Robbie 2


This little guy took a little longer than  usual to complete as a commission because the decision was made after I began to move back to the home where I raised my boys. It all happened in two weeks time! The last two weeks have been spent settling in and setting up my new...old studio once again. His pet parents had me paint a second portrait of him as Cairn terriers apparently change colors during their lives. The other I did of him now with dark hair and this was from his puppy years. All in all, I am getting to know Robbie pretty well. He sure is a cutie!

Wouldn't you just love to give these two a scratch on the head and visit with them on your walk today? They look like a couple of characters and like they could get into some mischief.  I haven't posted in awhile but I have a good excuse! I moved! It was something I wanted to do but didn't
sure I could make it happen. So the whole decision to making the move happened in about two weeks. I am now back in the home where I raised my boys and it is so awesome. I had my adventure at the oceanfront for a couple of years, and then as a city girl for a few but there is truly no place like home Baile is loving her life again running around the back yard and my favorite thing is pulling into the garage with groceries instead of parking two blocks from my condo and hauling them up two flights of steps! Yesterday I made headway in my studio and should be able to get back to work! I miss painting and know it will be great to use all my new inspiration  into making new work. Have a wonderful weekend!

Purchase Information


Such fond memories were conjured up as I painted today's paint along with my oil class. As the mom of three sons, I tried to keep foods on hand that would satisfy the snack urges that would come along with time spent on homework. Our store carried small crates of clementines and it was amazing how quickly they would disappear! They are so easy to peel, unlike oranges and are so delicious! Turns out they are pretty fun to paint as well. I can't seem to get enough of red and orange and even had fun painting a woven basket.

From dogs to sheep...a wooly proposition. :-)  I took my time away from the easel to rest and regroup and could not stay away from portraits for very long. Whenever I paint a cow or sheep it takes me back to Ireland and some of the best memories of my childhood. They are so beautiful surrounded by an amazing pastural setting. I did see bunches of cows when on my birthday weekend this month in Charlottesville, Virginia. White ones like I saw so often in Ireland so I imagine they will make their way onto my easel shortly. Hope you are staying safe today with all these crazy storms.

   Weimaraner Dogs are also known as Silver or Gray Ghost. They originated in Germany in the 1800's and were bred from pointing breeds, bloodhounds, and mastiffs. They were bred to be hunters and have a distinctive grey color. Dwight D. Eisenhower owned a Weimaraner.  They look so soft and regal too. I also read that they are very smart and need lots of exercise. 

    I have come to the end of my challenge and it has been a grand adventure meeting new furry friends on my easel, sharing on Facebook, and finding new collectors. Thank you to everyone who
participated. Time to schedule my massage and pop open some champagne! Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend!
