It’s been a long time since I had a figure drawing class! I took me close to three weeks and countless repaintings to get this one done! I seem to have completely forgotten how the human body is assembled! If I’m going to continue to grow as a painter, I think I need to make sure that I mix in a few people with the canines every now and then.
I know I shouldn’t have favorites, but Flora was my favorite. Sadly, we lost her to cancer almost two years ago. Typical of her breed, she often slept curled in a “husky ball.” This painting captures a memory I hold very close to my heart!
This painting has been kicking around in m head for a while now. I sketched it on the canvas about 3 weeks ago and then put the canvas away again. Since I was hunkered down, staying out of the path of Hurricane Irene this weekend, I thought I would take advantage of having nothing that I had to do and get some paint on the canvas. Surprisingly, I finished this one in only two passes. That could be a new record for me! It’s not quite as loose as I usually like, but I’m quit happy with the result!

This painting was commissioned several years ago. It is still one of my favorites! I lve the expression of the leader! So determined!
This was one of my first cows. I have created quite a few and have many more in my head…stay tuned!
