"Puppy Love aka Quinn" oil on board 6x6" NFS
As I was painting this it occurred to me that it is really more a "still life" of a puppy than a portrait. I'm not sure what it was about the end result that made me feel that way. However, I don't object. He might be just one of the most adorable things I've ever seen. High cute quotient.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
