Three Little...Doggies?





I am shipping these off today along with Night Watch to some new clients. The little dog portraits were only 4" x 4" and were a lot of fun to do. They were the last pieces I did before moving my studio around and thereby creating one big...MESS. 9 o'clock last night I decided to shut the doors and not look until tonight when I can get back to work.
Friday is the first art reception I've actually attended since Abby was born (1 year on the 18th). The Annual Library Showcase is here and I've been progressively getting more and more excited to go. Don't know what I'm wearing, don't know what frame my new piece Autumn Leaves is wearing, either, but it's a show! I can't wait to see my art buddies again.
I'm about to start experimenting with some tempura techniques this week. I am in between planned paintings right now so I'm going to see what I can come up with using a mixture of egg yolk and acrylic. I'm hoping for a glow comparable to that of gloss medium but with a different blendability. I suppose you will find out how it goes later on in the week!

Love those doggies! Fantastic exuberance in a 4x4" painting. Nice :)

Thanks! I started doing these for one request but I think I might do a few extra and make a larger work out of them.
