“Sorry, I can’t. I have plans with my dog.”

After recently losing my boxer boy, you could say I have had dog on the brain. And I wanted to do another puppy love piece to keep occupied during this difficult time.

The head is wooden. Burned, stained and hand painted with tiny white and black puppies all over. The resin body is shades of rainbow, with splashes of teal, pink, aqua and mango with flecks of cerulean and copper. The wire extends from both hands, with a paw print on one end, and an elaborate bead twist with heart charm.

The heart shaped wooden stand has been hand painted matching colors, stained and varnished.

Size wise he is about 3.5 inches tall, 3.5 inches wide and 3 inches deep

He is a one of one.

He’s in the shop now!

“Portrait of a Laugh” 10×20

My back has been just killing me today. And I had every intention of resting it up until right after lunch, when I was suddenly struck with an image in my head that I absolutely had to paint (this was totally unrelated to the Cuba Libre I enjoyed with my tacos).

I tried to do as much as I could standing, and three hours later, she was finished and ready to dry in this California heat.

“Brutal Honesty” 12×16

In my attempts to keep distracted from my dogs excruciating decline from degenerative myelopathy, came this painting today…

It feels like several styles coming together. And I like that it’s messy but detailed. Colorful but dark…
