Some watercolor dogs

All little watercolors, at the top Bulldog Puppy, 5 x 7" $25
Next is a greyhound on the beach, 5 x 7" in 11 x 14" mat, handpainted starfish on mat, and the saying "make a difference." $35
Two more greyhounds, lovely headstudies of a brindle and a parti-color. These are both embellished with little rhinestones on the collars and are $50 each.
At the bottom is an 8 x 10" of an IG also $50

More available paintings

Here are two small oil paintings, at the top is Snowy Boxes, it is a very small miniature, just 3" x 5". It is only $40 and would look good on a tabletop, shelf or on the wall.
Below it is Farmhouse Nocturne, it is 6 x 8" and $75. I love the stormy sky and the welcoming little light on the front porch.

Fall is here

First, thank you to the buyer of Sunset Arabian, it is now SOLD.
Fall has arrived with some cooler weather and misty rain. The trees are starting to burst with color. I spotted a maple yesterday that just glowed with an orangey-yellow. Wonderful, I love this time of year.
I am still taking orders for Christmas, both the mini specials and larger portraits, whatever you desire. Later today, I will post more photos of paintings that I will offer for sale that are not posted elsewhere.
Right now, I need to head into town for errands.

Cold here today, in the 50's but it is supposed to get warmer in a couple days. The leaves are just starting to change and I can't wait for all the fall color. I have to say that fall is my very favorite season. I love the colors, the smells of fallen leaves on the earth and burning wood and leaves, I even love the cold rains, it is so cozy when you come inside a warm inviting home. I love Halloween and I love Thanksgiving.

The luncheon at the Woman's Club of Raleigh, where I was the guest artist went off very well. It was lovely and everyone so friendly. The show was very well recieved.

Today, I am spending a lot of time in my studio, matting some prints, getting some orders ready to ship and working on some mini portraits. Life is good.

While in my studio, I thought I would pull out two little paintings to feature here and offer for sale.

Whippet Tapestry is 6x 8" oil on panel and is $125

Also available is Sunset Arabian 8 x 10" oil on panel and also $125

Shipping cost is included. If you would like to have one of these colorful little gems in your home, contact me at canineart@windstream.net

I am also still taking orders for the 5 x 7" mini watercolor portraits, perfect for holiday giving at $75 each and shipping is included in that price also.

Holiday Special

Here is a sample of one of the mini portraits I am doing for my holiday special this year. I am scheduling each little portrait as the order comes in and working on the first ones now. They are really fun and I know you can find someone on your list that would be delighted with a unique gift like this.
