Oh. Yes I've been very bad. Between work, teaching and being sick last week, I ended up TWO short in my 30x30 paintings! So I did the value study painting below, yesterday, and it's COUNTING, and today I did the pug above. This is my pug, who will not wear clothing for dogs. Apparently my husband's scarf is acceptable. Don't tell my husband I wrap the dog in his scarf, OK?
I'm exceptionally happy with this painting, because it's more than a pug, it's a painting. Do you know what I mean? Even if you squint and sort of lose the whole dog-thing, I like the shapes, the color, the paint application. OK, done patting myself on the back. Sometimes it seems like you just can't do anything, and sometimes it's just.... yeah.
Hopefully I'll be able to post 2 tomorrow as well, but I'm moving my studio, so... who knows. Wish me well! xoxo
