I posted my latest painting, "Unlikely Friends", the other day, and said that I have more news surrounding this painting. It's very exciting news! Four of my prints, including "Unlikely Friends", will be framed and given out as awards for 20 winners at the upcoming 2013 JRTCA sanctioned field trials! At their last field trials they had 24 States represented! Being a Jack Russell Terrier owner and fan; this is especially exciting for me. They are wonderful, intelligent dogs, and I just know the dogs will love being a part of the field trials. There is a division for "Working" Terriers, so my Fox paintings, (Fox In Leaves and Fox), fit right in, and will be used for 10 of the smaller awards. My "Mother's Day", and "Unlikely Friends" will be large prints, and they will be used for the big awards! I can't tell you how much fun it is to design, paint and see my work being used to honor such beautiful dogs! I will be sent pictures of the framed pieces, and I will be sure to share them with you. Here's an interesting, and informative, link for the Jack Russell Terrier Club of America. If you have a JRT or are interested in becoming a JRT owner...this site is great!
Unlikely friends... A subject that I like to paint, and my latest painting is just that, an unlikely friendship. I will share more about this painting next week. The original will be in my Etsy Shop later today.
I don't always do test paintings, but once in a while I like to try-out colors, or textures, before I start a larger painting. This little guy, "Roger", is a test painting. It's a small 4" X 6" canvas panel, and I kind of like the way he turned out. I think he will be cute framed, and you can use a standard frame, so it shouldn't be very expensive. I hope it's as nice where you are as it is here! We finally have summer weather! YAY!!! Have a great weekend!
It's been a while since I've been here, I know. I'm trying to get my Art Business organized, and that's not an easy task. It's pretty overwhelming, actually. And, I just deleted my ranting... LOL On a lighter note...the doggy above, Sophie, is a commissioned piece that I just finished. She was a ton of fun to paint. Now, I'm off to start painting Buffy. She's a smiling dog, and is guaranteed to make my day fun. I hope you are having a fun day, too!
