New Painting

Here is the newest painting (either below or moved to the website: )! The little dog up above the girl's head is my parent's Jack Russell Terrier, Cappy. She spends very little time with her feet actually on the ground, so I chose to put her in the air instead of on the ground like a "normal" dog! This was such a fun painting to do! The idea came to me in a dream.

The Beach

I took Taylor and Bailey to the beach with friends this week. It was a lot of fun. We go to a place off the beaten path (somewhat!) called Seagrove Beach in Florida. There are lots of galleries featuring local artists, and lots of small restaurants serving local seafood.

I worked in my journal every morning and evening and came up with some cool ideas for paintings. One idea will become my next painting. She's already a painting in my journal but I will be doing her again on plywood. The painting I was working on last week is only about an hour from being completed. I will post that one with my next post.

The SuziBlu class is really good. I have watched 5 videos now, very thorough, very cool. I wish she would do a book as well.
