"The Eyes Have It" oil on masonite 6x6" $99 + $9 shipping
Wow! this didn't play out like I expected. Before I began I thought the black, white and gray would be an insurmountable problem. It never occurred to me that the eyes could carry the entire piece. The more dogs I paint the more I look forward to painting the next one. It will be interesting to see how it changes my human portraits.
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.
