dog’s form and gesture and easier to transfer that form onto canvas. I believe i am on my way to loose my fear of the “Long Hair”
