"TRICK OR TREAT"

These bears are going out for trick or treats. 
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Have a fun time this weekend!

"ANOTHER BRIGHT IDEA"

     
I'm doing some still life stuff this week. It's been awhile and
I figure it's time to do something a bit different.
Although I've done this subject before this one is 
quite different. 
6" X 6"
Oil on panel
Thanks!

"MY BACK YARD"

Moose resting in my backyard.
Just about everyday I go out for a hike I see 2 or 3 moose.
It's always such a treat. 
This is another small panel 
4" X 6"(I tink)
Thanks for looking.

It feels like it took forever to get here.
Thanks

"CATCH ME IF YOU CAN"

ARROYO BURRO BEACH, CA
It's been an entire week of paintings and this is about all I got. 
I love this little slice of dog heaven.
4.5" X 10"
oil on panel
This beach is north of Santa Barbara and they allow dogs to run on this beach.
My little LULU is always good at this beach. She loves to swim and play chase.
This dog had such a good time with my short legged corgi's he was literally
laughing at them because they had no chance of catching him. He would wait for
them and then take off again. We love this beach but only go there if you're a 
dog lover because there are dogs everywhere.
Sorry for no posts but it was like treading water all week. Hoping for
something better next week. 
Have a fun weekend!

"SPACE STATION - AGAIN"

I tried really hard to get you something different for today
but I've been wiping quite a few paintings 
because it's just not happening. Can't explain it
I will keep trying. 
Thanks for hanging in there.

"RABBIT EARS - AGAIN"

I'm getting ready for the holidays. You must forgive me. 
The Creekside show has been extended thru November.
I'm producing some more signs 
There appears to be a slight demand for these paintings.
We'll see.

be a thumbs up or not - stay tuned.

"SINGAPORE 2000"

I forgot to measure this painting. It's on
a scrap piece of panel. If anyone is interested 
I can measure and get back to you. 
It's small and sweet. 
Things are going better and I'm thankful for that.
Have a wonderful weekend!

"SPACE STATION III"

SPACE STATION AGAIN AND AGAIN
6" X 6"
Ok well here it is. This is what happens when I'm stuck so
you'll just have to endure it. Getting stuck is not any fun
and when it happens I have to paint something I've already painted. 
It's a mind game for sure I can't explain how this helps but it does. 
You'll see more of the same in the coming days.
Besides these are fun images for me and they will get me
out of this hole. Thanks for waiting.

"KOBE'

This is what Kobe's family has to say:
Kobe was our Samoyed who passed away at the young age of 10.5.  
How Samoyeds fall into the working class 
we still haven't figured out even after having three!  
Kobe was one of the laziest dogs,
 although one of the happiest, 
that we affectionately called our "slug."  
He truly brought a smile to everyone's face.  
We miss him dearly.
The proceeds from this portrait are donated to 
the Animal in Need Fund
at Pet Kare Clinic - Steamboat springs, CO
Thanks and have a wonderful weekend.

"EVE"

When in doubt paint a dog!
This is Eve and I've painted her once before. Her owner sent this photo
but this wasn't the pose the owner chose for a painting. I've wanted to
do this painting for quite some time.
 I was having some creative difficulties after the Nocturne plein air paintings. 
Turns out I had a lot of positive comments about those paintings
which is great but it can really throw me into a tail spin. 
It's kind of like how do I top that?
Well I can't - so I might as well paint a fun, cute dog instead of getting
hung up and stopped cold - Just Do It!
Thanks for looking and thanks for thinking of me.
