The Look, 6x6 Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald

"The Look" 6x6 Inches, Oil

Whew - the holidays are mostly behind us.  I have decided to participate in Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings In 30 Days Challenge.  It was so difficult to decide on the topic for the 30 days, that in order to de-stress, I decided to do one 30 day Challenge after another.  The first one, here, in January, is Pugs.  You'd think you'd run out of designs with one topic, but that's where the creative juices kick in.  All you have to do is to hint that I can't do something, and I'm off!  Kind of like that racehorse, Seabiscuit.  Anyway, they can't all be winners, but I'll post them all. 

If you have a pug, or any dog, and a cute photo of them (kind of close up) send it along to me - I'd love to give it a go!  No obligations or anything.  I just need the practice.

Anyone interested in purchasing these 6x6 inch painting, just email me at  They are $100, and to celebrate the New Year - I will offer free shipping!

Think, also, about joining us on Thursday a.m. or Saturday a.m. at my studio for classes - FUN!
