Naptime, 6x6 Acrylic


SOLD


Oh, he's too warm to do too much else, here in July!  But truthfully... Paco is a CHAMPION napper. He can fall asleep sitting up.  Or licking my face.  I love the red blanket, too, it's almost like he picks a 'paintable' background sometimes!

I had a wonderful Open Studio weekend.  This was my 'soft' weekend, without invitations, etc.  The BIG one is in August - believe it or not,  it will probably be cooler.  I met so many interesting people, and saw lots of friendly faces from last year - it was great!  Lots of people were interested in classes and workshops, too.  I'm thinking of a couple of Painting Safari's - one in the RI area and one in Hull - where we paint outdoors at a different wonderful location each week.  I'll demo, then we'll paint and do a critique -it'll have just a nominal fee. Beginner to intermediate levels.   Shoot me an email if you're interested, and I'll put you on the mailing list.

  1. This is too sweet. I love hearing the adventures of Paco. I love the blue tinge that helps define the black fur around his face and feet all set against that wonderful red background.

  2. I'd recognize that pooch anywhere, Kelley. Paco is quite the star. Is this his "good" side? I painted a pug named Louie for his owner and I must confess it was a fun little dog to paint. I can see why you paint him.

  7. I don't know what I am more impressed with, the fact that you live in a climate where August will be cooler or this beautiful Paco portrait!

  10. Just as cute as the first. You really captured Paco's pugnaciousness. I bet he snores just like our Booger did - so loud we had to have his bed in a different room.

  16. Kelley!

    This looks more like a study than a finished painting but it's still cute nonetheless!
