Well, it's been quite a while since I posted on here last. I guess I needed a break. After our beautiful Great Dane, Max, died back in August I had some difficulty getting back to painting--especially animals. But I got to thinking about it, and realized the best way to honor him would be to get involved again in animal rescue--and paint. So that's what I'm doing, and I have several new projects in the works. The painting on the left is one I started (I hate to say this) a couple of years ago. I don't know why I couldn't finish it, but I have--finally. I also have several new commissions in various stages of completion--pet portraits-- and one very interesting project which will definitely test my imagination as well as my painting skills! Curious? Well, you'll have to wait. I need to finish the pet portraits first, and then I'll start "the big one" and post progress reports! I'm excited about it--and here's a hint: it involves a dragon! Stay tuned!
