I haven't painted a moving corgi so here's my first attempt. Georgi doesn't have much color either - it made it tough to interpret a pale brown dog moving fast. Anyway I thought we all needed a little humor right about now and felt this might help. I will be doing some fund raisers this year. Pet portraits - 30 pets in 30 days - I'll try anything - birds - goats - pigs - what ever you have around the house. The total cost will be 125.00 - 100 bucks will go to the cause(to be determined)and 25 bucks to me(for supplies)   I'd love to do some dogs driving! Let me know if there is any interest out there. Thanks MB

I hemmed and hawed about this image. The original Flying Colors study is quite different from this rendition. I tried every combination of horse and rider and this is the one that stuck. This painting will be framed and shown at Center for Visual Arts for June(if it's dry). I need a better photo but you get the idea. Thanks!

"COW - boy II"

16" X 20" 
Oil on canvas board
I needed to paint something a little larger because I need new work for the gallery for June.  I have been quite stuck and apprehensive to get started on something of this size(from 36 sq in to 320 sq in). It was quite intimidating to have so much canvas staring me in the face. I got through it and am happy with the results. I'm slowly getting unstuck and productive. Thanks for following.
Do you like the new style blog? Is the darker background better for the work? Let me know what you think.

I've always wanted to paint some semi's so this is my first go at it. They're kind of fun so you'll probably see some more. Go figure! Thanks for following.

In Montrose, CO you can get your cigs and beer without leaving your car.  I don't know why I find this so odd but I do. Just had to paint it.
I'm not up to speed yet and not sure when the turbo is going to kick in - can't force it. More coming at a turtles pace. Thanks!

Bud - chainsaw art at its finest! You too can visit this roadside distraction - Parachute, CO.
OK - so I had to start somewhere. 
I can feel the pressure!

"ENGINE #95"

I am back but not producing yet. I did this painting before I left for my much needed visual - exciting vacation.  The recipient of this painting turned 95 in May and he's a steam train buff. It was fun to paint.

I will try to get some work out to you soon but I'm kind of overwhelmed with the choices. 
4 weeks - 4,500 miles - 2500 photos!
I hope you are all well.
Thanks for being patient.
