"A Rose By Any Other Name...Rosie!" oil on canvas 20x30"
This it the 13 year (oops! I lied. I just found out she will be 17 on April 1) old pup of my of my dearest friends. She has three little devils and Rosie is the oldest. She has some seeing issues and isn't too spry but boy! does she have a face a painter can love. I was a bit worried about the scale of the canvas because in real life she is pretty small. Silly me! that personality fills the space with no problem.
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.
