Splashy Pom!

I brought my unfinished cat to the dog park today, but could not do a cat... just couldn't... so I did this splashy little Pomeranian.

Unfinished Demo from Last Night

I had a LOT of people interested and charity events are ALWAYS more fun than real life!
The dinner was great and the winners incredible.
By asking the first person who I met, I decided the Rex Cat reference I had ready would be my demo.
It is pretty dramatic as is, but I am going to finish it tonight.
REMEMBER... we are not just dogs anymore!

First Demo Today

I went to the AZ Art Alliance Gallery where Gabriel's Angels, a therapy dog program, was supposed to have a doggie costume party. I only had a few hours because tonight was a big charity event!
I have been having fun doing a much looser looking dog style, more contemporary of late. So the bloodhound was the sample I took to the event (tomorrow's post) as my demo of size and style of my silent auction prize.

Fast Evening at the Park

So... I run out and bring my easel and my kit and a quick layout of this... and FORGOT MY PAINTS!!!
Well, I had my pencil. It is actually 9x12"

Two Redheads

I got mostly finished in the park and decided these needed some jazzing up so I got all free and splashy for two lovely dogs.

Back in the Park

I have finally been brave enough to venture out again. The blog crashed to a halt when both my Mother and Cat were ill last year about this time and I just lost the momentum. But...
I started this demo at a little show I was hanging, and decided the weather was so nice, I would continue it in the dog park!
Not promising a complete dog every day this year, but I am going to post even the progress shots... for SURE a dog a week. AND we will include cats and others...

Two lovely red headed Setters in progress.

Leonard, probably done.

I have a bad habit of being hyper focused. When I get a commission and have the times, I lock my knees in front of the easel and paint for up to 18 hours at a time and then burn out.
Leonard was a bit of a binge. I am happy as is, but I will probably live with him a little and see if I really want to add the background (I suppose the client will make that decision for me) but for today, he is complete.

A slide show...of the Amazing Leonard.

I started this demonstration piece in the Grand Opening event for the Arizona Art Alliance Gallery and previewed it against the wall of my human portraits

This a commissioned piece in progress (I hope)
I will post the finish in a new post but add to the show as I work.

Keep checking back!
