Painting finished, as yet untitled

I thought I had this finished yesterday, but still did some tweaking on it today. It was quite a marathon and I am pretty happy with the results. I have to say though, that this is a piece that is hard to appreciate in a photograph. It appears softer and more glowing when you see it in person and the photo really didn't replicate the color subtleties.
Now, to get caught up on some watercolors and several other art projects......

Work in progress

Let me share with you a new piece I am working on now. A lot of work to be done on it before it is done, but it is at the point where I can share the progress. It is a large oil, 30 x 40". I think this image is a bit brighter than the original, as the paint is still wet. I am spending hours on it daily so I hope to post some more progress tomorrow. Today's work was interuppted by an electrical problem at home. Although the electricians have to come back tomorrow, I should be able to get a lot of painting time in.
My show at Appalachian Physical Therapy is ongoing. It will run through the end of May. I have over 30 pieces hung there, dog paintings, landscapes and figurative. It is in Pinehurst, NC so if you are in the area, be sure to stop in and take a look. The Rhodesian Ridgebacks in residence will be sure to give you a paws up.

I have had quite a busy spring so far.... hope it continues. Of course I am working in my studio, finished a couple new breeds for my print line, the Great Pyrenees and an Australian Cattle Dog. I am also working on some oils, figurative this time. Will post when I have something to show.
I have a painting in the Double Exposure Exhibit at the Chatham Camera Club this month and also hung a solo exhibit in Pinehurst at the Appalacian Physical Therapy. What a great space, very open and lots of walls. I have about 30 pieces on display there for the months of April and May.
I am really looking forward to some more plein air experiences, especially this spring. Just need to get out there and paint. Looks like a little trip to the mountains might be in the near future.
